CLAIMS: Chocolate topped ‘ gluten and wheat-free’ biscuits.
EXPERT VERDICT: As well as being gluten-free, these are made with beet fibre, which is known to help keep bowel movements healthy. But the amount from one biscuit is probably negligible: even if you ate eight — just over 500 calories’ worth — you’d still get less than 4g of fibre, which is just over a third of the amount in a small bowl of bran-based cereal.
The calorie, fat and sugar values are very similar to a standard chocolate digestive. gluten-free doesn’t necessarily mean ‘healthier’. 1/5
