Is Panera Bread Really Healthy? What Not To Eat

September 17, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 9 Comments

Panera Bread is a very popular spot to grab a meal, but is Panera’s food as healthy as it claims?

They offer a wide variety of foods like soups, sandwiches, and salads, as well as breads and baked goods, and have a reputation for being the healthier choice.

On the surface, all of those options sound healthy and satisfying, but what happens when we dig a bit deeper? Let’s take a look.

First, let’s look at what Panera Bread has done to increase their “healthy” reputation.

In 2015 Panera committed to removing 150 additives from their menu, stating they were concentrating on clean wholesome ingredients going forward.

They define clean as nothing artificial, specifically flavors, colors, preservatives, or sweeteners. Some of the ingredients they removed were:

  • Aspartame
  • Caramel color
  • Nitrates/Nitrites
  • Lard
  • High-Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
  • Sucralose
  • Titanium Dioxide (preservative)

As you can see, that’s just a small list of some pretty scary ingredients that Panera has removed from their menu since 2015.

Does removing those components make Panera’s meals healthier for you though?

You might think so, but you should take a closer look at the ingredients they still use, and the amounts of ‘safe’ ingredients they include before deciding.

Since bread is in the name of the restaurant, lets take a look at Panera’s most popular breads.

The Breads

The always-popular soft dinner roll has 190 calories, which is about even with other brands, but ingredients in their breads like High Heat Milk Solids, and Sorbitan Monostearate (a synthetic wax used as an emulsifier) are questionable, as is the 320mg of sodium in each one.

Moving on to bagels, the number one seller is the Everything bagel, which sells out frequently.

If we take a look at the Pumpkin Pie bagel you’ll find some unfortunate ingredients as well.

Panera uses ‘Cinnamon Flavored Confectionery Chips’ as part of the bagel, which contain Palm Kernel Oil, and ‘natural flavor’.

Palm Kernel Oil is high in saturated fat, which is why bakeries use it in their baked goods, it has a better shelf life.

Natural Flavour is extremely ambiguous, and can include anything from plant or fruit extracts to animal secretions.

Sometimes, it’s not the best ingredients in your breakfast.

The Soups

Lets move on to meals, starting with soups. Tomato soup is a classic comfort food, especially if you pair it with a grilled cheese sandwich.

Panera’s Vegetarian Creamy Tomato soup with croutons is one of the WORST soups to pick on their menu.

It has relatively low calories but makes up for it with 13g of fat and 910mg of sodium.

Even worse is the Vegetarian Autumn Squash soup at 17g of total fat and more than 1200mg of sodium!

Don’t plan on eating anything else today if you eat that, because you might just turn into a raisin from all the sodium.

The Salads

Salads seem like a good choice if you’re concerned about ingredients right?

Well, yes and no.

Salads are one of the easiest things to go overboard on; it’s very simple to pack a salad with ingredients that aren’t so great for you in the name of ‘healthy’.

The thing to note is that restaurants pack salads and salad dressings with TONS of ingredients to make them visually appealing, but are they doing you more harm than good?

The short answer is yes.

Panera’s Southwest Chile Lime Ranch Salad with Chicken has more than 1200mg of sodium when you eat the full serving of dressing as well.

That’s comparable to Wendy’s Dave’s Single Cheeseburger, and the cheeseburger at least has more protein to keep you full!

The salad also has more than 125 ingredients including all of the different dressings and garnishes. 125 ingredients. For a SALAD.

Some of these ingredients include Soybean Oil and/or Canola Oil, all of which are high in saturated fats and often come from genetically modified crops.

Other salads like the Spicy Thai Salad with Chicken are better, but still pack a punch of approximately ½ of your daily sodium allowance and more than 50 ingredients.

What about Sandwiches?

Surely they should have simple ingredients right? Bread, meat, vegetables, maybe some cheese.

Again, you need to take a closer look.

The Roasted Turkey, Apple, and Cheddar sandwich clocks in at 710 calories and 32g of fat.

