What are your thoughts on this mail written by a nutritionist ?
I would probably know if I read the posts but the level in this forum is a little bit too high for me so I could use some help
almost half of the calories come from fat – 200cal fat/500 cal/serv. The first ingredient is oil. Besides that there is oat flour, mono and diglycerides as well as a bunch of gums (guar gum etc). These are all natural. They are added to promote satiety. The gums etc delay gastric emptying. It looks like they dropped a multivitamin in it for good measure to provide the vitamins. They list the chemical names of the vitamins e.g. alpha tocopherol to make it sound fancy. There are myriad micronutrients that we get from food. None of those are in there. There is also no fiber. It’s a rip off. They could mix it up themselves with oil, vitamins and some gums. They could also get Carnation Instant Breakfast with fiber and add a few teaspoons of oil.
