    Just guessing, but it might be because you eat the pods as well as the peas. The pods are probably high fibre.

    I assumed they would be the same as peas - glad to hear they are superfree as I bought some today!

    A combination of the above answers - more fibre, less sugar/starch

    Yep, I agree that the pea in the sugar snap pea hasn't fully developed into a proper little pea, hence doesn't have as much sugar in them.

    also try shelling sugar snap peas . . . you would be there a lifetime to get a couple of tablespoons of peas
