Boots Diabetic Food Range.

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community I'm over in the UK at the moment for my annual visit and couldn't believe my eyes when I went into Boots. They had a Diabetic section in the store and it had a 'food' range supposedly suitable for diabetics. They had chocolate bars, biscuits and other 'goodies', the carb content was higher than normal biscuits / chocolate. One bar I was looking at was 70 g per 100g of carbs. Obviously I didn't buy anything and couldn't find an assistant to complain. I looked on their website and they only mention they have the products and don't list them or their contents.......... Surely there are laws against this ? I know where I reside (in Germany) these false diabetic friendly products were made illegal or could not be labelled as diabetic friendly! Eating low carb for diabetics is relatively new in the UK but the NHS guide lines still does not advise it so until they do these products will still be on sale It is the same in Germany. Low carb is not recommended and I've had numerous arguments with medical staff over the benefits of low carbing . The point is Boot's are falsely labeling products (and inflating the price) which is bordering on fraud. Some years ago, Boots stopped labelling these products as "diabetic". If I remember correctly it was after pressure from Diabetes UK. I remember being really interested and going to Boots to see if they had any kind of sign up saying something like "We stopped selling these foods are they are unnecessary" etc. But all they done was relabel them as No Added Sugar or some such name. They all looked exactly the same apart from the name. Now they've gone back to labelling them diabetic. I can only presume they don't want Continue reading >>

Loganberry Books: Solved Mysteries: W

I read this as a child in the 60s, and I could have sworn it was a Francis book (Hoban). However, it is apparently not. The little Francis-like girl (badger/skunk?) babysits her little brother, and mayhem ensues. They get out all the pots & pans and bang on them, make jelly sandwiches and get jelly all over themselves, and finally have a pillow fight and get feathers stuck to the jelly. The mother comes home to find them both asleep in the crib, amid the mess. I would be so thrilled to find this book to prove I'm not hallucinating and it really exists (or exhisted)! Thanks! F212 I'm surprised you didn't recognize this: I t must be: Hoban Bread and jam for Frances Thanks for your effort, but unfortunately that is not the book I am looking for. In Bread & Jam for Frances, there are none of the babysitting scenes I described in my original posting. The way I remember the title of the book, it was something like, "Frances babysits" although that can't be right, since I've researched all the Hoban books, and none of them are about Frances babysitting. It's a conundrum! I'm sorry to disagree, but this is NOT Bread and Jam for Frances (written by Russell Hoban, illustrated by Lillian Hoban). In that book, Frances is cured of her picky eating habits when her mother serves her favorite snack, bread and jam, at every meal. She quickly tires of bread and jam and longs for variety in her diet. The stumper requester is looking for a different book! This is definitely NOT Bread and Jam for Frances. Sorry, this is NOT Bread and Jam for Frances. In that book, Frances only wants bread and jam to eat because it is so wonderful, and so she begins to have it served to her at every meal. At first she is happy with the situation but after awhile, watching her family and friends continue to Continue reading >>

Peach Freezer Jam - Southern Bite

Peach Freezer Jam - Southern Bite

Photography is not something I talk about a lot on the blog. I guess I just take it for granted, but its such an important part of a food blog. Photography is what people see first. The pictures have the important job of drawing peopleinto a post which is not something that even a flashyrecipe title can do. It also gives people an expectation about what the recipe will look like when they cook it at home. So, it really is an important part. The photograph, in many cases, is just as important as the recipe. And honestly, my images havent always been pretty like these of this delicious freezer jam. In fact, some of them have been downright ugly. Check out this comparison image of my Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings. I recently re-shot the images and when I decided to show them both to yall, I realized that I took these two pictures almost exactly two years apart. Look how much things have changed in 730 days! Now, Ill be the first to tell you that I am no expert. When it comes to food photography, I am self-taught. Despite a black and white photography class in college where I developed my own film and a short stint where I pretended to be a portrait photographer, my experience has been limited. But I love food photography. Its nice to shoot things that (normally) dont move and dont even get me started on food styling. Thats another thing that Ive grown to love. To me photos should be natural, beautiful, and mouth-watering. The styling should also be natural. You wont find me usingany fancy styling tricks when I shoot my food (or when we shot the images for the book). Everything is the real food that I cooked myself. I want your dish to turn out and look as closely to mine as possible, so I dont use any of those tricks like using mashed potatoes for ice cream or putting Continue reading >>

