Dona,

I'm looking at the Apple Cinnamon Crunch Cereal... have you tried their cereals? Are they good?

Don't want to rtain on the parade.

Polydextrose with is the 1st or 2nd ingredient of all these items, is a carb (albeit a LG carb) should be comsumed in small quanities.

Page 241 of my book.

Btw,

Maltodextrin, malted barley, malitol, sorbitol, or other sugar alcohol are also included with polydextrose.

I have always contended that LG foods eaten in big amounts, become HG foods!

I would be careful with these items.

dear ed
your concerns are heeded however these candies are very small and if sugar busters sells them I feel a small amount is better than the ice cream recipe in the book with all the fat etc. sorry but I do disagree. I don't like sugar alcohols either and it seems polydextrose is a fiber very high fiber in fact. thanks for the input. Dona

I have not tried the cereals because I go to my local health food store and it is less expensive for me. They sound good though. Dona

Dona,

The great thing about this woe is it is individual.

But, the idea that if it is on the SB website, it is ok. I have to disagree.

Who owns and runs the website? That website is a for proifit operation?

Polydextrose is a carbohydrate, with alot of fiber granted, but a carbohydrate and a form of sugar. This is from the book. The writers seem fit to mention it.

My point was just to consume it in small amount if one would like to consume it. Also, if weight loss is not happening, then that is the first thing I would look at.

Btw, glad to hear the surgery went well, and you are doing good.

Take care,

Ed

The SB web site is not owned by the writers of the book? If not, and if some products on the SB web site should be eaten in small quantities if at all, then, this information should be clearly posted on the SB web site, next to the product in question. To someone new, the SB web site gives the impression that all of the products on the site have been highly recommended by the writers of SB book.

By the way, I am very grateful to the writers of the book SB. It has helped greatly my family.

Sofie.

Sofie,
My point was, on the internet, we don't know who is running what site and for what reason. For example the website "whitehouse.com" is a porn site. I don't think the white house is running that site. Lol!
So just because it says SB's, doesn't mean it is SB's from the same people.
Now, that said, it may be one and the same. But, on the internet you never know. That was all I was saying.
Take care,
Ed

it is the same i checked. it is the official site

It is true that some of the products on the SB web site contain Polydextrose. I am glad that this was pointed out in this forum. I thought that, since these products were sold by what appears to be the SB official web site, I wouldn't have to read the labels. unsure.gif

Hi all,

I made this point in another topic somewhere, but their cakes on the sugarbusters.com website, lists enriched wheat flour as the 2nd ingredient.

http://www.sugarbusters.com/product_info.php?cPath=1385&products_id=1022

I was shocked when I saw that and disappointed that this website that looks to be, and from what has been said on here IS the official sugar busters website, yet it contains ingredients direct warned against in the book. It just made me realize how much we really have to read the ingredients in any situation.

Also, while this isn't a big deal at all, I couldn't tell you what the last couple of things are on that list. That part definitely doesn't follow the "what the cave men had accessible" theory. But then again... it's cake. smile.gif

Dona,

Can I ask how you came to the conclusion that it was the "offical website"?

Hope you are doing well.

Ed
