Hi folks! Today's just a quick post! I was going to post about reading labels today, and by an amazing twist of fate, while I was at the supermarket yesterday, I came across a perfect example of WHY we should read labels! On the label of a particular product I was looking at, I came across an ingredient I had never heard of before, despite 15 years of working with food and a Bachelor of Food Science and Nutrition! The ingredients was listed as GDL; turns out glucono delta-lactone is an acidity regulator, produced from dextrose derived from starches such as corn, wheat and potato. I want to stress that GDL is allowed by FSANZ, and is generally regarded as safe, but the point I want to make is, that if we don't know what's in our food, we can't know what's going into our bodies. Okay, rant over! Here's a quick guide from the National Health and Medical Research Council about reading and understanding food labels! For more information, head to FSANZ's page on nutrition information panels. Have a great week!
