10 cal fruit jelly one of the snack lowest in sugar and calories, also suitable for vegetarian

One of the first snack alternative I usually discuss with patients is this one:

The low sugar Jelly



WHY?


  • Suitable for vegetarian, which means is suitable for lot of different dietary choices that could be due to religion or ethic reasons, but I would recommend to always double check the label to confirm this.

  • Flexible to mix with other products like yogurt or even ice cream, to still have something that you like but with a considerable reduced amount of sugars and calories

  • Easy to transport as a snack when you are out to avoid a high in calories snacks from the shop



  •  Doesn't require any preparation at all




WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE:

There are different brands let's see the differences:


  1. Hartley's 10 cal jelly:
Calories: between 5 and 10 calories depending on the flavour

Fat:  0.1 gr

Protein: 0.1 gr

Flavours:

Extra tip: just pay attention to not confuse with the 50 calories or over made by the same brand 




    2.  Asda low cal jelly:
