Aug

Let’s face it. Most people don’t know much about the ingredients that make up their food. I mean, in a perfect world, they shouldn’t have to think all that much about it. Food is food right? Unfortunately, in today’s day and age where technology is advancing every day and food production is becoming incredibly streamlined, ingredients have become more foreign, harder to pronounce, and just flat-out worse for our health. We hate to break it to you, but it’s time to start paying attention to the ingredients in your food – point blank period. 

Luckily, you don’t have to do it alone! We’re here to help break down what to look out for in an ingredient list, and more specifically, why The Pizza Plant is the way to go when it comes to eating more wholesome, less processed ingredients. If you’ve visited this blog before, you’ll know we’re all about a certain type of food – pizza, of course! Today, we’re going to compare a couple popular pizza brand’s nutrition labels with ours, as well as give you an inside scoop into the nutritional facts of our Salsiccia Italiano plantbased pizza. If you find this post helpful, be sure to share it with a friend who could use a little help with reading nutrition labels, or is simply a pizza lover like you!

What Should I Look Out For On a Nutrition Label?

We know, we know. It’s not the most practical suggestion to read the nutrition label on every food item before purchasing it. However, it is a good idea to get in the habit of skimming over them from time to time. Here are a few things you should be looking out for on nutrition labels and ingredients lists:

 

  1. Words that you can’t pronounce:

    As a simple rule of thumb, if the ingredient list contains long, scientific-looking words that you’ve never seen before, it probably means some of the ingredients are artificial and, to put it plainly, not good for you. Go for foods that have wholesome, natural, and easy-to-pronounce ingredients!

  1. Absurd amounts of sugar:

    Sugar is not just in desserts. In fact, sugar is in a lot more foods than we realize and can lead to adverse health effects like weight gain and cardiovascular disease. Another good idea is to always ask yourself, “should there be a lot of sugar in this food?” If the answer is “yes, probably,” then you could be looking at a wholesome food like fruit, milk, etc., that naturally contains sugar. But, if  the answer is “no, probably not,” then you may be looking at a food that contains unnecessary added sugar, like cereal, protein bars, and even snacks like chips!

 
  1. High trans fat:

    Don’t get us wrong – fats are a necessary part of every human’s diet. But, again, wholesome fat sources like nuts, avocados, and oils are what you should be reaching for, rather than foods that contain high levels of artificial fats. Trans fat increases your bad cholesterol levels, and is found in “junk foods” like cookies and processed crackers. What we’re saying here is, avoid them when you can.

The Pizza Plant Nutrition Labels Compared To Other Popular Brands

Check out this comparison of our Salsiccia Italiano pizza and Daiya pizza. You’ll notice that although both are fully vegan, Daiya’s pizza contains many more hard-to-pronounce ingredients as well as ingredients that aren’t all that healthy for you.
