150g, £2.09 Per bis­cuit (12.5g): calo­ries, 64; sat­u­rated fat, 2.4g; fi­bre, 0.5g; sugar, 3.9g; salt, 0.04g

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
