I have mentioned several times that I truly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is essential to have a good breakfast before leaving the house.
Little man really likes hazelnut chocolate spread, whether it is on toast, crumpets or pancakes. Until I was introduced to JimJams, I must confess that I had no idea how much sugar there was in other hazelnut chocolate spreads.
Just like me, JimJams co-founder, Kellie Bath, was also “shocked at the amount of sugar found in most chocolate spreads”, so her mission was to create an even more delicious tasting spread, with a fraction of sugar.
I just checked a jar in the cupboard and found that there are 57g of sugar per 100g of chocolate spread, which means that shockingly over half of the spread is just sugar. At this rate, I might as well let little man sprinkle sugar on toast next time!
I believe we should have a balanced diet, with plenty of fruit and vegetables and treats in moderation. Whenever possible, we switch to products that have no added sugar and are lower in sugar.
I was pleased to find out that JimJams has 83% less sugar than other chocolate spreads, surprisingly less than 9g per 100g. The whole family tried JimJams and we really enjoyed the creamy consistency and pleasantly sweet flavour.
Instead of sugar, JimJams is made with maltitol, a sweetener derived from a natural source. Maltitol is kinder on teeth, contains fewer calories than sugar and, as a result, it doesn’t affect our blood glucose levels like sugar and it is diabetic friendly.
As it tastes so lovely, I wasn’t surprised to find out that JimJams has won Great Taste Awards and it has been also approved by The British Dental Health Foundation as it is officially kinder to teeth.
Where would you spread JimJams? Toast, crumpets or pancakes?
