Summary Feedback
Snacks like Act II Jalapeno Nachos are eaten in large quantities by kids and youngsters in India.
Just 100 gm of this product contains a high 2.03 gm salt which is not advised for people with high blood pressure, kidney problems and lifestyle diseases. High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
Act II Jalapeno Nachos contains edible vegetable oil- palm oil. Palm oil is generally a safe oil as unlike most other vegetable oils, palm is primarily saturated fat. It does not have too much PUFA, which can get oxidized under heat and is often rendered toxic.
It also contains Hydrolysed vegetable protein (HVP). These are foodstuffs obtained by protein hydrolysis and are used as ingredients in frozen and packaged food.
According to European law wheat and soy are subject to allergen labelling on food information to consumers. We believe that Indian manufacturers of packaged foods must follow the best practices from the developed world and must specify if wheat and soy have been used.
In any case, we believe that the manufacturer must specify the source of the vegetable protein.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
This food derives almost all its calories from simple carbohydrates and vegetable oil. It is also high in salt. Such foods must be eaten sparingly and in small quantities even by healthy people. However, most people tend to eat such foods in large quantities, therefore creating a food safety problem.
It contains a high amount of salt in it at 2.03 gm salt in a 100 gm pack. High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
Act II Jalapeno Nachos contains palm oil. Palm oil is generally a safe oil as unlike most other vegetable oils, palm is primarily saturated fat. It does not have too much PUFA, which can get oxidized under heat and is often rendered toxic.
However, last year, the safety authority delivered a scientific report that current levels of glycerol-based process contaminants found in palm oil are a “potential health concern.” Animal studies have identified these contaminants, which are formed when vegetable oils are heated to high temperatures and then refined, as both genotoxic (damaging to DNA) and carcinogenic (causing cancer). Of all vegetable oils, palm oil was found to have the highest levels of these contaminants. At high levels of exposure, these contaminants are a health hazard for all age groups, the authority concluded, expressing particular concern for infants, toddlers and children under the age of 10.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 3 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The macro or micro nutrient profile of this food is fairly uni dimensional and devoid of the nutritive value expected from a wholesome meal.
We are unable to endorse this food as part of a healthy diet and recommend that it is best avoided; or eaten in very small quantities only by healthy people and that too as a part of an otherwise wholesome and nutritious diet.
