Watch those labels Have you noticed how hard it is to avoid excess salt, and sugar, in processed foods, here in Mexico? I thought it was bad in the states, but Mexicans seem to have a real sweet tooth, for one thing. Oatmeal's good for you, right? No saturated fat, naturally high in fiber, etc., etc. Recently, I looked more carefully at the label of some instant oatmeal I'd been using and enjoying in large quantities, mislead by the packaging which proclaimed, "No Sugar Added"! But, when I finally looked at the fine print in the nutritional information (I have no idea where they can find type that small), and calculated from the number of grams of sugar it contained to the number of teaspoons of sugar that would represent, it came to seven teaspoons of sugar! Goodness gracious.... That little event made me start looking more closely at other labels- on the canned corn I liked, for example. A single serving of that had almost 1,000 grams of salt! Too much, when the optimal maximum daily sodium intake is just 1,800. Anyone trying to observe a good diet, not too heavy in salt or sugars, must read carefully, when it comes to processed foods, here, and go online when necessary for a calculator that will help you convert grams to ounces, or other measures you're more familiar with.
