Many have reduced fat but extra sugar, while others have no sugar but are high in saturated fats or worse, hydrogenated fat. But biscuits such as these organic Wholewheat Digestives from Doves Farm, project a healthier image that can 'almost' make you feel virtuous when eating them.
Doves Farm Organic Wholewheat Digestives are made with English whole wheat flour and all ingredients are organic. They have a rustic, earthy look about them with a lovely crunchy, sweet flavour. The label on the front shows they have won a ‘Great Taste Gold 2011’ award.

Although they have a high sugar and saturated fat content, they do have one health advantage over many other biscuits. Thanks to the whole wheat used, they provide a good source of dietary fibre with 7.8g per 100g or 1g per biscuit. Each biscuit has 56 calories, so one or two would be fine as a snack within part of a balanced diet.
