Biscuit (Original vs Less Sweet)

When you are pushing a trolley in a market and pass through biscuit department, you might find a brand which offers a biscuit package but in 2 different types - Original and Less Sweet.

One of the example is "Chips more" by Kraft. According to the nutrition facts, it shows 2 pieces of original flavor chipsmore provide 110Kcal with 15.8g sugar (>3tsp) and 4.6g fat.  Whereas for less sweet. chipsmore provide 98Kcal with 6.5g sugar (>1tsp) and 4.3g fat. It show that less sweet product provide 50% lesser of sugar compare to its original. Thus, to prevent consuming much of sugar, less sweet should be a better choice compare its original.


I hope through more examples and advice, we as a consumer will choose food products wiser. TV ads maybe attractive, word of mouth maybe influential, but the true facts of the food won't lie.

  1. Xylitol is looking so good substitute for sugar. I hope it will be commercially replaced by sugar at some time in future so many carbohydrates related disease will be reduce by taking this step ..
