PCC Nutritional Information Now Available

Consider the food you eat every day: where it comes from, how it’s packaged, what exactly is in each ingredient. Analyzing this can be more difficult than you think. Each item of food has specific calories, carbohydrates, fats, sugars, protein, and other nutrients that makes it unique. When paired together, these ingredients make a meal with a complex nutritional composition.

But really – who thinks about that when they’re eating lunch?

In case you are wondering…these are our delicious Banh Mi style sandwiches.

In today’s world, much of the guesswork has been taken out of nutrition. With the help of technology and a little background in nutrition, the nutritional makeup of your meals can be calculated in a matter of minutes. At the Philadelphia Catering Company, we did just that by developing a program that analyzes each of our menu items and produces an exact nutritional summary of the meal as a whole.

Detailed nutrition facts are easily accessible on our website

Here’s how we do it: each ingredient for a given dish is chosen from a database, until all the ingredients for that dish have been identified. Through formulas, and a little bit of magic, the final summary is given based on the nutrient makeup of each ingredient. In addition to nutrition facts, we also include allergen information. This includes everything from vegan, to gluten free, to egg free and more.

In a world where portions and waistlines are growing, knowing what you’re putting in your body is more vital than ever. That’s why we are in the process of uploading the nutrition facts and allergen information for our entire menu up on our site. In this easy to navigate and will be categorized by each menu grouping.

Next time you make an order, be sure to check the nutritional profile of your meal, if anything to appreciate how technology and science has allowed us to know that much more about what we’re putting into our bodies.
