Smucker launches reduced-sugar Uncrustables
by Eric Schroeder
ORRVILLE, OHIO — The J.M. Smucker Co. has expanded its Uncrustables line of frozen foods with the introduction of three new varieties: peanut butter and raspberry spread sandwich on whole wheat bread; reduced-sugar peanut butter and strawberry spread sandwich on whole wheat bread; and reduced-sugar peanut butter and grape spread sandwich on whole wheat bread.
The reduced-sugar versions of the strawberry and grape Uncrustables contain 6 grams of sugar, 190 calories and 170 mg of sodium per serving. By comparison, the “regular” versions of the same flavors contain 9 grams of sugar, 210 calories and 240 mg of sodium per serving. The reduced-sugar Uncrustables contain no high-fructose corn syrup, while the regular Uncrustables do, according to product information listed on the Smucker web site.
Additionally, all three of the new varieties contain 3 grams of dietary fiber per serving, which compares with 2 grams of dietary fiber per serving in non-whole wheat Uncrustables.
