I would first start with a comparison to the info on the food label of the artichokes. How much fat and sodium is in the complete can. The measure the amount of fat that you drain off. This draining will probably remove about 40% of the sodium too.
I am trying to raise the health-o-meter on a recipe that uses marinated artichokes. I rinse and drain but I dont know if the calculations on the spark database include the fat and salt or consider the user has already drained and rinsed.
It seems like 20g of fat in a 6 oz jar of artichokes that are drained and rinsed is high. If it is truly that high, I will have to modify my recipe.
