Low fat rice or chocolate pudding, which one to choose, comparison made with different brands

Pudding could be a good snack alternative if we pay attention on the amount of calories sugars and fats that can change enourmously from one brand to another

So here is a selection of which one to choose:



Tesco low fat rice pudding per 100 gr:


76 calories  

0.8  gr of fat

14.4  gr carbs (7 gr of sugars)




Alpro smooth chocolate per 100 gr:



83 calories  

1.9 gr of fat

13 gr carbs (10.5 gr of sugars)



Muller light chocolate fix per 100 gr:


95  calories  

2.7 gr of fat

15 gr carbs (9.6 gr of sugars)




Muller low fat rice pudding per 100 gr:

101 calories  

2.6 gr of fat

16.1 gr carbs (10 gr of sugars)

Sugar free biscuits, when to choose this one and nutritional value

Sometimes Sugar free products can be very expansive or just not tasty.


I came across this product which is easy to find in almost every grocery, even in Poundland and the taste is like the classic digestive but with an amount of sugar that is very low
(less than half a gram for 100gr of product):



Maria sugar free biscuits from Gullon per 100 gr:

Calories: 412 
I would recommend a portion of 50gr or less (3 or 4 biscuits)

Fibre: 4.5 gr

Protein: 7 gr 

Fats: 11 gr

Salt: 1gr


The amount of fat could be high, but if combined with some low fat product like semi skimmed milk or light yogurt, it could balanced to obtain a low caloric intake overall, especially if you want to reduce your sugar intake.

Jordan's Skinny Syrup zero calories, alternative to sugar or honey or sweetener

We already discussed about the amount of calories in each spoon of sugar or honey
and we already discussed the natural alterantives to reduce the intake of artificial sweetener

If you would like to read these two articles here the links:

Now if all of the above is not working because of the taste, as a last resort you could try this syrup

To be honest having the natural sweetener like stevia would be the best solution but if you can't get use to the taste, having a zero sugar and zero calories alternatives is still better than having white sugar, especially if you are Diabetic, pre-diabetic or Obese.




Jordan's skinny syrup has:

Zero Calories

Zero Sugars

Vanilla 

Salted Caramel

Toffee

Brown sugar 




Where to find it:
