Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,
Would you happen to know how I could get a hold of the nutritional information for some of the Provident Living food? My mother sent me a large plastic bag of dehydrated refried beans with instructions written on the bag, but I'm curious about how many calories and how much protein they have.
Thanks.

A: Dear C of E,

If the information's not on the package, and it's not available online (I didn't find it), I'd recommend going to a general nutrition website for information. My favorite one is nutritiondata.com. They may not have exactly the same types of food (e.g., no dehydrated refried beans), but their information on canned refried beans indicates that it's very high in protein, as well as being a good source of Vitamin C and dietary fiber.
