A croissant is a crescent-shaped French pastry that has become popular all over the world. It’s made from flour, yeast, butter and milk and can be enjoyed plain or filled with cheese, chocolate or other savory ingredients. Nutritionally speaking, a single plain croissant contains approximately 250 calories, 12 grams of fat (6 of which are saturated), 35 grams of carbohydrates and 5 grams of protein. Although it does provide some essential vitamins like Vitamin A and iron as well as dietary fiber in small amounts; unfortunately most store-bought varieties are loaded with added sugars to enhance their flavor profile. On the plus side however they do contain healthy fats derived from butter so they can help you feel full longer after eating them than processed white bread products would – making them an excellent choice for breakfast on days when you have to rush out the door! Additionally if consumed in moderation even sweetened versions won’t significantly raise your daily calorie intake either due to their relatively low caloric density compared to many other baked goods such as donuts or cookies. The main downside is that croissants tend not offer much nutritional value beyond what’s mentioned above since they’re mostly composed of refined grains; but this could easily be remedied by choosing whole wheat varieties instead whenever possible!