Rose-hip Extract Pills Slash The Pain Of Arthritis By 90 Per Cent

Rose-hip extract pills slash the pain of arthritis by 90 per cent Rose-hip extract pills slash the pain of arthritis by 90 per cent A NEWLY available pill made from rose-hip extract has the power to reduce the agony of osteoarthritis sufferers by an astonishing 90 per cent. Rose hip extract has been proven to have anti-inflammatory properties beneficial to osteoarthritis [GETTY] Human trials suggest a wonder supplement called Gopo named after a key ingredient of the plant could provide a breakthrough for six million Britons whose lives are blighted by joint pain. Pills containing the supplement are now available in the UK for the first time for just 15p each. Scientists said they have proved the herbal remedy possesses special properties which can alleviate the condition in the hand especially. Danish researchers found the specially cultivated compound reduced nagging pain in nine out of 10 of the 30 people who took part in clinical trials. Debilitating stiffness in finger and thumb joints the calling card of osteoarthritis can make tasks like opening jars, holding cutlery and tying shoelaces near to impossible. The results of investigations carried out at Frederiksberg University in Copenhagen and published in the Open Journal of Rheumatology and Autoimmune Disease show the natural extract could offer the closest thing to a cure. The pill gave round-the-clock relief, and sufferers were a third less likely to use conventional painkillers after taking the supplement. Scientists now plan a wider investigation of its anti-inflammatory properties. Lead researcher Kaj Winther said: Gopo has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and chondroprotective activity, helping to protect and repair joint cartilage even at low concentrations. The lessening of hand pain and stiffness ob Continue reading >>

Goodies : U.k. : Active Low-carber Forums

Because I live over here I can only get low carb stuff over the net, but there is so much choice. I need you to teel me what is nice and what i should steer clear of. ( especially in the low carb chocolate dept) If you are past your 14 day induction phase, or if you are still in induction but feel like your keytones are stable.... you might try the Carbolite brand of sweets! They are great....they have chocolate bars, carmel chocolates, peanut butter cups, etc. I do not know if they have a website or not, but do a search....I know you can buy them through Wal-Mart. Also, try looking on Atkins website for sweet low carb recipes. I imagine you have many different products than we have in North America. No shops sell any low carb foods her. I can get them from the websites but its really expensive and i dont want to commit my pounds until I have some recomended to me. So tell me what tastes yummi and what tastes yukki. Your UK websites sell products that your UK fellow lowcarbers can best answer your question. The UK Forum is full of UK low carbers who can help you best. I'll move your post there (there will be a link here for you to scott directly there from here in the Products forum). Everyone has different tastes, but the one thing I find absolutely heavenly is Atkins Peanut Butter Cups (Not the bars) Yummmm!! The bars, people differ on what they like, so it is hard to recommend one thing that you specifically would like - but the Atkins bars are the best as far as my taste buds go. There is also Pure-delite truffles - mint, orange, amaretto - a few others that I cannot remember. Remeber though, if you are ordering chocolate - keep in mind the tempatures of where you order and where you are. If it's low carb chocolate you want go to Boots. They do an excellent range o Continue reading >>

Jam & Fruit Spreads Review

Jam & Fruit Spreads Review

Bonne Maman has been rated highest when it comes to jams & fruit spreads in Australia, scoring five-star reviews on overall satisfaction, taste, consistency, packaging appeal and variety. It also achieved four stars in terms of value for money. Bonne Maman knows the way to Aussie hearts There arent too many sweet treats that are seen to be acceptable as a breakfast option, but thankfully jam and fruit spreads always appear on breakfast menus. From the mini jars to value tubs, jam and fruit spreads are versatile enough to not only enjoy on your morning toast but also on the side of a cheese platter. For something extra special, why not whip out a freshly baked croissant for your jammed taste buds! Supermarket aisles are certainly not short on tasty jams, but which brand do Aussies prefer? Our annual customer reviews aims to find out just that. We went out to over 1,400 shoppers and asked their opinions on their recent purchase of jam and fruit spreads to find out which brand blends together the best taste for your sticky treat buck. Nine brands made into this years ratings, but only one took out the golden spot Bonne Maman. Replacing St. Dalfour at the top of the table from last year, Bonne Maman received five stars for overall customer satisfaction, taste, consistency, packaging appeal and variety, as well as four stars for value for money. This year, St. Dalfour settled for four stars but was the only other brand to achieve five stars for consistency. St. Dalfour also scored five stars for taste and variety, along with Beerenberg and Bonne Maman. Beerenberg, Cottees, IXL, Roses and ALDI Grandessa also scored four stars overall. But ALDI was the only brand to receive five stars for value for money. Supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths both got only three stars in mo Continue reading >>

The diabetic debate has swung into overdrive following the Co-op Group's decision last month to stop selling foods aimed at people with diabetes. Diabetic food producer Stute Foods of Bristol said the move stopped consumers from having choice. The Co-op argued that diabetic products were often very expensive, but Stute claimed that its diabetic jam was cheaper than other preserves. We're not trying to con anyone, said the firm. It's not a medicine - it's a jam! While the Co-op said that feedback following its decision, which was backed by Diabetes UK, had been positive, Stute claimed to have been inundated with product requests from angry diabetics. Since the Co-op announced this news, we've had hundreds of phone calls, said Stute. Some people will stop their subscription to Diabetes UK. Stute claimed that the Co-op's decision, which was announced during Diabetes Awareness Week, was a marketing stunt. The Co-op and Diabetes UK are ganging up together, he claimed. Why did they have to announce it during Diabetes week? It's for publicity. However, the Co-op may not receive the type of publicity it was looking for. Boots dropped its diabetic range in 2002, but soon ran into problems. We were ahead of the game on this, but we had so many complaints, we had to reinstate the range, said Boots. The Food Standards Agency supported Diabetes UK's view that no foods should be labelled 'diabetic' or 'suitable for diabetics'. Like everybody, people with diabetes are encouraged to eat only small amounts of food that are high in sugar and/or high in fat, said the agency. That may be so, but i Continue reading >>

