New research on the variations in nutritional content and portion sizes of scones in Northern Ireland

FSA publishes a new research revealing variations in nutritional content and portion sizes of scones in Northern Ireland

The Food Standards Agency[1] has published the findings of its latest research which reveals that scones produced in Northern Ireland can be in the region of 750 calories and contain the equivalent to ten sugar cubes.

The research, conducted by the Agency, in partnership with local councils, looked at the levels of energy, sugar, fat, saturated fat, fibre, salt and portion size in an extensive range of locally produced scones sold in Northern Ireland. It found a wide range of nutritional values of scones and, not surprisingly, highlighted a correlation between larger portion sizes and increased calorie content.