That’s MORE than the cheeseburger that was referenced above, and is close to being the one of the highest levels on the entire menu.

Once again it’s the sauces and dressings Panera uses on its sandwiches that are the problem. Ingredients like canola oil and soybean oil are again, high in saturated fat and are very processed when refined, and are found in both the dressing used, as well as the turkey meat in the sandwich. What may surprise you is the Classic Grilled Cheese sandwich.

It contains 26g of fat, and a whopping 1580mg of sodium.

You’re asking yourself ‘why?’ right now, and that’s a very good question. In this case, the pasteurized processed American cheese is the problem.

This ‘plastic cheese’ is devoid of almost all of the healthy things about cheese, and adds in preservatives like Sorbitan Monostearate and a whole lot of fat and salt to make it taste good.

These sauces definitely add a level of flavor to your sandwich that you wouldn’t get at home, but is it worth the extra pounds?

Absolutely not.

So what can you eat at Panera bread that will be a healthy choice?

That’s a very good question. If you’re in the mood for a sandwich, swap out the sauces and dressings, and chose something like the Roasted Turkey Cranberry that has less than 400 calories and 12 g of fat, plus an added serving of spinach for some extra protein and fiber.

For soups, there are really no great options.

Skip the soups at Panera all together.

Salads are much easier to modify in a healthy way.

Ask for the dressing on the side and have a tablespoon or two instead of drowning the bowl with it.

Even the Cesar salad with Chicken isn’t a terrible option if you leave off most of the dressing.

At the end of the day, Panera is a chain restaurant like any other, and they make menu choices based on maximum flavor and visual appeal.

While their commitment to using clean ingredients is admirable, they lose major points for the hidden ingredients they still use, and the high sodium and fat in many of their dishes.

If you make good, informed choices about the food you put into your bodies, both at home and when eating out, you will achieve your health goals in no time at all.

Why You Should Never Order Restaurant Ice

September 14, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 4 Comments

One of the greatest pleasures in life is going out to eat. You get great food and you don’t have to cook! However, there are many items at restaurants that could cause harm to our health if we are not careful.

Sometimes, it is the items you think are the most innocent that are the most harmful.

One of these items is ice, and if ice machines are not cleaned properly the amount of bacteria within them could cause serious illnesses.

Ice comes standard at every restaurant, whether it be fast food of high dining.

The problem with having ice in your drink is the harmful bacteria that is often found within the ice.

A study showed that 6 out of 10 restaurants ice machines had higher levels of bacteria than their own toilet water.

We would never drink the toilet water from a restaurant, but we blindly drink and chew on the ice in the drinks given to us.

Ice Can Lead To Illness

Ice machines aren’t something restaurants think they need to clean very often.

The problem with ice machines is they can create mold like any other appliance.

The constantly wet environment makes ice machines the perfect atmosphere for mildew and mold to grow.

Some may think that ice machines are too cold to harbor harmful bacteria, but that is far from the truth.

In fact, some of the most dangerous bacteria is able to survive in the cold of ice machines.

Ice machines can harbor E. coli, Shigella, Cholera, Typhoid fever, Legionella, Hepatitis A, Salmonella, and Norwalk virus.

These illnesses can be life threatening if not caught and treated quick enough.

The bacteria grows very fast, as well. Populations of bacteria can double every 10 minutes, leading to an unstable outbreak within the ice machine.

And since these ice machines aren’t cleaned near as often as they should be, the bacteria sticks around.

If the restaurant you are going to uses a hand scooper for ice, the levels of bacteria become much higher.

This ice is also subject to fecal matter, which comes with its own host of illnesses.

Avoiding the Bacteria

The best way to avoid the bacteria is to stop ordering ice from restaurants. Unfortunately, most restaurants are unaware of their problems with the bacteria filled ice.

In order to protect you from harmful illnesses, avoiding ice is best. Most drinks are already stored in a cool area, so you while you may not get something ice cold, it won’t be lukewarm either.

