Chocolate diet (cont)

In this post, there will be another 2 examples for chocolate products. The first one is a common biscuit found in hypermarket and second is a muffin from Kenny Rogers.

The famous chocolate biscuit is love by everyone especially during Chinese New Year or other celebrations. This sample shows that 7 pieces contains 13g of sugar which is equal to 2 ½ tsp of sugar. This sample is the smallest packaging from this brand that contains 2 small sachets in which each sachet supply 14 pieces.  Thus, imagine if you consume 1 small sachet which is equivalent to 14 pieces; you consume 280 Kcal, 4g saturated fat and 26g sugar (5tsp). 

As for chocolate muffin from Kenny Rogers, it is providing 225Kcal with 12.3g sugar (2 ½ tsp sugar) and 9.2g fat. Thus, a small chocolate muffin can serve you 15% of energy requirement in a day. If you take more than 2 pieces chocolate muffin  a day, you already take more than 30% energy uptake in a day which has yet included any main meal for that particular day. You can always access their website to get their meal nutrition facts.
