Ready-Made Pizza a Saturated Fat Bomb

      September 15, 2015 13:01

      Two slices of ready-made pizza are the equivalent of 89 percent of a person's daily allowance of saturated fat, a survey suggests.

      The Korea Consumer Agency said on Monday its survey of 14 brand pizzas showed that two slices or 300 g contain 13.36 g of saturated fat and 30 g of trans fat, 89.1 percent and 58.8 percent of the recommended daily intakes.

      They also contain 1,311,56 mg of sodium, 65.5 percent of the recommended daily amount of 2,000 mg.

      Excess salt, saturated fat and trans fat are associated with increased diabetes and high blood pressure risks.
