Diet Nutrients, Micronutrients in Jelly/Jam

Food Nutrition in Jelly and Jam

Jams/jellies tend to be high in sugar and low in nutrients. The typical jam, jelly or marmalade offers little more than concentrated energy with a high sugar content - one tablespoon contains about 40 calories. Reduced sugar varieties of jam/jelly with half the energy content of regular jelly, are available but offer no more in the way of nutritional value. Although most jams/jellies contain fruit, the heat treatment used to boil these fruits during processing signficantly lowers their Vitamin C content.

Weight Control, Exercise and Nutrition

Some people who want to lose weight make the mistake of focusing exclusively on calorie-intake and counting calories. Although keeping track of energy intake is vital, energy expenditure is also important. So too is diet nutrition, because when we maintain a healthy body and metabolism, we burn calories faster. In short, if you want to lose weight, make sure you eat a healthy diet in order to obtain all your necessary nutrients.
