In what Celebrity Cruises says is another “culinary first,” they have partnered with SPE Certified to “expand its healthy dining options with scientifically-grounded, third-party validation of their merits.”
SPE (Latin for Sanitas Per Escam, or “Health Through Food”) Certified is a certification and consulting program aimed at enhancing nutrition without compromising taste. Using criteria such as seasonality, sourcing, sustainability and ideal portion size, every dish they certify is low in salt and saturated fats and meet other nutritional standards.
SPE Certified will be used to certify more than 60 dishes in Celebrity Cruises’ main restaurants, such as Salmon Tartare with Celery Root Puree, Trout Roe Caviar and Roasted Pork Loin with Smoky Red Cabbage. Guests will note SPE-certified dishes by way of the “squiggly red insignia” on Celebrity Reflection beginning April 6. They note selections will be available across the entire fleet by the end of the year.
