Steve disagrees with the score for MorningStar Farms Original Chik'n Tenders (7 ea).
Steve feels that the score should be D (18-26).
The reason is: I am in now way a fan of this class of highly processed food-like products. But I would not ding them for containing 1 gram of added sugar

Many factors go into determining a product’s score; this product does not receive a D- solely because of added sugar. First, it is very high in sodium per serving, which our nutrition department pays close attention to due to the high sodium intake of the American population and its effect on health. Secondly, the product contains controversial ingredients such as Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten and Yeast Extract (also known as MSG.) Thirdly, the product does not provide much vitamin content.

Actually, for this product group, the mere presence of “added sugars” do not impact the score at all. We bring them to your attention because we find that some members want to know if they are consuming excess sugars, training their palate towards sweeter foods, taking in extra calories, etc.

As always, thanks for contacting us! DO YOU AGREE? Feel free to post your opinion on this product and the score below!
