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!

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

so glad to hear they are superfree, me and my mum have taken to having these on our laps while watching tv throughout nights, great snacks and stop craving sweet treats.
