Pocket Picker & Belly Buster

Well, maybe so but... Kraft's sophistication comes at a price to your waistline, never mind your pocketbook.

Eat Kraft Bistro Deluxe Macaroni and Cheese with caution...

1 cup measure The mac 'n cheese packages contain three, 1-cup servings. If you eat just that one-cup serving, you'll be getting:

  • 300 calories
  • 6-1/2 grams of fat (one-third of a day's allotment)
  • 800 to 929 milligrams of sodium (half a day's allotment)

In addition to the other claims by Kraft, they also state that Bistro Deluxe is "A Good Source of Whole Grain"; however, the FDA has asked the food industry not to make that claim.

In addition, Bistro's 9 grams of whole grain per serving are not much when the dry pasta in that serving weighs about 50 grams.

In other words, 80 percent of that pasta is refined; only 20 percent is actually whole-grain.

Perhaps "damaging" is a better word to describe this dish!

Suggestion: Consider Annie's Whole Wheat Shells and Cheddar or any of her other home-grown products or even Kraft's Organic Macaroni and Cheese instead.
