ke ke ketogenic diet is popular. it's really about reading food labels. this you would think multigrain, that's got to be good for me. when you really look at the label, just because something says it's multigrain doesn't mean it's high in fiber. in this particular product, you know, again, one gram of fiber. and if you look at the number one ingredient, it's enriched wheat flour. so it's not really 100% whole grain. >> that one broke my heart a little bit. it's so easy to snack. >> look for 100% whole grain on your food labels. >> okay. let's move on to some of the other products as well. i think the packaging always makes you feel like oh, this is good for me. a lot of the green makes you feel eco conscious and healthy. >> take a look at -- and i'm not picking on any particular brand, because there is many of them. but these premade smoothies, juices that you can buy now. this is really kind of a glorified apple juice. but it certainly looks like there is blueberries and
bananas. yes, there is a small percentage. but when you look at the food label, it's the juice from 3 1/2 apples. you get a ton of natural sugar, but nonetheless, all the fiber that's in your whole grain fruits and vegetables, you're missing out on because it's been juiced. >> i always wonder about that. how much sugar should we be consuming even natural sugar like this? orange juice someone of my favorites. >> absolutely. the recommendations for sugar intake -- it depends on who you ask, but the dietary guidelines suggest we shouldn't be getting more than 10% of our calories from added sugars, that's about 12 teaspoons a day. the american heart association recommends six teaspoons for women, nine for men. this type of foods you're eating you're already getting your daily amount in one particular food. fruited yogurt, this has add sugar. i think it has four to five teaspoons of sugar alone. >> teaspoons.
oh, i should have a cupcake instead. just kidding. real quickly, let's talk about this ghee here. you mentioned keto. it's so popular. it seems to be the it diet now. why is this problematic for some people? >> well, the ketogenic diet, paleo puts a lot of emphasis on fat intake to help burn body fat and it's supposed to be the latest greatest in weight loss. the science is not quite there yet. but ghee is actually just clarified butter. and when they make this, they remove the milk solids and the water and concentrate the dairy fat. so for a tablespoon of butt worry be 100 calories, this is going to be maybe 140 calories and you have more saturated fat. >> nutritionist pamela riggs with marin general hospital. thank you so much. lots of great information there. >> thank you for having me. appreciate it. >> dan, send it back to you. >> i don't know if this counts as nutrition, you can get jelly
