The Benefits of Everyone’s Favorite Salty Snack

People love eating pretzels as snacks. Better for you than a typical salty treat, pretzel lovers can enjoy something crunchy and salty without feeling guilty about what they are putting in their bodies. Like most things, pretzels are best eaten in moderation.

Here are some benefits of our favorite salty snack.

Low Fat

Pretzels are one of best snacks when it comes to fat content. A 100-gram serving of hard pretzels, or about 16 pretzels depending on their size, has just three grams of total fat and no cholesterol. The same portion of potato chips has 36 grams and tortilla chips have 23 grams of fat.


Enjoying a snack of hard pretzels adds to your daily fiber intake. A 100-gram serving has three grams of fiber. That may not sound like much, but it’s eight percent of the recommended daily intake for men and 12 percent for women.


Hard pretzels have seven to 10 percent of the daily intake of seven minerals, but they’re especially high in iron and zinc.

B Vitamins

A serving of hard pretzels provides as much as 20 to 40 percent of the daily intake of riboflavin, niacin and thiamin, and 71 percent of your daily requirement for folate.

Here at Fatty Sunday’s we wanted to take everyone’s favorite snack and create a delectable, guilty pleasure for pretzel lovers. Do you think we succeeded?
