Dietitian's Top Pick: Moni's Light Dressing



We, at Market Street, are so excited to be carrying Moni's Light Vinagrette Dressing in our stores. And we, dietitians, are excited that with its NuVal score, it made our Dietitian's Top Pick in the salad dressing category. You might look at that NuVal score of 14 and think "that doesn't seem like a very high score!" If you were looking at the whole store and comparing all items, no, it wouldn't be. However don't forget that NuVal is best used to Trade Up within categories. You wouldn't put peanut butter on your house salad so it wouldn't be fair to compare salad dressing with peanut butter. That said, a NuVal score of 14 on the salad dressing aisle is an A+.
