    Hi Jack,

    I would like your opinion on whether this product (vegan paté) is healthy to eat:

    The website here does not include the ingredients but if memory serves, the main ingredients are sunflower seeds, soy sauce and sodium chloride (about 300 mg per 1/4 package). No cholesterol and no trans fats in this. I assume the 7 g of unsaturated fat is largely coming from the sunflower seeds (so: omega-6’s and omega-9’s).

    Hi Dan,


    It seems fine to me. Of course, everything you eat shouldn’t have 300 mg per serving of sodium, but I look at an entire day’s worth of sodium more than an individual food’s to see if I’m keeping it low enough.
