We all need to keep out wits about

us when it comes to our food. This

issue there's a reminder about how

to read labels when it comes to

sugars and carbs. P.32.

One thing that drives me nuts at the moment is bad labelling on food.

In some cases it's getting better, with manufacturers understanding

that only listing their product 'per 100g' makes calculating a 35g bar

rather hard work, so listing the carb-count per bar is very welcome. But in other

cases it's getting worse with actual sweets (boiled sugar no less) being promoted

as 'sugar free' - look at the carb-count it's sky-high. The lead feature in this issue

has me unpicking what 'sugar free' might mean and how badly used this term is.

But the general public is waking up to the misinformation that is being perpetrated

in some quarters (and they do have to wake up as they are paying the price with

unwelcome impact on their health). In Making Carbs Count there is a reminder how

to read a label when it comes to Carbs Vs Sugars, an area important to anyone

who doses according to this kind of information, as I do. There's also refreshers

in this issue on what else you can glean from a nutrition label and the basis of the

glyceamic index, another handy tool to help keep blood glucose levels stable. And

as it's autumn, there's also a short report on how best to look after your feet in the

winter months when they tend to be hidden away but still need to be taken care of!
