How many times you want to buy certain product but you aren’t sure if its healthy or not. So here is a few guidelines of how to do it.
First of all you have to read the ingredients. Forget about checking the calories. Check the ingredients first and THEN the calories! So lets analyse those tea biscuits in the first picture:
Ingredients: Wheat flour, Vegtetable oil, Wholemeal wheat Flour, Sugar, Sugar syrup, Raising agents, Salt, Dried Skimmed milk.
So ingredients are written from highest to lowest content. So for example if in the first 3 ingredient your product have sugar, flour and vegetable oil is not good. In this case ALL our ingredients are flour and sugar! ridiculous you would put this in your body if you are trying to lose weight!
Then after this is no point to keep checking the calories but lets do it:
Calories per biscuit: (70)
So 70 calories is low BUT being realistic you don’t eat only one biscuit. But after checking calories you have to analyse the fats, proteins, carbs, sugar and fibre.
When you buy bread or any other product you have to make sure that the grams of fibre are higher than the grams of sugar.
At least 5g of fiber makes a product high in nutrition for you. Is just a guideline which applies to most of the products we consume. But the best products are the ones which doesn’t have any labels: fruit and veg for example
