Nutritional Information

A note from Bolay:

At this time we are in the process of getting the government required nutritional value. This does take a very long time. However we do not believe in the restricted and limited information the government makes chain restaurants do. They only ask for macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins, fat) and a limited amount of vitamins. We have selected the most nutrient dense foods as you will be able to see below. Kale, Spinach, Broccoli, Squash, Cauliflower, Mushrooms, Tomatoes are the superstars of nutritional excellence. Each providing hundreds of phytonutrient, each color indicating a different composition of antioxidants and inflammation inhibitors. It is now believed that there are over 10.000 phytonutrients, it is therefore entirely impossible to list the estimated 800 nutrients kale may have or the hundreds of phytochemicals you will find in brussels sprouts. We offer by far the best selection of micronutrients from any restaurant around. Please see the nutrient density chart below or one you may find suitable from the internet. Beyond just offering these nutritional powerhouses we also encourage everybody to load up on these ingredients as they are served first. Even Paleo (meat) eaters opt for more plant based foods in our Concept. We thank you for your patience while we continue to work with industry professionals to get all the facts that you need to know.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to us again and we look forward to seeing you at Bolay soon!

Sincerely,

The Bolay Team and Chef Martin Oswald

Nutrient Scoring Method*
To determine the ANDI scores, an equal-calorie serving of each food was evaluated. The following nutrients were included in the evaluation: fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, zinc, copper, manganese, selenium, vitamin A, beta carotene, alpha carotene, lycopene, lutein and zeaxanthin, vitamin E, vitamin C, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12, choline, vitamin K, phytosterols, glucosinolates, angiogenesis inhibitors, organosulfides, aromatase inhibitors, resistant starch, resveratrol plus ORAC score. ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a measure of the antioxidant or radical scavenging capacity of a food. For consistency, nutrient quantities were converted from their typical measurement conventions (mg, mcg, IU) to a percentage of their Dietary Reference Intake (DRI). For nutrients that have no DRI, goals were established based on available research and current understanding of the benefits of these factors. To make it easier to compare foods, the raw point totals were converted (multiplied by the same number) so that the highest ranking foods (leafy green vegetables) received a score of 1000, and the other foods received lower scores accordingly.
