Is gingerbread healthy? Or not?

  1. Oh dear, there you have another one: the â € nipertimeâ € ™ that you thought was healthy at first, but which you have now started to doubt. We're talking gingerbread. That Snel Jelle that you have somewhere at the bottom of your bag in case of an emergency. Even when squashed it still tastes good, thanks to that typical spicy taste.

That Snel Jelle that you have somewhere at the bottom of your bag in case of an emergency. Even when squashed it still tastes good, thanks to that typical spicy taste.

  1. We figured it out for you: is gingerbread healthy, yes or no? Or is the truth somewhere in the middle?

The pepper in gingerbread

  1. Gingerbread, also known as gingerbread or gingerbread, is a typical Dutch delicacy that has been eaten in our country for centuries. When the cake was first prepared at the time, spices were added to the base of rye flour and honey, which at that time still fell under the collective name â € peppersâ € ™. Hence the name gingerbread, which is a bit misleading.

It used to be very â € ˜tastyâ € ™

  1. The recipe turned out to be a hit, although the dough was initially too tough to knead. In the course of time this has been resolved, but once a year around December 5, we opt en masse for the tough variety, better known as â € taaitaaiâ € ™. So much for the fun facts category!

  1. The original base is therefore a mixture of rye flour, honey and all kinds of spices. The ingredient list of the current gingerbread is now a bit longer. We take as an example one of the more famous brands: Peijnenburg Naturel. It contains high fructose corn syrup, rye flour, sugar, vegetable oils, leavening agent, wheat flour, spices and flavoring.

Nutritional value of gingerbread

  1. Striking is the presence of the different types of sugar. Do they make the gingerbread unhealthier? To judge that, we have to look at the nutritional value. And guess what? Every 100 grams of gingerbread contains 39.3 grams of sugar. In other words: 100 grams consists of almost 40% sugar! At the same time, the fiber content is relatively low.

  1. Chances are that your blood sugar level from a slice of gingerbread will skyrocket and you will feel fit for a while. The disadvantage is that after such a peak your blood sugar level drops quickly and you rekindle the appetite for sweets.

Is gingerbread healthy?

  1. In general, the different brands of gingerbread meet the above picture and you can rightly call the gingerbread â € koekâ € ™. In our opinion, it does not really belong in the responsible snacks category, but rather in the row of biscuits and sweets. Other excipients do not make us much more positive.

  1. We are referring to the e-numbers as well as the substance acrylamide used in the production of plastic that we know is harmful to animals.

You bake the healthy version yourself

  1. We are therefore not very enthusiastic about most ready-made gingerbread, gingerbread and gingerbread. But there is an alternative! Namely baking your own gingerbread. This way you keep control over the share of sugar and fiber. You do this by using natural sugars (in moderation) and flour, which, unlike flour, still contains the fibers.
