Strawberry Jam makes just about anything better. Strawberries are known for being a very healthy food but what about strawberry jam? Exactly how many calories are in strawberry jam? Let’s take a closer look.
While many people buy their strawberry jam at the store, there’s nothing better than good old fashioned homemade strawberry jam. It’s actually pretty healthy and low calorie too. One serving of homemade strawberry jam has 50 calories in in it. One serving size is considered one tablespoon. One tablespoon is plenty enough to add to a slice of toast or to combine with peanut butter for a PB&J.
Smuckers strawberry jam is the most popular store bought brand. Smuckers also has just 50 calories per serving size, but it has more carbs and sugar than homemade. Smuckers recently started making a sugar free strawberry jam for people on low calorie and low carb diets. The no sugar Smuckers has only 5 calories per serving, but is made with artificial sweetener Splenda. Some people believe the natural sugar is healthier.
So there you have it. Now you know how many calories are in strawberry jam. As long as you keep the amount you eat down to a minimum there is no reason why you can’t enjoy it on a delicious piece of whole wheat toast or a a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
