1 TRY SOMETHING AMAZING NUTRITIONAL GUIDE

2 KNOW WHAT YOU RE TUCKING INTO Debonairs Pizza is proud to announce the nutritional analysis of our menu. It was analysed by a SANAS (The South African National Accreditation System) Accredited laboratory, and we have reason to be proud! This is what we found ENERGY All energy required by the body must be supplied by food and beverage intake. Recommended energy intakes vary according to gender, age and activity. Total food energy intake should allow for healthy growth and development, the body's many functions and healthy physical activity. Carbohydrates, proteins and fats are all energy giving nutrients. Over half of our energy should come from carbohydrates. Our bodies also need protein and energy from fat to good health. GOOD TO KNOW The unit for measuring energy is a kilojoule (kj) or kilocalorie (kcal). High in Energy* choices. At Debonairs Pizza the following menu items are high in energy. All Hot Subs Cheese & Garlic Bread Mexican Fiesta - Halaal Meaty-Filla - Generic Meaty-Filla - Halaal Chicken & Mushroom Crammed-Crust Mixed Grill - Generic Crammed-Crust Mixed Grill - Halaal Something Meaty - Halaal Hawaiian - Generic Hawaiian - Halaal Margherita Tikka Chicken Four Seasons - Generic Four Seasons - Halaal Club - Generic Club - Halaal Triple-Decker Chicken - Generic Triple-Decker Chicken - Halaal Triple-Decker Meat - Generic Triple-Decker Meat - Halaal Cocktail Sausages - Halaal * At least 950kJ of protein per 100g of food.

3 CARBOHYDRATES Carbohydrates are our bodies preferred source of energy. All Debonairs Pizzas and Hot Subs contain carbohydrates. For a food to be high in carbohydrates it must have at least 13g of carbohydrates per 100g of food. DIETARY FIBRES Dietary fibre (also referred to as roughage), generally of plant origin, is an essential part of any diet. It adds bulk to foods, slows down your digestion and helps you feel nice and full. It also helps keep your tummy healthy and helps keep you regular. Foods high in fibre usually require a bit more chewing and contribute to satiation and promote dental health. All Debonairs Pizzas and most of the Hot Subs offer you a source of fibre*. Check it out if it has three (3) # or more grams of fibre for every 100g of food, it s a good source of fibre. GOOD TO KNOW Load your pizza or sub with more veggies and further boost the fibre content of your meal. PROTEIN Proteins are made up of amino acids and their function is to help build, maintain and repair the body tissues. Amino acids are the basic building blocks of enzymes, hormones, proteins, and body tissues. Food sources of proteins include meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk, cheese, yoghurt, soya, legumes (e.g. dried beans, split peas, lentils and chickpeas), seeds and nuts. Grain products and many vegetables also supply small amounts of protein. All protein is made up of amino acids. The body needs 22 amino acids of which 8 are essential, i.e. they cannot be manufactured by the body and need to be taken in through the diet. Protein quality depends on the amount of essential amino acids a food contains. Animal foods (e.g. fish, poultry, meat, egg, milk) are high quality proteins and contain all the essential amino acids; while all plant foods, except for soya, are incomplete proteins as they lack sufficient amounts of one or more of the essential amino acids. If two incomplete proteins are properly combined, called complementary proteins, they can make up a complete protein. GOOD TO KNOW For a food to be high in protein it must contain a minimum of 10g of protein for every 100g of food. At Debonairs Pizza our chicken strips, cocktail sausages and 99% of our subs and pizzas are all high* in protein. * At least 950kJ of protein per 100g of food.

5 TOTAL FAT Fat is a concentrated source of energy. Fat has various functions in the body. It: protects the body s organs and nerves from injury by holding them in position insulates and regulates the body tempretaure supplies the essential fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E, & K transports and absorbs fat-soluble vitamins delays the stomach emptying process adds to the taste and palatability of the diet There are different types of fats: (a) Polyunsaturated fat A beneficial fat that is found primarily in plant foods, such as nuts, seeds and leafy grees. (b) Monounsaturated fat A beneficial fat that is found primarily in plant foods. They are usually liquid at room temperature. Found in, e.g. olive oil, nuts, avocado and red meat. (c) Saturated fat A saturated fat is usually solid at room temperature. It is found mostly in foods from animals, such as fatty meat, poultry with the skin and full cream dairy products. It can increase your LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, which may increase your risk of heart disease. It is advisable to limit your intake of saturated fat. (d) Trans fat Trans fat have been associated with an increase in bad cholesterol and a simultaneous decrease in good cholesterol in the human body. Because of this, food manufacturers have worked to lower trans fats found in foods. It is advisable to limit your intake of trans fat. GOOD TO KNOW Debonairs Pizza aims keep its menu items free from trans fat. Less than 1g of trans fat per 100g of food.

6 Why that matters? Fats formed when food manufacturers add hydrogen atoms to unsaturated fats to make them more saturated, more solid, and shelf-stable (hydrogenated fats) raise your body s bad cholesterol and lower the good cholesterol. Cholesterol Cholesterol is a substance normally made by the body, but also found in foods from animal sources, like full cream dairy products. GOOD TO KNOW A high intake of saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol in the food you eat can raise your bad blood cholesterol. These Debonairs Pizza menu items are low* in cholesterol and contain less than 20mg of cholesterol for every 100g of food: Debonairs Hot Subs Debonairs Pizzas Chicken & Mushroom Hawaiian (Halaal) Sweet & Sour Vegetarian Tikka Chicken Four Seasons Vegetarian SODIUM Sodium is a mineral needed by the body to keep body fluids in balance. Sodium is found in table salt and in many processed foods. The recommendation is to limit salt to no more than 6g (heaped teaspoon of salt/day) or 2400mg sodium/day.

7 PORTION SIZE MATTERS Over the years, our perception of what constitutes a portion of food has been slowly increasing. The result of this is that we are eating more and more! GOOD TO KNOW Increasing portion size is one of the easiest ways that extra energy (kilojoules) sneaks into our diet because often we don t realise we are eating more than we should. Share with a friend or save the rest for later. SOUTH AFRICAN GUIDELINES FOR HEALTHY EATING 1. Enjoy a variety of foods. 2. Make starchy food part of most meals. 3. Fish, chicken, lean meat or eggs could be eaten daily. 4. Have milk, maas or yoghurt everyday. 5. Eat dry beans, split-peas, lentils and soya regularly. 6. Use salt and food high in salt sparingly. 7. Use fat sparingly; choose vegetable oils rather than hard fats. 8. Use sugar and food and drinks high in sugar sparingly. 10. Drink lots of clean, safe water. 11. Be active! *South African Food-based dietary guidelines for adults & children over the age of seven years REFERENCES Regulations and guidelines as published in R.146 of 1 March 2010 (Regulations relating to the labelling and advertising of foodstuffs published under the Foodstuffs, Cosmetics and Disinfectants Act, 1972 (Act 54 of 1972).
