When I went shopping last week I picked up a tin of Oaktree beans from Tesco, because they were cheaper than their Value range. As soon as I tasted them I knew they had far too much sugar in them, yuk!
I usually have half a tin on toast, but when I came to use the second half I put them in a sieve and rinsed the sauce off them. In a half can serving there is 12.2 gr of sugar as opposed to 9.2 gr in the Value. In fact looking at the rest of the ingredients it seems the Value is slightly more healthy apart from the salt content, which is slightly more.
But then there is something else to consider, the Value has 44% beans, and the Oaktree has 49%. So which is it to be? Save 3p, get more beans and more sugar, more calories, more fat, but less salt. So confusing :o( Don't know which to buy for the best now.
Twas a beautiful sunset tonight, did you see it? I caught a glimps of it over the rooftops so I legged it to the church to get a few snaps. It was breathtaking. How lucky that we are high up here and have such good views.
Ten minutes later it was gone.
