Don’t know about you, but lately we’ve been hearing a lot about how restaurants and frozen meal companies are saying one thing on their nutritionals, and serving up a whole other ball game.
Check out any one of these articles to see what we’re talking about:
- “The Washington Post”: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/checkup/2010/01/calorie_listings_often_wrong.html
- “New York Times”: http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2010/01/08/health/AP-US-FEA-Food-Incorrect-Calories.html?scp=1&sq=incorrect%20nutrition%20information&st=cse
- “The Boston Globe”: http://www.boston.com/business/articles/2010/01/08/counting_calories_you_cant_always_rely_on_frozen_food_labels/
San Diego’s CBS affiliate ran a story this month about the issue, and the reporter gave us props for weighing all of our ingredients so the dishes are consistent in flavor and the nutritional information is correct. The reporter also talks about our menu, which features 16 main bowls with 400 calories or less.
We provide our nutritional information in our restaurants and on our Web site. Something else we do that our guests tell us is helpful is provide recommendations if you are looking for a certain type of food. For instance if you are watching calories or sodium or looking for something vegetarian, we offer menu suggestions. You can check out this handy dandy nutrition guide in the Nutrition section of our blog.
Let us reassure you that when you’re eating at Noodles, you are what you eat.
