which biscuits?

Post by falkor » Tue Aug 17, 2010 5:13 pm

From page 7 of today's "body & soul" in THE TIMES

If you're health conscious choose THESE biscuits! HEALTH: the TOP FIVE BISCUITSin the UK today
1 Garibaldis
19 calories, 0.5g fat per biscuit

A great little low fat biscuit with the advantage of having just a trace of salt and virtually no saturated fats
2 Rich Tea
38 calories, 1.3g fat per biscuit

A plain but functional biscuit with very little fat, 0.1g of salt and less than 2g of sugar
3 Jaffa cakes
46 calories, 1.0g fat per biscuit

Good for chocolate lovers who are watching the calories, jaffa cakes contain almost no salt but do have more than a teaspoon of sugar per biscuit
4 Ginger nuts
46 calories, 1.7g fat per biscuit

Said to be good for travel and morning sickness, one or two could help to settle a queasy tummy too
5 Digestives
70 calories, 3.2g fat per biscuit

Digestives still do pretty well on sugar and salt but by virtue of their size and weight you do get more calories per biscuit
if you're going to have a biscuit then one of the above are as healthy as you can get for sugar, fat or salt

but should we REALLY be bothered? which is your best biscuit?
