Extra Lean Pork Sausages - Be Good To Yourself

Sausages are a British favourite, but many of them should come with a health warning. With large amounts of fat, they’re certainly not the lowest calorie of food choices. If you’re trying to lower your fat intake or keep the calories down, you can find a few good reduced fat choices which don’t compromise on taste.

Sainsbury’s Be Good To Yourself reduced fat Extra Lean Pork Sausages have just 74 calories each and 2.7g of fat. These are thick sausages and not just low in calories because they're half the size of regular sausages.

They can be found in the freezer section and come in bags of 20. Frozen sausages are often overlooked but they can work out significantly cheaper than buying them in smaller packets.

You can cook them straight from frozen, either in the oven, grill or frying pan. You don’t need any oil to fry them, but due to the lack of fat in the sausages, it can take a bit longer to cook as you should cook them on a lower heat to keep them from sticking or burning.

They’re made from British pork which makes up (63%) of the sausage.
Nutritional Information: Per sausage: 74 calories, 7.1g protein, 5.4g carbohydrates, 0g sugars, 2.7g fat (5.8g per 100g), 1.0g saturates, 0.9g fibre, 0.68g salt. 2 ProPoints per sausage as calculated by Sainsbury’s for informational purposes only.
