Flavour of the Week

TGIF


  • The talk of the town, this week! Countries with the highest use of high-fructose corn syrup also have the highest rates of type 2 diabetes. We don’t propose that HFCS is the healthiest  food out there and have no problems with any strategies to limit its intake; however, a focus on the overall nutritional quality of a food rather than one ingredient is a better approach. Marion Nestle also makes some excellent points regarding the response to the study and the quality of the study.
  • The American public isn’t going to wait for science to come to a consensus on the  health concerns with sugar and HFCS consumption. They’re already TRYING to reduce their intakes of sugar and HFCS. We say it can’t hurt, have at her.
  • Veggies get the love! Contrary to what we are often told, people do like veggies. Turns out vegetables make meals taste better. Serve them up for some love as well; cooks who added vegetables to their meals were viewed in a more positive and loving light. Interestingly, broccoli came out as one of the favourite vegetables for older children.
