  • What makes Shileo different from other industrially processed foods?
  • Many food companies try to sell their products as "light", "non-fat" and "no added sugar". "Light" simply indicates that it's less heavy than the regular recipe (yet still unhealthy), "no fat" usually means that sugar is added to increase the flavoring, and "no added sugar" could mean that other artificial ingredients are added in order to compensate. We believe food should be light as a rule, and not only reduced in unhealthy ingredients. You shouldn't feel sleepy or hungry after a meal, especially when you're trying to lose weight.

  • Our meals contain between 0.07 and 0.315g of protein per 100g. Please check each individual product page to see the exact value.
