Cumberland Sausages Sainsbury Be Good to Yourself

The majority of sausages are loaded with fat and calories which means they’re off the menu for people watching their weight or trying to lower their cholesterol, for example.

However, sausages remain a firm favourite among the British population and fortunately there are a few brands around which are low in fat and calories while managing to taste pretty good too.

Sainsbury’s Cumberland Sausages from the Be Good To Yourself range are a perfect example of how to make a decent sausage that’s not going to clog up your arteries and pile on the pounds. They’re not skinny little sausages either, as shown below, and can hold their own against any of their fattier counterparts.

Be Good To Yourself Cumberland Sausages have a mere 72 calories each. They’re also low in fat with only 2.6g of fat per 100g of which 0.9g is from saturated fat (the fat to avoid to keep cholesterol down).

Compare that with Sainsbury’s outdoor bred Cumberland Pork Sausages which have a huge 20.6g of fat per 100g and twice as many calories with 144 per sausage.
