> Serving size: Large
> Calories: 1,160
> Total amount of sugar: 183 g
> Total amount of fat: 39 g
> Total amount sodium: 330 mg

> Serving size: 1 platter
> Calories: 810
> Total amount of sugar: 6 g
> Total amount of fat: 54 g

Just one platter provides about half the calories you need a day, especially if you’re a physically active person, and more than what the American Heart Association recommends for your daily sodium intake — 1,500 mg.
