Moreover, commercial ranch dressings like Hidden Valley’s The Original Ranch contain as much as 22 grams of fat along with disturbing additives like MSG for enhanced flavor and a whopping 260 milligrams of sodium. If you have the inner strength, just say no to the creamy, tangy allure of this buttermilk siren.
The sodium in ranch dressing can cause water retention. A veggie platter just isn’t complete without a dish of creamy ranch dressing. However, there are a lot of calories in most ranch dressings, as well as fat, sodium and sometimes added sugar.
Despite this, only 2.7 g of the fat in ranch dressing comes from saturated fat. The saturated fat in this dressing is only a small portion of the 15 g suggested limit.
If the ranch dressing on your lunch salad has 140 calories, that could be more than 10 percent of your daily calorie allotment — just in your dressing. Some of the fat in ranch dressing is saturated fat.
