The commitment is based on passing on the consumer all the information in a transparent and understandable way so that the consumer can choose the products that fit best to his needs.
The compulsory nutritional information must include in this order: energy value, fats, saturated fats, carbohydrates, sugars, proteins and salt. This information can be complemented with: monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, polyalcohols, starch, fiber, vitamins and minerals. The information must be expressed as per 100g. Additionally, it can be also expressed per serving, indicating the number of servings per pack and the number of biscuits per serving.
Arluy is committed to creating a healthy lifestyle, based on good nutrition and daily exercise
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), six of the seven major health determinants are related to physical activity and diet. These two activities are present throughout the life of every person and, as they are modifiable, how they are conducted will depend, on a large scale, on our future well-being.
Arluy is a pioneer in the substitution of animal fats for vegetable fats. In addition by replacing palm oil with healthier options such as high oleic sunflower oil, the Flora range or the B Live range, even if this is more expensive presents very important nutritional differences compared to other oils. High oleic sunflower oil is an oil with characteristics similar to olive oil. The main difference lies in the proportion of oleic acid. The properties of oleic acid concern the beneficial action with regard to our blood vessels and our heart because they increase the so-called “positive cholesterol” (HDL-c) of the blood.

A balanced breakfast is essential for school-age children as it contributes to a more harmonious calories distribution throughout the day and also brings many nutrients that are important during school time, significant growth time and development.
Breakfast brings you the energy you need to face a new day. Not having breakfast is associated with decreased physical activity. Breakfast should account for between 20% and 25% of the calories consumed throughout the day. To be balanced, the following food groups must be represented: dairy products (milk, yogurt, etc.), fruits and cereals (bread, toast, cereals, biscuits, etc.). Apart from these, other foods can also be included, such as derivatives of meat and sweet products, but in moderate quantities.