Ice mold and bacteria isn’t only left to restaurant freezers. Bacteria and mold can also occur in your own household.

If you are trying to remember the last time you cleaned your ice machine, it has been too long.

Your ice machine should be cleaned every three months.

To clean your ice machine, unplug your icemaker. Never try to work on the ice while it is still running.

Once it is unplugged, remove the icemaker and wash it with warm water and mild dish soap. If possible, run the different parts from the icemaker in a sanitizing cycle in the dishwasher.

If you cannot sanitize your icemaker in the dishwasher, wipe it down with a water and vinegar mixture.

Try one part vinegar to five parts water. You also need to wipe down the inside of the freezer with this water and vinegar mixture.

Some ice machines will have a cleaning cycle built in. If so, run this cleaning cycle once and then dump out the ice it made.

While it can seem like it takes awhile to clean out your ice machine, the benefits to your health are worth it.

By properly sanitizing your ice machine you prevent harmful bacteria and mold build up.

These bacteria are severe enough that they could cause a fatal illness.

Always avoid restaurant ice, especially from fast food restaurants. If you avoid the ice at all costs, and properly clean your own ice machine, you can avoid these harmful bacteria completely.

Is Your Organic Milk Really Organic?

September 11, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 0 Comments

Organic foods have recently become a major part of supermarket shelves.

You can find almost any food, whether produce or processed, in an “organic” version.

So what does “organic” mean? According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), “USDA certified organic foods are grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing, among many factors, soil quality, animal raising practices, pest and weed control, and use of additives.

Organic producers rely on natural substances and physical, mechanical, or biologically based farming methods to the fullest extent possible.”

Essentially, food production is held to a higher standard in order to earn the coveted “organic” label.

With this in mind, let’s talk about the difference between conventional and organic milk.

Because milk is an animal byproduct, many factors must be taken into consideration when determining if it may be labeled as organic.

Again, according to the USDA, “The USDA organic label on dairy or meat products means that the animals from which it originated were raised in living conditions that accommodated their natural behaviors without being administered hormones or antibiotics, and while grazing on pasture grown on healthy soil.

Then during processing, the meat or dairy product was handled in a facility that was inspected by an organic certifier and processed without any artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors before being packaged to avoid contact with any prohibited, nonorganic substances.”

Practically, this means several things. First, organic food is usually fresher because preservatives are not one of the ingredients. Fewer and more natural pesticides are used.

This means that all fungicides, insecticides and herbicides are not used because they tend to remain on and in the food.

Growth hormones, antibiotics and animal byproducts in their food are all prohibited for cows providing organic milk.

Antibiotics given regularly to livestock increases the likelihood of antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and feeding animal byproducts can increase the risk of mad cow disease in livestock.

Instead, cows are required to graze in open spaces for at least a certain amount of time. Going along with this, all food consumed by these cows must be GMO-free.

They cannot be fed foods that are genetically modified or genetically engineered.

In 2016, one study showed that organic milk had a greater amount of nutrients than conventional milk.

A study published by the American Dairy Science Association indicates that organic cow milk contains higher levels of vitamins, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids than conventional milk.

Because of all these standards, organic farming tends to be environmentally beneficial.

Using natural methods for farming means there is less pollution, better water conservation, less energy use, less soil erosion and better soil fertility.

Clearly, there are standards that are to be upheld in order for your milk to be considered organic, but how often do organic dairy companies uphold those standards to the highest degree?

Questionable Practices

Peter Whoriskey is a journalist who spent time investigating the organic farming practices of Aurora Organic Dairy, a company that provides organic milk to large retailers.

What he found was pretty interesting. During his investigation, he found that while they followed the protocol for allowing cows to have access to grazing pastures, out of 15,000 cows, only a couple hundred cows were ever out grazing at a time; the rest were in feedlots. While this might not be the case on every organic farm, it does raise questions about large, organic dairy farm practices.

