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...
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!
