Snack fact: Salt and vinegar crisps have more salt than other flavours
Which crisps are highest in salt - Ready Salted, Cheese & Onion or Salt & Vinegar?
ANSWER - SALT AND VINEGAR
As the vinegar has a strong taste, salt and vinegar crisps tend to contain more salt than other flavours.
A small bag has 0.5g of salt compared with 0.4g in ready salted, 0.3g in cheese and onion and 0.38g in jerk chicken flavour.
Salt 'n' shake varieties contain the most salt however - 0.6g a bag.
Which tomatoes are the healthiest: cherry, vine, beef or tinned?
ANSWER - TINNED
Tomatoes contain lycopene, an antioxidant thought to help prevent prostate and mouth cancer, and skin ageing.
Lycopene is released by heating, so tinned tomatoes are a better source than fresh because heating is part of the canning process.
For the same reason, ketchup contains more lycopene than fresh tomatoes.
Herb of life
Parsley contains more vitamin C than oranges, more potassium
than bananas, more calcium than milk and more iron than steak.
The herb is traditionally used to lower blood pressure (thanks to its high potassium, which counteracts sodium and lowers blood volume).
Studies show it’s also a diuretic. But avoid high doses of parsley oil or parsley extract supplements during pregnancy, as it can cause the womb to contract.
