Keto & Health Insights for Cookstr Clams Casino Recipe

  • Net Carbs are 2% of calories per serving, at 6g per serving. This meal falls within the range for standard keto diet guidelines (at or under 25g of net carbs). If your daily net carb quota is 25g and if this food almost equals that much, consider whether you're going to eat more food later. Always take into account any foods you've already consumed. It's recommended that you track the macros of your daily food consumptions—this makes it easier to avoid overconsumption.
  • This food contains trans fat, a type of fat that's considered extremely unhealthy. Trans-fatty acids elevate bad cholesterol and lowers good cholesterol. And increases the likelihood for heart disease, strokes, and Type 2 diabetes.

  • This food's %DV (daily value percentage) for sodium is 30%. At 679mg, it's considered high in sodium according to the FDA's standard for %DV (daily value percentage), which considers any food with %DV of more than 20% as high in sodium. The organization recommends 2300mg of sodium as the daily limit. High sodium is believed to be associated with health problems such as heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure, and kidney malfunctions. There's also a belief that diets with high amounts of salt correlates with obesity, but the link hasn't proven to be so direct. Instead, salt may trigger overeating by increasing the feeling of hunger, according to studies referenced in this WebMD article about salt & obesity. Add-ons such as sauces and condiments are the usual high-sodium culprits in most restaurant meals. Sodium additives are responsible for most high sodium amounts in packaged foods, especially frozen meals. For most adults, a healthy range for daily maximum sodium consumption is between 1500-2300mg; foods should be within 5%-20% DV per serving.
