Silver Spoon Light Granulated Sugar

Going on a diet means cutting down on calories. But, if you like sugar in your drinks and on your cereal, this can add up to lots of extra and unwanted calories throughout the day. Although there are all manner of sugar substitutes on the supermarket shelves, it’s not always easy finding the right one for you.

Silver Spoon Light is a granulated sugar which looks and tastes just like sugar only it has less calories per teaspoon. This is ideal for those who like the texture of real sugar but would prefer fewer calories. You use it in exactly the same way as you do regular sugar except each teaspoon has 11 calories instead of the 16 calories of white granulated sugar.

This gives you a saving of 5 calories per teaspoon. So, for example, if you like two teaspoons of sugar in your tea and coffee and two on your cereal and you drink five hot drinks each day, you’d be saving 60 calories a day or 300 calories per week.
Silver Spoon Light granulated sugar is available in pack sizes 750g and 375g from Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and The Coop.
