London, July 24 (ANI): One scrumptious cheese sandwich can contain almost 15g of saturated fat equal to five pieces of deep fried chicken, says a new research.

Dietician Sian Porter found cheddar and pickle sarnie from sandwich chain Eat contained 14.6g of saturated fat.

Pret a Mangers buttie had 14.3g, Tescos had 13.7g and one from Sainsburys contained 13g.

The recommended daily limit for women is 20g, and 30g for men.

We dont realise how much saturated fat a cheese sandwich can contain, The Sun quoted Porter, as saying.

Saturated fat affects cholesterol, which can cause heart disease.

Jim Winship of the British Sandwich Association said: Its ludicrous. Other foods have much higher fat levels. (ANI)
