Our expert says:
Provita are regarded as a low-fat, high-fibre and low-glycaemic index (GI) food which can be a great help to people tyring to lose weight or to control their blood sugar levels (i.e. insulin resistance). According to the label, a serving of 20 g = 4 Provita Wholewheat biscuits, provides 368 kJ or 92 kJ per biscuit. If you have 7 Provita per day = 7 x 92 = 644 kJ which represents 10,2% of your daily energy requirement if you are an adult woman who is trying to lose weight. This is not excessive and because Provita are also low GI (Gi = 49), they should help you to stop hunger pangs and lose weight.
Remember it is what you add to low-GI breads such as Provita that add kJ to your diet (e.g. fatty spreads, butter, margarine, etc).
