General values

Choline is essential for the production of cellular membranes and plays a crucial role in acetylcholine synthesis and cholinergic neurotransmission.
Proteins are essential for a healthy, balanced diet. The recommended daily dose is 0.8-1g of protein per 1 kg of body weight.
Campesterol is a type of phytosterol present in small concentrations in vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Studies show that campesterol, similarly to other plant sterols, can help reduce cholesterol levels.
Foods with high water content help you stay hydrated. Water also helps transporting nutrients and oxygen throughout the body.

Food energy

The amount of food energy in kiloJoules (kJ) per 100g. The minimum daily requirement is approximately 7,500 kJ (according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).
The amount of food energy in kilocalories (kcal) per 100g. The minimum daily requirement is approximately 1,800 kcal (according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations).
Carbohydrates are composed of carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, and are divided in 4 groups: oligosaccharides (glycose), monosaccharides and disaccharides which are sugars and serve as a quick source of energy, while polysaccharides, like starches serve for storing energy.

Fats

A form of unsaturated fat with more than one double bond in its structure. Unsaturated fats are usually healthy fatty acids, increasing good cholesterol and decreasing bad cholesterol.
A form of unsaturated fat with one double bond in its structure. Unsaturated fats are usually healthy fatty acids, increasing good cholesterol and decreasing bad cholesterol.
Cholesterol is a lipid essential for producing hormones and takes two forms: LDL, or bad cholesterol, and HDL, good cholesterol. LDL (low-density lipoprotein) contributes to plaque, which can clog arteries and increases the risk of strokes and heart attacks. HDL (high-density lipoprotein) removes LDL from the arteries and carries it to the liver to be broken down.
Saturated fats are the unhealthy fatty acids that produce bad cholesterol and increase the risk of strokes and heart attacks. They come in high amounts from meat and dairy products.
Lipids are essential for a healthy, balanced diet. They provide energy and also play a key role in the production of hormones and cell membranes, as well as in the absorption of nutrients and fat-soluble vitamins.

Minerals

Calcium is a mineral which is very important for bone health. The recommended daily dose for adults is approximately 1000mg.
Magnesium is an important mineral for bone development and helps the proper functioning of various metabolic processes, like activating the enzymes that help in energy production.
Phosphorus is the second most abundant mineral found in the human body, after calcium. It helps cellular reproduction and contributes to the growth and repair of tissues.
Sodium helps regulate the water level in the cells, especially in the kidneys. The amount of sodium consumed also influences blood pressure.
Potassium is a mineral that helps muscles contract, regulates the fluid balance in the body, helps maintain a normal blood pressure and kidney health.
The ash content refers to the total amount of minerals contained (potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium).

Vitamins

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is important for maintaining the health of the nervous system. It works closely with folate (vitamin B9) in the production of red blood cells and the processing of iron.
Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that is primarily important for maintaining healthy vision. It also acts as an antioxidant and is important for the health of teeth, bones, soft tissues and skin. RAE (Retinol Activity Equivalent) is the unit of measurement the scientific community prefers.
Retinol (vitamin A1) plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy vision, especially night vision. It is important for the development of skin, bones and teeth.
Vitamin A is a fat soluble vitamin that comes in various forms. It is primarily important in maintaining healthy vision and the development of bones, soft tissues and skin. IU (International Units) is the unit of measurement that almost all food labels use.
Vitamin E Alpha (d-alpha-tocopherol) is a fat-soluble antioxidant that protects the body's cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, strengthens the immune system and prevents blood clotting.
D2 is produced by plants and D3 by the human skin when exposed to sunlight. Their main role is to maintain normal calcium and phosphorus blood levels, helping to promote bone and teeth health.
