Could it be true - could eating Bury Black Pudding help you feel fuller for longer and aid your weight loss efforts?
Weight loss experts agree that when we feel full we have less of an urge to snack and over consume calories. Choosing foods that help you to feel fuller for longer is a great way to make the most of you weight loss efforts and keep you on the right track.
Barley is one such food, which has been well documented to give that 'fuller for longer' effect. Hulled Barley has been described as a natural appetite suppressant. It has been suggested that due to its high fibre content hulled barley is a 'game changer' which can help to keep you feeling fuller for longer.1
At their factory in Bury, Lancashire, The Bury Black Pudding Company use over 140,000 kilos of this wonder grain every year to make their world famous black puddings. Every pudding is packed full of these little super-grains. This, amongst other credentials helped them to gain 'superfood' status back in 2016.
Hulled Barley contains high amounts of fibre which is slow to digest and therefore makes you feel full. It also has a low glycemic index, which means that eating it will not cause high blood sugar levels that lead to cravings when those blood sugar levels drop.
Bury Black Pudding is also surprisingly low in fat, much lower than other brands. Slices from the Bury Black Pudding Company contain just 2.5% fat compared to 37% used by some other manufacturers.
Brand Manager for The Bury Black Pudding Company said: "We are not claiming that Black Pudding is a magic weight loss miracle. However, Bury Black Puddings can be a beneficial part of a sensible calorie controlled and balanced diet. People don't realise just how good a quality black pudding is for them."
A word of warning though, as with so many foods there are good and bad examples. Whilst The Bury Black Pudding Company offer some of the healthiest black pudding products on the market, others may not have such good credentials. Always check the packet to be fully aware of the nutritional information.