The way that the USDA qualifies farmers as organic farmers may also be a point of concern.

Instead of the USDA sending out their own certifiers, the dairy farmers will hire their own inspectors who then certify them and report back to the USDA.

These inspectors visit the farm once a year to examine the standards.

This method of certification could raise questions because the certifier is paid by the dairy farm to report to the USDA.

They are not paid by the USDA for an objective report. As an example, Whoriskey discovered that the certifier who investigates Aurora Organic Dairy found that the visit takes place outside of grazing season, meaning the certifier does not even see the farm during grazing season—the time of the year that plays a big role in whether or not a farm can obtain “organic” status.

Horizon Organic milk, another popular store-bought brand of organic milk, has been found to implement some sneaky advertising.

According to their cartons, they contain DHA Omega-3, an omega-3 that supports brain health.

You would expect that there is increased omega-3 in their product due to better farming and grazing practices.

After all, some studies do show some increase of omega-3 in milk from cows that graze regularly, but this is not the cause in Horizon’s milk.

Instead, they actually add an omega-3-containing oil produced by algae that is fed with corn-syrup.

Apart from the gross-factor, there is hardly any GMO-free corn in the United States causing you to wonder if the corn-syrup fed to the algae is GMO-free.

If it is not, this seems like a violation of the non-GMO aspect of organic standards.

As you can see, just because something is labeled “organic” does not necessarily mean it is of a higher quality or is a result of better practices than conventional dairy farms.

Why it’s important to buy local

While not all small, organic dairy farms may uphold perfect standards, many of them will have better farming practices than the big farms simply because they have fewer cows to feed.

This allows for more grazing throughout grazing season and quicker milking times.

Buying organic milk from local farmers also gives you the opportunity to visit their farms to see their farming practices for yourself and get to know their passion for organic farming.

How to determine the quality of your organic milk

If you want to really know the quality of your milk and how closely the farm it comes from follows organic standards, but you cannot personally visit the farm, you can look at the code on a house brand carton of milk.

Aurora Organic Dairy’s code is 08-29, and other house brand codes will be four or five numbers. With this information, you can research the farm and determine if they follow protocol to your satisfaction.

Another good resource is the Cornucopia Institute.

They are major advocates for family farming, and state that “…through research and investigations on agricultural and food issues, [the Cornucopia Institute] provides needed information to family farmers, consumers and other stakeholders in the good food movement and to the media.

We support economic justice for the family-scale farming community – partnered with consumers – backing ecologically produced local, organic and authentic food.”

Always research the brands of milk you are interested in purchasing if you choose to buy organic milk so that you may know that your milk is of the highest quality!

How Mercury Dental Fillings Destroy Your Health

September 8, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 5 Comments

When you or your loved ones get a cavity, the dentist fills it with amalgam or composite resin.

You have the choice between a silver filling, amalgam, or the white composite resin made from plastic and glass.

While many have chosen to go with the tooth-colored composite resin, amalgam fillings still account for half of all dental fillings.

It is well known that mercury should not be handled regularly and that any amount of mercury is unsafe for our bodies.

However, amalgam fillings are made up of 50% mercury and are still used daily.

Whether insurance companies won’t cover composite resin or the amalgam filling is cheaper, millions of people are poisoning themselves daily when they get a cavity filled.

What Are Mercury Dental Fillings?

Amalgam fillings have been around for over 150 years. They are silver in color and combine mercury with other metals like silver and tin to create a long lasting dental filling.

These fillings are used when tooth decay causes cavities. These fillings have been found to be questionable in their safety when researched because of the potentially toxic levels of mercury they contain.

While the ADA claims that the mercury in these tooth fillings is safe because it is bound with other metals, researchers have found that even small amounts of mercury can cause toxicity.

The most vulnerable people are young children and pregnant women. Young children can become sick from very small amounts of mercury.

Just one dental filling in children under six could cause potentially harmful effects.

As far as pregnant women go, research has found a correlation between dental fillings and mercury in the cord blood of their fetus.

