Scant on Mediterranean
It is stuffed with nearly half a day's saturated fat. In a classic Mediterranean diet, cheese is used sparingly, in meals built around a base of fruits, vegetables, grains, and fish.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends the Mediterranean diet as an eating plan that can help promote health and prevent disease.
Too Much Saturated Fat
For most Americans, getting a large dose of saturated fat in half of what looks like a modest-sized single-serving pizza just adds insult to the injury caused by dozens of other saturated-fat-filled, calorie-dense foods.
Assuming you stop at half, your "light" Italian bread delivers 410 calories and 14 grams of fat (eight of them saturated), plus 670 mg of sodium (more than a quarter of a day's worth).
Cedarlane also makes two other flavors by stuffing the same Italian bread with a tomato and cheese filling (Italian) or with tomatoes, basil, garlic, and mozzarella (Roma Tomato and Basil). Either will make your artery walls look like the inside of a focaccia.
Cedarlane's Focaccias may be "natural," but so is lard. That doesn't make it good for you.
