Jam is a popular spread which is enjoyed by many people and it's especially delicious when spread onto hot toast. While jam might contain a lot of fruit, this is usually equaled by the sugar content. So jam will never be a low calorie food. However, you can save quite a few calories by choosing low sugar or reduced sugar jams.
Sainsbury’s Reduced Sugar strawberry jam is packed with strawberries and has an easy to spread consistency. It has 183 calories and 39.9g of sugar per 100g compared with 254 calories and 48.5g of sugar per 100g for Sainsbury’s regular strawberry jam. So using the reduced sugar version will save you 16 calories per tablespoon.
Found in most Sainsbury’s stores.
