Thin crust pizzas not necessarily a healthier optionJanuary 25th, 2011 - 5:52 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 25 (ANI): Thin crust pizzas are sometimes the unhealthiest, reveals a new survey.
However, seemingly indulgent deep pan alternatives offered by supermarkets and takeaway firms can in fact contain less fat or salt, a survey of cheese and pepperoni pizzas shows, reports the Daily Mail.
Perhaps surprisingly, frozen pizzas also tend to be healthier than supermarkets’ fresh ones, found the researchers.
The findings come from consumer experts who want clear labelling on supermarkets’ packaging and takeaway firms’ websites to help pizza-lovers choose healthy options.
“We found an enormous and often unrealistic range of portion sizes and different front-of-pack nutrition labelling schemes-even by the same manufacturer-making it very difficult to compare products,” said the spokesman. (ANI)
