Back to Basics! Preserving Foods :)

Sugar! sugar! everywhere!!! The solution is so damned simple! Ban &/or reduce significantly the amount they allow them to put in our foods

Silly me.... of course that will adversely effect the profits of both the Sugar Industry & Food Suppliers who's foodstuffs, without the horrendous amounts of sugar they add, would be almost unsellable - Far better to Tax 'us' for buying it You really couldn't make this stuff up!

I eat a lot of tomatoes, even the so-called 'Organic' tinned, bottled Toms have loads added I don't Want the extra sugar What to do! cut out both of the above I've been saving seeds from the tomato's I like, I'll also source some from local growers, grow & preserve them myself next year

All you need to know on Canning, Freezing, Preserving (inc drying) yer Toms

Re Jamie Oliver.

Re: Back to Basics! Preserving Foods :)

Sugar tax?

Didn't realise we had a 'Sugar Mountain' that we desperately needed to reduce!

Simples, tax the sugar so people go out now and buy lots more before the tax comes in, that will reduce the mountain quite quickly, only problem is though, for people who carry on and use it normally and not just scoff it because they have it, the problem then is knock-on effect to sugar producers will be unemployment, followed by industry depression bought about by not growing or selling the usual amount.

And that's not just talking about foreign countries, we in the UK have at the moment a very healthy 'Sugar Beet' industry.

Re: Back to Basics! Preserving Foods :)

tomatoes are full of lycopene--even more when theyre cooked--ı try and buy as lıttle processed food as possıble and cook everythıng from scratch.Trouble ıs you dont know what the fresh fruıt and veg has been sprayed wıth so everythıng gets a good wash.I dont drınk any kınds of drınk lıke coke eıther.If we all stopped buyıng theır poısons the gıant corporatıons would have to thınk agaın.Read the story of MONSANTO onlıne.

OF, we don't have a sugar mountain (that I know of).....

Our esteemed government is toying with putting an extra tax on 'sugar' products. They are trying to blame people for eating too many sugary products, getting overweight & becoming an added expense to the NHS. Trouble is; food suppliers are putting loads of sugar in most of our foods, whether we want/like it or not.

Recently I searched everywhere for tinned tomato's with No added sugar - they just don't supply them anymore. You just can't buy some everyday products that don't have sugar added to them

Re: Back to Basics! Preserving Foods :)

I think Oliver's idea is to force the soft drinks manufacturers to look for alternatives, if they start losing market share because a competitor has found the golden ticket then I'm sure they will respond.

9.5 tea spoons of sugar in a 330 can of Coke, 51 in the average bottle of wine, I know which I prefer.
