Jam


Strawberry, blueberry, cherry, hard not to crack in front of a jam pot! But be careful with calories ...

Jam: how to choose?

  • Commercial jams are defined according to the fruit and sugar levels they contain: the simple "jams" have less than 45% fruit (for 55% sugar). The jams "extra", more than 45% of fruit.
  • The best remaining luxury products and those that are made at home with as much fruit as sugar.

Dietetics?

  • Not really ! A tablespoon of jam equivalent to about 2 pieces of sugar, be careful not to abuse in the diet of children.
  • Keep your hand lightfor example by introducing it into desserts instead of powdered sugar or by diluting it in a little water to obtain a coulis, delicious on a small-Swiss nature.
