EWG Overall Score Breakdown

The product score is based on weighted scores for nutrition, ingredient and processing concerns. Generally, nutrition counts most, ingredient concerns next and degree of processing least. The weighted scores are added together to determine the final score. Read more about scores here.

Processing Concern Details

Level

Estimates how much the food has been processed. Considers many factors, chief among them, modification of individual ingredients from whole foods and number of artificial ingredients. For more information on processing concerns, read our full methodology.

Top findings positive Product has been classified as having low processing concerns

Products with low processing concerns generally have few artificial ingredients, more ingredients that are either whole foods or are minimally processed, and fewer ingredients overall.

EWG's Top Findings

Top findings negative This product is not certified organic [read more]

This product is not certified organic

Products bearing the USDA certified organic seal must contain at least 95 percent organic ingredient, and must be produced without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers and free of genetically engineered ingredients.

Top findings negative Contains ingredients that may contribute small amounts of unhealthy artificial trans fats: Soy Bean Oil [read more]

Contains ingredients that may contribute small ...

Both refined oils and fully hydrogenated oils contain small amounts of unhealthy artificial trans fats and contribute to the total intake of trans fat in the diet (Biofortis 2014). Artificial trans fats are generated in refined oils when they are processed at high temperatures from the crude oil into a bland, odorless, colorless oil (Greyt 1999). A 2012 study conducted by FDA scientists estimated that refined oil contributes an average 0.6 grams of trans fat a day (Doell 2012). The World Health Organization recommends limits on trans fat of less than 1 to 2 grams a day—in this context, it’s easy to see that 0.6 grams is not an insignificant contribution. In the case of fully hydrogenated oils, they should theoretically be free of trans fat, but since no hydrogenation process is 100 percent efficient, trans fats are often found in fully hydrogenated oils at low levels (FDA 2013). The United States Department of Agriculture National Nutrition Database has tested refined, partially hydrogenated and fully hydrogenated oils and found trans fats in all of them (USDA 2013). Textbooks for food scientists reveal that the mono and di-glycerides and other emulsifiers are often made from hydrogenated fats (Hasenhuettl and Hartel 2008) and at temperatures above 220°C (Sikorski and Kolakowka 2011). Emulsifiers produced from hydrogenated fats “contain measurable concentrations" of trans fats (Hasenhuettl and Hartel 2008). Unfortunately, due to lack of label disclosure and the trans fat labeling loophole, only the food scientists will ever know just how much trans fat these refined oils and emulsifiers are contributing to foods and the American diet.

EWG has not identified any artificial or industrial ingredients in this product.

Top findings positive Good source of naturally occurring vitamin A [read more]

Good source of naturally occurring vitamin A

Vitamin A is an essential nutrient that is naturally occurring in dairy, fish, eggs, fish and meat products and, in the form of vitamin A precursors, in orange and yellow vegetables such as carrots and pumpkin. Vitamin A is also frequently added for fortification of packaged food. EWG recommends children and pregnant women limit consumption of highly fortified foods to avoid overexposure since getting too much of certain forms of vitamin A can lead to health problems. Read EWG's report on getting the correct amount of vitamin A, zinc and niacin: http://www.ewg.org/research/how-much-is-too-much

Top findings negative Contains 27% of the Institute of Medicine's daily sodium (salt) recommendations based on adequate intake [read more]

Contains 27% of the Institute of Medicine's dai...

This product contains a high percentage of the Institute of Medicine's recommended adequate intake for sodium of 1500 mg a day (IOM 2005). This value is much lower than what the FDA requires be listed on food labels -- 2400 mg. Americans average 3,400 mg of sodium a day. Most of this sodium comes from processed foods where sodium is added to mask the lack of freshness by enhancing the flavor, texture or palatability and extending shelf-life (IOM 2010). Many of these uses are for the manufacturers benefit and not the consumer's health as excess sodium intake is linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease (IOM 2010).

Top findings positive Good source of naturally occurring iron [read more]

Good source of naturally occurring iron

Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that transfers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. Iron is also necessary for normal growth and development. Seafood, poultry and meat are good sources of well-absorbed heme iron. Absorption of iron from plant sources including beans, lentils and spinach can be increased by eating them with vitamin C-rich foods like lemon juice or tomato sauce.

Top findings negative Rice-based ingredients may contain arsenic [read more]

Rice-based ingredients may contain arsenic

Rice plant naturally takes up arsenic from the water in the soil. The concentration of arsenic in this product will depend on the amount of rice-based ingredient used. http://www.ewg.org/foodscores/content/arsenic-contamination-in-rice

Top findings positive Product has been classified as having low processing concerns

Ingredient List

From the Package

TOMATOES, SUGAR, RICE FLOUR, SOYBEAN OIL, SEA SALT, DEHYDRATED ONION, PEPPERS, DEHYDRATED GARLIC, VINEGAR, AND CITRIC ACID.

Other Information

Top findings neutral This product contains the following ingredient(s) that may be genetically engineered or derived from GE crops: Sugars, Soy Bean Oil, and Citric Acid [read more]

This product contains the following ingredient(...

Scientists have not determined whether GE food poses risks to human health. Still, consumers have many good reasons to avoid eating genetically engineered ingredients, including limited safety studies, the development of "superweeds" and increased pesticide use.
