Product Talk: Ice cream, Frozen Yogurt and Sorbet, Oh My!

Ice creams and cold treats become a staple item in most southern freezers in the hot summer. When kids are running in from splashing around in the pool and shooting hoops outside they want a cold treat to cool them down.

 There are many frozen treats on the market today; you can choose from a variety of ice creams, frozen yogurts, sorbet and other frozen items. With such a vast variety, choosing a nutritious treat can become difficult.

The NuVal scores for these treats can be as low as 1, all the way to a perfect score of 100. Even though you can find high scoring products, most frozen treats never exceed a score of a 40. The nutrients that have the greatest influence on scores in this category are calories, saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol and added sugars.  

Next time you’re looking for a frozen treat try to find a product that is higher than the average score of a 17.

Family Matters: Making a Better Burger

We are approaching the summer months.  Summer is grilling time, and grilling time means lots of juicy burgers! Here are tips for making yours the best ever:

  • Burgers need a little fat to stay juicy. Try for 80 to 90% lean meat.
  • Ground meat stays refrigerated for 2 to 3 days safely.
  • Always wash surfaces, hands and utensils that come into contact with raw meat. Don’t allow uncooked burgers to stand at room temperature more than 1 hour.
  • Don’t over mix when combining meat with other ingredients—this creates dry, tough burgers.
  • Prevent sticking by making sure the grill is plenty hot before putting the burgers on. And spray the burger sides with nonstick spray before placing on the grill.
  • Never flatten burgers as they cook. This squeezes out juices.
  • Use a long-handled spatula with a heatproof handle to flip patties.
  • Health experts recommend a well-done burger as the only safe burger.
