Flashback Friday: What Are the Healthiest Foods?

The following video is brought to you courtesy of the NutritionFacts.org YouTube Channel. Click the video below to watch it now.

Based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which foods best supply shortfall nutrients while avoiding disease-promoting components?

This is part of our Flashback Friday series, and originally aired in 2015.

How low should one try to push their intake of some of the food components to avoid? See Trans Fat, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol: Tolerable Upper Intake of Zero (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/trans-fat-saturated-fat-and-cholesterol-tolerable-upper-intake-of-zero/), How Much Added Sugar Is Too Much? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-much-added-sugar-is-too-much/), and, for sodium, High Blood Pressure May Be a Choice (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/high-blood-pressure-may-be-a-choice/). Surprised that trans fats weren’t limited to partially hydrogenated junk? Check out Trans Fat in Meat and Dairy (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/trans-fat-in-meat-and-dairy/).
