Liverwurst spread

Pork liver for those who have not heard of it. Tastes good on toast with fresh tomato.

Looking at the ingredients it contains dextrose.

More important what is the sugar reading? Everything you buy with a label should be 3g per 100g, or 3% per 100%. You are in the States, and they don't list sugar as clearly as we do in Australia.

I love a good homemade chicken liver pate. Eggs, fried chicken liver, cream, etc.

dj, if (and this doesn't come up often) the only type of sugar is dextrose, do we still need to keep the sugar under 3% or can it go higher?

Well, I'm very different to most people here, I follow Quit Plan to a 'Q'. I keep everything to under 3g per 100g.

When checking labels, you need to work out what type of sweetener is used, lactose, glucose, dextrose or anything else on David's safe list you can happily consume the product.  If in the ingredient list it has sugar then it needs to be less then 3g per 100g.  I believe this is what David does.

NicNic, how long have you been sugar free? If you aren't through withdrawal, then I'l leave the pate because of the dextrose. At least until you are through withdrawal.

I have been sugar free for 11 days. I am over my headache withdrawals I only had them for 4 days. I am now feeling very full after eating especially protein foods like eggs.

The liverwurst specifically says dextrose on the label. and the sugar says less than 1g per 100g. Its only a meat spread so no specific sweet taste to it.

I choose products  that have 1.4g or less in the sugars on the label. I do not miss eating sweet foods and don't need to start substituting sweet stuff with dextrose yet.

I have been eating some high fat foods and suprised to see I have lost 1kg in 7 days.

Well the high fat foods, proteins and no sugar will do that for you Smile

Well done.

Thank you,

I think I am going to have the most trouble staying away from seed oils. They seem to be in everything.

NicNic - once you've been off sugar for a few months - 6 months, or whenever you feel like there are a lot of options for you to eat that are sugar free, you can then start buying things without bad oils. I would wait until you are well and truly adjusted to the low sugar lifestyle otherwise it can be a bit overwhelming cutting everything out at once. But of course, you can start by switching to real butter and olive oil or cooking with lard, today, if you need to. Here's a graphic if you haven't seen it yet - http://i46.tinypic.com/14cy793.jpg

The real challenge comes when cutting out the foods that already have the bad oils in them - if they haven't already been cut out by the low sugar diet already - but by the time that point comes, you probably won't have that much of a taste for processed foods anymore, or you will be happy to make a healthier version yourself at home.

Cool thank you I am going to print that out and put it in my kitchen. Yes I agree with waiting to completely cut out the seed oils. I am just needing to open my awareness of where they are hidden.

I am so happy to just find out that my favourite puff pasty (frozen) comes in a butter version! I love making savoury treats with puff.
