Do you sometimes find yourself staring at the supermarket shelf with vegetarian foods, confused what to choose?
Here are four guidelines to help you make the right choice:
1. Of the total calories of the product at least 20% needs to come from protein
(example: if the product contains 300 cal per portion, at least 60 cal need to come from protein. 1 gram of protein contains 4 cal, so this product must contain at least 15 grams of protein)
2. The product must contain more than 0,8 miligram iron per 100 gram
3. The product must contain more than 0,06 miligram vitamin B1 / 0,24 miligram vitamin B12 per 100 gram
4. The product shouldn’t contain more than 450 grams sodium per 100 gram
Try to eat legumes at least once a week: 130 grams is a good substitute for 100 grams of meat of fish.
Healthy and environment friendly!
