Irene’s fat-free biscotti, a great baked item

I miss cakes and cookies so much since my angioplasty, but I’m restricted to no more than 40 grams of fat a day and 1,200 mgs of salt, so baked goods are largely off my plate these days. I’ve been searching for some that are low- or no-fat and low- or no-sodium at the same time, with some good results.

A favorite is Irene’s fat-free biscotti slices carried by Whole Foods and until recently by my local Jewel supermarket.

Irene's biscotti slices are expensive, but good when you crave something baked.

Each slice contains zero fat, only 5 mgs of salt and 3g of sugar. A slice, there are about 18 in a container, is only 20 calories, so here, finally, is something you can binge on while on a restricted diet! I always buy the cranberry ones because they are the only variety without nuts. If you eat nuts, there are several other types you can try.

  1. I agree. These delectable biscotti are mouth watering, low calorie, and low sugar which makes me not feel so bad about eating a whole box! So grateful for these!
