Each 1/2 cup serving contains 80 Calories; 9 grams Carbohydrates; 3.5 grams Total Fat, no Cholesterol; 3 grams Protein. Sugar Snaps grow easily up a trellis on the sunny side of a house, but in South Texas the weather is usually too hot. According to the Dietary Guidelines for American, 2010, frozen vegetables have the same nutritional value as fresh and most often have less added salt and sugar than canned. To add flavor, try adding herbs instead.
