Test results to know the Best Digestive Biscuits

Digestive Biscuits are rich in fiber and highly recommended as a healthy substitute to the normal biscuits and cookies. We at Consumer VOICE tested popular brands like Anmol, Britannia, Dukes, Mc Vities, Patanjali, Parle, Priyagold, Unibic, Cremica etc. to know if the dietary fiber claims of these brands are true and also to know which is the best digestive biscuits brand.

Look for the ones with the most dietary fibre

Digestive biscuits are expected to be a rich source of dietary fibre and in the comparative tests we carried out on nine brands, this parameter was given the highest weightage. For most people, digestive biscuits are a good alternative to cookies and snacks that contain only white flour and sugar. At the same time, there are standards to abide by when it comes to quality and safety, and not all the brands out there may pass. Brands also tend to make their own particular claims to stand out and more often than not, the truth emerges only when we check these against bare facts and numbers.

We tested nine leading brands of digestive biscuits on various quality, safety and acceptability parameters that are crucial in determining whether the product is safe for consumption at all. As per our standard practice, we undertook market research to identify the popular and regular-selling brands of digestive biscuits across the country.

The testing was conducted at an NABL-accredited laboratory. The samples were tested as per specifications laid down by Indian Standard IS: 1011 and FSS Regulations, 2011.
