The really good and seriously nerdy stuff!

FAQ to be asked - What´s in it for me?!

Protein

Protein 15% of RDI* at 20g Ohpops! snack calculated for a person at 60kg.

Protein are fundamental structural and functional elements within every call of the body and are involved in a wide range of metabolic interactions. All cells and tissues contain protein, therefore protein is essential for growth and repair and the maintenance of good health. *Protein is essential for growth and repair of the body and maintenance of good health. *Protein also provides energy; 1g. provides 17KJ (4kcal) *The reference nutritient intake (RNI) is set at 0.75g of protein pr. kg bodyweight pr. day for adults. *The amount of protein we need changes during a lifetime. *Different foods contain different amounts and different combinations of amino acids (the building blocks of proteins). Protein from animal sources (e.g Meat, fish, eggs and dairy products) contains the full range of essential amino acids needed by the body. However, vegans and vegetarians can get all the amino acids they need by combining different plant sources of protein, e.g pulses and cereals. (Source: British Nutrition Foundation.)

Amino acid

Amino acid

Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. There are about 20 different amino acids commonly found in the plant and animal proteins. For adults, 8 of these, have to be provided in the diet and are therefore defined as 'essential' or 'indispensable' amino acids. These are: Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine, Threonine, methionine, Phenlalanine, tryptophan, Lysine. In childen, arginine, histidine, cysteine, glycine, tyrosine, glutamine and proline are also considered to be essential (Indispensable) amino acids, because children are unable to make enough to meet their needs. These are referred to as 'conditionally' essential. There may also be certain disease states during adult life when a particular amino acid becomes conditionally essential.

Fullness factor TM

Fullness factor TM

General Observations Foods that contain large amounts of fat, sugar, and/or starch have low Fullness Factors, and are much easier to overeat. Foods that contain large amounts of water, dietary fiber, and/or protein have the highest Fullness Factors. These high-FF foods, which include most vegetables, fruits, and lean meats, do a better job of satisfying your hunger. Values of the Fullness Factor range from 0 to 5, with the Fullness Factor for white bread being 1.8. That means that for servings of equal Calories, those foods with FF's above 1.8 are more likely to fill you up than white bread, and foods with FF's below 1.8 are less likely to fill you up than white bread. Ohpops! Wasabi-style Fullness factor 3,50