To limit damaging birth defects, pregnant women should avoid receiving dental amalgam fillings at all costs.

For the average healthy person, mercury dental fillings may not cause as harmful effects as they do to children and pregnant women.

However, it should be noted that the effects could still present themselves.

Mercury causes harms to our body by binding to sulfur groups.

Sulfur is needed in our body for biochemical processes and is essential for our life.

Sulfur makes up vital amino acids that create our cells, tissues, hormones, enzymes, and antibodies.

Mercury binds with sulfur, causing harm by decreasing the amount of good sulfur our body can use.

This increases inflammation and free radicals in our body.

What Harm Do Mercury Dental Fillings Cause?

The problem with mercury dental fillings is that the mercury can leak from the filling.

While it may be a small amount of mercury, researchers have found that no level of mercury is safe for our bodies.

This small amount of mercury leaks everyday each time you eat, drink, and breathe in through your mouth.

The mercury is leeched into the body and can cause an extensive amount of bodily harm.

The more mercury dental fillings a person has, the more toxic mercury leaks into their body.

Mercury dental fillings come with a long list of side effects. If you have amalgam fillings, you could have mercury toxicity.

Mercury toxicity can occur whenever an individual is exposed to mercury. The more mercury they come in contact with, the more severe the symptoms can be.

Mercury toxicity includes symptoms like mood swings, insomnia, headaches, tremors, exhaustion, weakness, or decreased cognitive functions.

People with mercury toxicity may feel tired all the time and feel like they are living in a fog.

Besides mercury toxicity, amalgam fillings can cause many side effects or illnesses later on.

People with previous kidney or neurological problems should avoid mercury dental fillings completely because mercury can be very damaging to the brain and is released through urine.

Mercury is also a known carcinogen, meaning that it increases a person’s risk of getting cancer later in life.

Diseases like ulcerative colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut syndrome, and Crohn’s disease have all been linked to high levels of mercury.

Mercury is also known to worsen food allergies, trigger Alzheimer’s disease, and cause diabetes.

Mercury is best to avoid on a daily basis. The number of chronic diseases it is linked to is rising as more research comes out.

While some mercury is impossible to avoid, dental amalgam fillings are the cause of many mercury poisonings in people across the world.

Amalgam fillings don’t just stop in your mouth. Mercury is flooded into the environment from making and dealing with these amalgam fillings.

The mercury ends up in our lakes, rivers, and oceans causing high spikes of mercury in fish and other animals.

A Better Alternative

Mercury containing dental fillings are harmful to our health. If you are concerned about the amalgam fillings you already have, it may be best to keep them.

Research has shown that removing these fillings can cause a greater release of mercury in the body.

However, if you or your loved ones need a new filling, there are better alternatives than traditional amalgam.

Composite resin is tooth colored and can last just as long as an amalgam filling.

Other dentists will also use porcelain and gold materials to stop tooth decay and restructure your teeth.

While amalgam is the fastest way to repair a cavity, the potentially harmful levels of mercury are cause for concern.

Before you get a new filling, talk to your dentist about alternatives to the traditional amalgam filling.

More insurance companies now cover these alternative fillings to protect your health.

It is much better to pay a little more money and get a filling that doesn’t contain mercury.

What Really Goes Into a Jar Of Nutella?

August 31, 2017 by staff content in Health News with 6 Comments

With the release of Nutella inspired foodie treats like Nutella filled cronuts and fried wontons, this sweet chocolatey hazelnut spread is no stranger in the average household cabinet.

Nutella is consumed so often that the weight of consumption over a year is approximately the size of the Empire State Building.

However, Nutella hasn’t always had the following it holds today.

It’s rise to fame started as a humble endeavor to create a chocolate confection that was accessible to everyone.

Solidified hazelnut chocolate was made and became available to the average consumer in Italy.

This eventually got made into a spread and turned into what the world knows today as Nutella.

