Reduced Fat Wheat Thins

Wheat thins are probably pretty healthy to begin with (compared to potato chips) but the reduced fat version makes them even more so.

Here’s the stats.

Serving size 29g (about 16 crackers)
130 Calories
3.5 g of fat (only 0.5 saturated, plus 2 grams poly unsaturated) compared to 5 g fat in normal wheat thins (30% reduced).
230 mg sodium
22 g carbs (2g fiber, 4 g sugar)

Label claim – 11g of whole grain per 29g serving.

Not only are they better than regular Wheat Thins, compared to potato chips

Chips: 28 g serving
150 calories
9 g fat, 2 g saturated
95mg sodium
14 g carbs

I like the reduced fat Wheat Thins just on taste alone, I’ve always liked Wheat Thins, but the health aspects make them a guilt free snack.

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