Where Can I Buy Scotts..orange Marmalade Suitable For Diabetics?? Or Another Brand ?

WHERE CAN I BUY SCOTTS..ORANGE MARMALADE SUITABLE FOR DIABETICS?? OR ANOTHER BRAND ? and yes i know i can buy online but the cost is around 8.00 for delivery by post and makes no sense as the marmalade costs 2.70..thanks..ps: i live in bedfordshire uk Are you sure that you want to delete this answer? Best Answer: Tesco stocks the lowest sugar marmalade I have yet found, Streamline 100% Fruit Orange Marmalade No Added Sugar (300g), it is only 1.89. It looks a little odd and the texture is unusual, however it is only 8% sugar and is very pleasant to taste, Source(s): Reverse Any Diabetes Easily : Source(s): I Cured My Diabetes : Tesco's sells Streamline. Not that this will help you but up in the North we have a shop called Boyes - its sells all sorts - material, clothes, pots and pans and Scotts Marmalade! I often look in shops that you would never think of looking for sugar free or reduced sugar food stuffs and I am amazed to see them selling sugar free jams and marmalade's. Also try your 1 shops. They tend to stock end of ranges and sometimes they have sugar free goods. Hope this helps. Jan If you take insulin most fruits are doable so long as you bolus correctly for the fruit you are eating. Some fruits have more natural sugar than others. Fruits like melon, bananas and oranges will make your blood sugar rise fairly rapidly. If you are type two, it can be a bit more complex. Fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and blackberries will not affect your blood sugar as dramatically as some of the other ones I mentioned. Each person is different and certain fruits will bother your blood sugar more or less than someone else. Make sure to test two hours after eating a new fruit type to see how you do.

Am in the process of finishing off some favours for christmas day, and have bought a chocolate truffle for each one. However, one of the guests is diabetic, so I had thought I would simply buy a diabetic chocolate piece. But can I find any!!!! I can find bars, or a box full, but not a single one (or even 5 if I had to although am trying to keep costs down). Wondered if any forum members were diabetic and knew where I can buy a single chocolate (ideally truffle size to fit inside favour??? There are currently no thanks for this post. Thorntons do a good range, you have to buy them in bags though but guess you could split and and individually wrap them, would look quite nice Boots have got quite a good range in a variety of sizes If you attend a Diabetic Clinic, they warn you not to buy diabetic sweets and chocolate. I used to be indecisive but now I am not sure. My dad was diagnosed with diabetes in Jan, and tried the diabetic jam and choc and got severe diaorhea and was really ill for several days.The doc said it was the sorbitol in the food and he must never have it again "You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf" My Dad is also a diabetic who uses insulin - his nurse told him he could have a treat or two on Xmas day. I'm sure one truffle would not put their blood sugar up too high. My Dad was also told to avoid diabetic chocolates. sainsburys do a sugar free chocolate ,deffinately would not buy diabetic stuff apart from the fact its a rip off it has a severe laxative effect and goes as far as putting warnings on the products especially choc , my nurse said if i needed a fix of choc to buy the bite size bars. Don't waste your money on 'diabetic' sweets and chocolates, really they are a bad idea. Most are sweetened with polyols which can have really hectic g Continue reading >>

Yet, this doesn't stop thousands of diabetics believing they have to buy this food and countless manufacturers selling diabetic food products. The situation has reached the point at which Diabetes UK and the Food Standards Agency have issued a joint statement calling for an end to diabetic food and suitable for diabetics on food labels. This shift in dietary policy is largely down to changing diet advice, which recommends that any food is suitable for people with diabetes in sensible moderation. Concern has existed for some time that labelling a food as diabetic could mislead people with diabetes into thinking that the food was essential or at the least especially suitable. Often, diabetic foods are more expensive than standard products, with sugar-free and low-sugar versions also often misleading. Often, diabetic food labelling is applied to sweet food such as biscuits and chocolate. According to the joint statement - people who eat sugary food should do so sparingly, and only as part of a healthy and balanced diet. Effectively, healthy eating advice provided by the authorities is the same for people with diabetes as it is for those without. Essentially, specially designated diabetic foods should now become a thing of the past. I am diabetic, should I eat diabetic food? No, people with diabetes dont need to eat special diabetic food.
