Where's the Wheat?

Where's the Wheat? | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it
According to the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, there are an estimated 3 million Americans with celiac disease and another 18 million Americans who may suffer with symptoms related to gluten, but who have non-celiac gluten sensitivity.
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

The reasons the 18 million Americans, who have non-celiac disease sensitivity but purchase gluten free foods, give for their gluten -free choice is the perception that these are healthier; and others claim to use it for weight management.  Apparentlly the 80% of consumers following a gluten-free diet, are doing so without a diagnosis.   

 

The market for Gluten-free is estimated to be $4.2 Billion in 2013.

Try this Breakfast Frittata with Sausage and Sweet Potatoes recipe.
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

I do not buy ground meat. I buy the meat, either beef, pork, turkey or chicken, and use my food processor to reduce it into smaller pieces, to the consistency of groung meat.  I do buy pork sausage.

 

This allows me to use the most wholesome, and freshest ingredients. Simply cut the meat to smaller pieces and place it in the food processor.  Pulse it a few times using a food chopper blade.

 

Here is a recipe for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Make it ahead of time and  heat before serving.

U.S. Obesity Rate Climbing in 2013

U.S. Obesity Rate Climbing in 2013 | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it
The adult obesity rate so far in 2013, 27.2%, is on pace to exceed rates from the last five years. The obesity rate has increased across almost all demographic groups.
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

In 2013, 27%  of adults in the US are obese, up by 1% in 2012.   The percentage of normal weight adults fell slightly to 35.3%, adults who are overweight account for 35.5%, and 1.9% of Americans are classified as underweight in 2013.

 

Gallup and Healthways began tracking Americans’ weight in 2008. The data are based on more than 141,000 interviews conducted from Jan. 1 through Oct. 28 as part of the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index. Gallup uses respondents’ self-reported height and weight to calculate body mass index (BMI) scores. Individual BMI values of 30+ are classified as “obese,” 25–29.9 are “overweight,” 18.5–24.9 are “normal weight,” and 18.4 or less are “underweight.”

 

Obesity rates have increased at least slightly so far in 2013 across almost all major demographic and socioeconomic groups. At 35.7%, blacks continue to be the demographic group most likely to be obese, while those ages 18–29 and those who earn $75,000+ annually continue to be the least likely to be obese.

Obesity may alter our sense of taste, say researchers | FoodieDoc says: | Scoop.it
Obesity may drive fundamental changes in our perception of sweet tastes by modifying the number of cells that respond to sweet stimuli, according to new research in mice.
Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:

Animal studies were used in this research study.  The obese animals have fewer taste receptor cells for sweet taste and don't respond as well to sweet stimuli.

GUIDE TO FATS AND OILS

Anna V. A. Resurreccion's insight:
 Technologies like high oleic soybean oils fit food manufacturer's need for better-for-you products consumers demand, without sacrificing the true flavor.

 

High oleic soybean oils offer the following desirable attributes:

- Extended fry life
- Enhanced functionality
- Improved shelf life
- Desired neutral flavor
- Improved fat profileThe high oleic content makes the oils extremely stable, eliminating the need for partial hydrogenation, and offers superior resistance to oxidation. This increases shelf life and translates to cost savings for foodservice operations.
