BACK-TO-WORK, SUPER-QUICK RECIPE #3: BREAKFAST WRAP

WRAPS ARE TASTY, NUTRITIOUS, AND SUPER-EASY TO TURN INTO QUICK MEALS… BUT, NOT ALL WRAPS ARE CREATED EQUAL!

our leading dietitian and contributor Susie Burrell has created the easiest back-to-work ‘breakfast wrap’ that’s the perfect way to start a busy day


Leading health experts are warning us to check food labels, after a University of Newcastle review of the leading wraps brands found some are actually packed with salt and contain artificial preservatives. The team of researchers analysised 22 of Australia’s top selling wraps brands in a recent Wraps Unwrapped Report and found that some wraps that appeared healthy have the potential to make a significant contribution to daily salt intakes when consumed regularly, which is worrying given we already consume too much salt. {More finding from the report HERE}

Leading dietitian and our health contributor, Susie Burrell, also reviewed all the research, and said that while some wraps are high in salt, not all wraps are bad.

“The good news is that some of the wraps included in the Wraps Unwrapped Report were found to be lower in salt and contain no artificial preservatives.”

“One good choice for those wanting to moderate their salt intake and avoid artificial preservatives is Helga’s Traditional White Wraps (430mg sodium per 100g),” says Susie.

“Learn to read food labels and look for wraps with the lowest levels of salt. Wraps that contain around 600mg of sodium per 100g or less are considered to be moderate in salt according to the UK Food Standards Agency. Steer clear of anything over 600mg of sodium per 100g as that’s considered to be high in salt,” she says.

Susie has created us some super-quick nutritious and delicious wrap recipes using Helga’s, including this brekkie one:
