Nian Gao from Tung Lok

You might think we’re kidding since there seems to be nothing healthy about the Tung Lok Nian Gao that is always present during the festive season. However, it’s, in fact, the first nian gao in Singapore to be recognised by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) for its lower sugar content and as a source of dietary fibre. Coming in 4 great flavours: traditional, pandan, black sesame, and red dates, now that’s’ really something for your relatives to enjoy to their hearts’ content.

Well if you have difficulty finding the goodies in this article, don’t worry. Here are some practical tips to follow when you go on a healthier food hunt.
Compare similar products (like-for-like)
For instance do not compare canned pineapple and pineapple juice, though both of them use pineapple as one of their ingredients.
Compare the same nutrients
For instance, compare the fat content in one brand of pineapple tarts to that in another brand.
Compare the same portion
Serving sizes recommended by manufacturers may vary, thus we suggest comparing the nutrient values listed under the “per 100g” category in the Nutrition Information Panel.
