Pillsbury Crescent rolls, a bread fresh from your oven, come in six different types -- original, reduced fat, big and buttery, big and flaky, garlic butter and place and bake rounds. Eat crescents in moderation because of a high fat content and lack of fiber. The American Heart Association recommends eating six to eight servings of grains per day with half being whole-grain choices.

One crescent has 90 to 150 calories or 5 to 8 percent of the daily value of calories based on a 2,000-calorie diet. The crescent rolls also contain 1 to 2 grams of protein, which equals 2 to 4 percent of the daily value for protein. Crescents are high in fat, with 4 to 7 grams per serving including 1.5 to 3 grams of saturated fat. This provides 6 to 11 percent of the daily value for fat and 8 to 15 percent of the daily value for saturated fat.

Each crescent averages 4 to 6 percent of the daily value of carbohydrates or 11 to 18 grams of carbohydrates per serving. Crescents are a refined grain and contain zero to less than 1 gram of fiber. The sugar content is also low, with 2 to 4 grams per serving.
