USDA Plate Program

As your family's partner in good nutrition, Pulmuone Foods USA, Inc. proudly recommends adoption of USDA's Choose My Plate diet program which replaced the USDA Food Pyramid program in June, 2011. Knowing and adopting the Choose My Plate program is one important step in a healthier LOHAS (lifestyle of health and sustainability) behavioral change. Key recommendations from the Choose My Plate program include balancing calories, increasing the consumption of certain foods and decreasing the intake of others. We recommend following these rules to be a a healthier and happier you:

Balancing Calories

  • Enjoy your food, but eat less.
  • Avoid oversized portions.

Foods to Increase

  • Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
  • Make at least half your grains whole grains.
  • Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk.

Foods to Reduce

  • Compare sodium in foods like soup, bread, and frozen meals and choose the foods with lower numbers.
  • Drink water instead of sugary drinks

The Choose My Plate program divides the menu into five major food groups including fruits, grains, vegetables, protein and dairy.

Grains: Make at least half your grains whole grains: entire grain kernel (bran, germ, whole-wheat flour, cracked wheat, oatmeal, whole cornmeal, brown rice), dietary fiber, iron, vitamin Bs

Veggies: Make half your plate fruits and vegetables dark green veges, red & orange veges, Beans & Peas, Starchy veggies (green peas, lima beans), Other veggies (bean sprouts, green beans)

Fruits: Make half your plate fruits and vegetables any fruits & 100% fruit juices

Dairy: Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk fluid milk products & made from milk, except little or no Ca containing product (cream cheese, butter etc) + Calcium-fortified soymilk (soy beverage)

Protein: meat, poultry, seafood, beans and peas, eggs, processed soy products, nuts, and seeds

Eating foods low in saturated fat and cholesterol are important components to a healthy lifestyle. Soyfoods contain no cholesterol, protect against heart disease, and taste great. Exciting new studies indicate that soyfoods show promise for boosting mental ability, and protecting against bone loss and some types of cancer.

If you have milk allergies or lactose intolerance, soymilk, soy cheese, soy yogurt, and dairy free frozen desserts offer delicious ways to include the essential nutrients of calcium, vitamin A, and vitamin D in your healthy diet. The bountiful nutrient content of great-tasting soyfoods makes it easy to gain health naturally.
