Wheat Thins Multigrain: Good news

January 28, 2013 |

A year ago I have recommended Wheat Thins Original. For some reason Kraft Foods added Red 40 artificial color to their Wheat Thins Ranch, otherwise healthy snack. This time I would like to recommend Wheat Thins Multigrain snacks which contain 17 grams of whole grain per 31 g serving. Nutritionists recommend eating 3 or more servings of whole grain foods per day.

Good news is that Wheat Thins Multigrain come with no hostile chemicals in it (no red segments in the Dye Diet diagram). Hence, what you get is zero health risk of DDFI = 0/49 = 0 and excellent nutritional value: DDNF = 49/11 ~ 4.4 brought by 14 nutritious food additives (green segments) including 7 whole grain ingredients.

There are no food additives to avoid in Wheat Thins Multigrain but you should know that these snacks are HIGH in SODIUM supplying 0.2 g of table salt with every 15 pieces serving of the total fourteen. Salt consumption may contribute into high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Bottom line. You can safely enjoy eating Wheat Thins Multigrain in moderation. Control your sodium and caloric intake: two servings of the snack will make you feel satiated. That’s what I felt after trying Wheat Thins Multigrain snack.

    Do NOT try to manage to finish the whole box because the whole box has 112% daily value sodium. However: If DDNF > 5 it should be Unbelievable.

    I am making my own whole grain crackers. It will have 13 different whole grains, 6 seeds, and 5 nuts. It is made with whole grain wheat flour and unbleached enriched flour. It is also made with a blend of sweeteners (sugar, honey, molasses), a little salt (just a pinch), soy lecithin, onion and garlic powders, and olive oil. It comes in 6 flavors and shapes: Original (circle), Cracked Pepper and Onion (flower), Rosemary Olive Oil (square), Garlic Herb (hexagon), Italian Five Cheese (triangle), Cream Cheese with Chives (octagon). I estimate that the DDNF of the new product is 5-7.
