Porridge is a great breakfast to have as it can make you feel pretty full and nutritionally is pretty good (DEPENDING ON WHICH ONE YOU BUY). I had a look on the back of some branded packaging and actually was surprised myself compared to the supermarkets own brand. Why? The reason is because of the sugar content. You will be surprised how much can be in them.
For example, one branded company has 23.3 grams of sugar per 100g!!! Compared that to Sainsbury’s Scottish Porridge Oats which has 1.0 gram of sugar per 100g! What a huge difference. Look before you buy. We all know what too much sugar can do to our weight if we don’t watch it.
