Chef's notes

Healthy option

A normal croissant (made of white flour) procures about 230 calories and 12 gr of lipids, when a whole wheat croissant procures 200 calories and 10 gr of lipids. Compared to the original version, whole wheat croissant sustains more, since it procures more fibers (2 gr instead of 1 gr). An adult should eat normaly 25 gr of fibers each day. These helps for weight management, intestinal regularity as well as lower cholesterol while increasing satiety.