Nutella was and still is wildly successful and can be found in every grocery store.

Recently, the rise in popularity of Nutella has garnered a cult-like following.

Millennial and foodies alike are praising Nutella and incorporating it into their daily diet.

While the mix of chocolate and hazelnut is undeniably delicious, your Nutella spread may not contain as much of these ingredients as you think.

Nutella may taste great on your bread, or with crackers and pretzels, but in reality, it should be eaten just like a candy bar.

What Are the Ingredients?

If the back of the Nutella jar tells a consumer anything, it’s that the jar is made up of sugar, palm oil, hazelnuts, skim milk, cocoa solids, soy lecithin, and vanillin.

These ingredients are in descending order, meaning the first ingredient is what Nutella contains the most of.

Unfortunately, this ingredient is sugar. Nutella’s sugar content is extremely high, over half of each jar is made up of sugar.

This is far from what the advertisements would like people to believe is a healthier alternative to other spreads.

Sugar is linked to cancer, obesity, and other issues like spikes in glucose and insulin resistance.

If you eat a tablespoon of Nutella, you’re eating almost two teaspoons of straight sugar.

The next largest ingredient in Nutella is palm oil. Palm oil gives Nutella its creamy texture and makes the spread smooth and spreadable.

Many health issues can arise from the regular consumption of palm oil as it was deemed more carcinogenic than any other oil.

Recently, the European Food Safety Authority released a statement that contaminants created when palm oil is refined carcinogenic.

While it may not be true that eating Nutella can cause cancer, the palm oil used in Nutella are heavily processed.

However, palm oil is one of the cheapest oil available for manufacturers.

If Nutella changed the palm oil in their spreads to a healthier option, it would cost them tens of millions of dollars a year. Palm oil is also one of the least sustainable oil sources.

The rising demand for palm oil has caused tropical forests to be cleared away to make room for the mass planting of palm trees.

Clearing away these tropical forests leads to a change in the ecosystem of many critically endangered animals like elephants and tigers, among many others.

While hazelnuts, and cocoa solids, which is just cocoa powder, aren’t bad ingredients, the percentage of each of these is quite slim.

When eating Nutella, advertisements say it is a hazelnut spread with a hint of cocoa. Nutella is comprised of only 13% hazelnuts and less than 8% cocoa.

The majority of what is used as a spread worldwide is sugar and palm oil.

The remaining ingredients are soy lecithin and vanillin. Soy lecithin is an emulsifier. It keeps all the ingredients from separating, which gives the spread it’s long shelf life.

Vanillin is an artificial flavor that tastes like vanilla beans.

The problem with Nutella is it is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It is marketed as part of a balanced diet and leads consumers to believe that this hazelnut spread is made with wholesome ingredients.

A healthy and balanced spread should not include a spread that is 75% sugar and palm oil.

These two ingredients can be detrimental to the human body when consumed regularly.

If you haven’t tried Nutella thus far, you haven’t missed out on much. However, if you are a die-hard Nutella fan, there are tastier alternatives you can use that won’t wreak havoc on the environment and your health.

A healthier alternative to Nutella is making your own chocolate hazelnut spread at home.

With just a few ingredients, you can have a spread that tastes great with no palm oil and a lot less sugar.

With hazelnuts, cocoa powder, milk, maple syrup, and a small amount of olive oil or coconut oil, you get a healthy Nutella-like spread that tastes great and isn’t bad for you.

If you are not comfortable with making your Nutella at home, look toward getting a chocolate hazelnut spread that is made with wholesome organic ingredients.

It may be a bit more expensive, but it will also be a lot healthier.

While Nutella tastes great, the amount of sugar and palm oil in each bite is damaging your health more than you could imagine.

A chocolate and hazelnut combination should be consumed in a healthier and more sustainable way to make your body and the environment better.

If you love Nutella-like spreads but is concerned about its effects, feel free to make your own at home as you can find tons of alternative recipes with wholesome organic ingredients which will be a lot more healthier.
