A 200g can of Weight Watchers from Heinz Baked Beans has 4 ProPoints and 146 calories. They also count towards one of your ‘five a day’. However, there isn’t a great deal of difference in nutritional make up between Weight Watchers Baked Beans and regular Heinz Baked Beans.
Baked beans in tomato sauce are generally healthy, low in fat and a good source of protein, with the main distinctions between most brands coming down to the flavourings used and the amount of sugar or salt in the ingredients.
Weight Watchers from Heinz baked beans have slightly fewer calories and less sugar than regular Heinz baked beans, with 73 calories and 3.5g of sugar compared with 79 calories and 5g of sugar per 100g respectively. Fibre, protein, fat and salt content are the same.
Weight Watchers baked beans contain 52% beans and 26% tomatoes whereas regular Heinz beans have 51% beans and 34% tomatoes.
The Weight Watchers baked beans sauce is a little thinner and paler in colour and perhaps a bit sweeter than regular baked beans and this may be because they also contain the sweetener acesulfame potassium as well as sugar.
Weight Watchers from Heinz Baked Beans are available in 200g or 415g sized cans.
