View Full Version : deceiving protein amount

02-26-2002, 12:13 AM
hello all, I couldn't beleive it, tonight I pulled these progies out of the freezer and taking a quick look at the nutritional facts and these dam things had 20g of protein for just 4 perogies (the perogies were the size of an OK sign with your index and thunb finger). can u beleive this! these are progies, not tuna! tuna has like 28g of protein and I could eat like 16 of these things no prob for, sh*t, like 80g of protein. there just cheap safeway bacon and cheese perogies for like $2 a big bag full. anyone have insight to this.

what the hell's a progie?

20g seems reasonable as they are stuffed with cheese right?

If that's the case, you should also check the fat content and carb content as they are likely to be quite high as well.

ya hermants, theres like 25g of carbs and only 3g of fat per four perogies (and for those who dont know what a perogy is, there frozen little pockets of dough with potato and cheese in them). so maybe I shouldnt be eating them too much. Im going to stick with tuna.

They sound tasty . . . Where'd you get 'em ?

20g of protein with 25g of carbs and 3g of fat isn't that bad at all.

Pretty balanced IMO. I would've expected the carbs to be higher since they're basically stuffed Pasta.

yeah but thats for 4 perogies.. the average serving probably consists of at least 16+!

But as a percentage of calories, 20g/25g/3g is 39%/48%/13% which is not too bad.

I still doubt it though, seems like they would be 20g protein for four perogies but the fat and carb figures look more like what they would be per perogie.

hemants, Im going to get the bag right now... Potato and Bacon perogies, low in fat (safeway brand name); per 113g serving (4 perogies)

205 calories, 20g of protein, 3g of fat, 25g of carbs.

pretty sweet find, eh.

I use the Safeway brand but I'm getting sick of them.

Cool, I'll for those next time.

D'oh, I don't think there are Safeways in Ontario. If anyone finds something similar in an Ontartio supermarket, let me know, ie Costco, Loeb, Loblaws etc.
