How much saturated fat is in that biscuit?

The range of biscuits in the supermarket is vast. Chocolate, fruit, crème, shortbread, oat, plain, malt, to name just a few. We know they tend to be high in sugar but many are also high in saturated fat.

In an average 8700kJ day, we’re advised to get no more than 23g of saturated fat. We show what percentage of that 23g can be found in a biscuit serve. Serve sizes vary as we have tried to make them realistic.

Note: To keep saturated fat down, keep the serve size down. Have one rather than two biscuits and save those higher in saturated fat for a treat!
