Are prawn crackers good for weight loss? What about the Kropek Calories?

Besuto prawn crackers are indeed a mindful choice for those conscious of their calorie intake. Compared to the traditional high-calorie snacks like buttered popcorn or cheese-flavored potato chips, Besuto prawn crackers are lower in saturated fat. 

The NHS (UK) recommends reducing saturated fat to lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Prawns, a key ingredient in Besuto, contain minimal saturated fat. 

However, the kropek calories in the prawn crackers are found in the amount of oil used to deep fry them.  It is important to note that prawn crackers are a snack food, and they should not be eaten as a substitute for a balanced diet.

So, there’s a way of taking Besuto as a satisfying snack without the guilt if you follow the conditions above.

Are there prawns in prawn crackers?

Yes, you can trust that there’s real shrimp in every Besuto Prawn Cracker. Prawns, commonly known as shrimps, are aquatic crustaceans, and they are a key component of  prawn cracker Besuto.

That’s why you enjoy the genuine taste of shrimp in every bite — it’s not just flavoring. It’s real shrimp!  It’s the presence of these real prawns that give every Besuto cracker its distinct taste and flavor.

Are prawn crackers high in protein?

Yes, prawn crackers, especially Besuto Prawn Crackers, are a high-quality source of protein. Prawns are rich in essential amino acids, making them an excellent choice for supporting proper cellular function and muscle health. The real presence of shrimps in Besuto prawn crackers provides valuable protein (about 15 grams per 100 grams) setting them apart from traditional, less nutrient-dense, high-calorie snacks.


Prawn Crackers Nutrition:  What really are the benefits of prawn crackers?

Prawn crackers nutrition, you asked?  Yes, we ensure that each Besuto prawn cracker flavor is a testament to our commitment to culinary excellence. And with that comes our responsibility to provide an enjoyable snack that’s also substantial.  

As proof and stamp of  legitimacy of the nutritional value of our prawn crackers, we  registered them with the Philippines’  Food and Drug Administration (FDA).    Besuto prawn crackers are given this category: “low risk food products,”  according to FDA.

Needless to say,  our prawn chips have been added other seafood ingredients to deliver the best-tasting shrimp crackers (the original flavor),  fish crackers, squid, crackers, and crab crackers to date.  

And to give more protein to the diet, we also introduced the meaty favorites:  bacon, pork, chicken and barbecue.  

Herbs such as onion, garlic and spices such as shoyu, chilli and the milder soya have their own pride of place in the variety of Besuto flavors. Like the rest of seafood and meat chips, they, too, have real prawns (or local shrimps) in every chip.

They are the result of years of refinement, ensuring that every bite is an experience worth savoring.



Locally Sourced

All ingredients used in the production of Besuto are locally sourced. That’s reduced carbon footprint and we helped our local farmers and fisherfolk when harvesting the seafood.

Selenium—a trace mineral important for cognitive and immune function—is most abundant in seafood.   Shellfish are also rich sources of B vitamins, which help support nerve structure and cell function.

Are there allergens in prawns?

Yes, prawns belong to the group of 14 common allergens, with crustaceans like prawns being one of them. If you have shellfish allergies that may lead to severe allergic reactions, it’s best to avoid consuming Besuto Prawn Crackers or any products containing prawns.

Are prawn crackers fattening?

Prawn crackers can be fattening if eaten in excess. They are high in calories and carbohydrates due to the starch found in the cassava and the amount of oil used in deep frying.  Moreover, they can contribute to weight gain if eaten regularly.

Nonetheless, prawn crackers are a good source of protein and Omega-3.  If you eat them in moderation and combined in a dish,  they can be part of a healthy diet.

While Besuto prawn crackers may contain some saturated fat due to cooking oil and carbohydrates from starch content, they are best enjoyed in moderation as occasional treats rather than a main source of nutrition.
