Interesting reading that broccoli, cauliflower and kale are on the increase in the UK. London Evening Standard even goes as far as calling it a war on carbs. The paper refers to a website selling “fat-free, protein-heavy sandwiches made from a highly secret broccoli bread formula”. I’ve been in contact with the company behind these sandwiches asking what % of carbohydrate per 100 grams of food their products include. This information is often provided on food products’ package labels. Unfortunately no news after several emails which makes me wonders how low-carb this “highly secret broccoli bread formula” actually is. I also wonder why these products are “fat-free”? There is no evidence that natural saturated fat (such as butter, eggs, coconut, cream, cheese, animal fats etc.) is anything but completely safe to eat.
The good thing however is that the London Evening Standard highlights the subject on low-carb food, providing it isn’t junk food dressed up by creative marketing teams as high quality food.
