shop. save. smile.: Nutrition Made Easy
It’s the night of the big game! Your family and friends are all gathered around the TV in anticipation of what the final score will be. You survey the room and noticed the variety of fans. You have some die-hard fans that know each team’s stats and refuse to miss a second of the game. Then you have some fans that are interested in the game, but don’t understand all the jargon and just want to know the score.
When going into the grocery store you may feel like the second fan. You want to know which product is the most nutritious for you, but you don’t understand all the jargon. You just want to know the score. This is where the NuVal Nutritional Scoring System becomes helpful. The NuVal Scoring System places foods on a scale of 1 to 100; the higher the score the better the nutrition. There are 30 different nutrients and nutrition factors which are used to get the final score. The information that makes up the score is taken from the nutrition facts panel and the ingredients list.
Each of the 30 nutrients is like each play of the game. A play where the quarterback beautifully throws the ball right into the receiver’s hands is like omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and mineral. All of these can help increase the score. Then there are the plays where the quarterback throws the ball, the ball is intercepted and the other team scores a touch down. This negatively affects the scores like trans fats, sodium, cholesterol and sugar.
NuVal is like the summary of the game. It takes all those beautiful passes and heart breaking interceptions and gives you the score. You can take two products, put them head to head without knowing their stats and by looking at their score you know which one is the winning product.
