Too good to be true???

Recently I've been using sugar-free jelly as a snack as I am cutting

I was just wondering are there any negatives from eating the stuff

At the moment I prepare and eat a sachet a day which is 4 servings but still only 32 cals, tastes great and really takes care of my sweet tooth

    It's full of E numbers, apart from that.



    I have a fair bit myself to be honest.

    Wasn't there some talk about the amino content being non-essential as opposed to essential?

    Or am i being too pedantic?

    £1 in Farm Foods for a frozen bag of melon balls. Only 100 calories, weighs about 1lb.

    Sprinkle of artificial sweetner and you're away - even better than jelly.

    What is the diff between bioavailability and BV?

    I've always read it to mean:

    BV = quality of amino spectrum of the foodstuff
    BA = how much of this value can actually be used by the body, as a %

    I may well have it wrong and they mean the same thing??

    Correct.

    Bio-availability is how much protein ingested, can actually be utilized by the body.

    Biological Values refers to how well and how quickly the body can utilize the protein ingested.

    if your having it everyday then thats 224cals not counted in your diet u usually want to have a cal reducing between 250-500cals so it might slow down your progress in shifting fat.

    yeah sorry I didn't make it very clear there mate, I do count the cals in my overall diet but not the nutrition side of it, for example the few grams of protein in it, I wouldn't count them in my protein intake as u guys have mentioned it has a zero BV, shame really!
