Eat Smart With The Right Sauce

Sauces are an essential element in cuisines all over the world, a culinary solution to transform your recipes into a rich feast of the senses.
The word “sauce” is a French word that means a relish to make our food more appetizing. Indeed we use sauces to add flavor, moisture, and visual appeal to a dish.
Sauces may be used for sweet or savory dishes, can be served warm like Spinach & Broccoli sauce, poured over food or cold spread like bruschettas.

Healthy eating is about eating smart and enjoying your food. Simple improvements in the nutritional content of a recipe, such as using the right sauce, can maximize food’s flavor and nutrition.

High-quality sauces will make your dishes more digestible and beneficial, while adding a new level of taste and enjoyment to otherwise average or plain dishes.
Sauces made with a healthy balanced mix of ingredients can be an important component of a good nutritional diet and help reduce symptoms of chronic diseases and aid in weight loss.

4 Factors to Consider When Choosing a Sauce

  1.  Look at the ingredients list and choose sauce made with vegetables or fruits as main ingredients.
  2. Look at the nutrition facts part of the label and choose sauces low in saturated fats (less than 2gm per serving) and sodium (less than 350-400 mg per serving).
