Making Carbs Count, carb content of halloumi cheese, diabetes diet, low carb food

KITLIVING

Stick it on a skewer in the

summer and pop on the

barbie or roll in breadcrumb

and deep fry it for halloumi

chips. Toast under the grill

or in a pan. For a simple salad try halloumi

with tomato and mint, or with just a

squeeze of lemon juice. You can do a lot

with this cheese!

Thought to have originated in Cyprus,

but widely used throughout the Middle

East, halloumi (or haloumi) is a salty,

brined cheese traditionally made from

goat and/or sheep milk. It can be made

with cow's milk though the taste will

be a bit milder. The UK is the biggest

consumer of halloumi cheese outside

of Cyprus. In 2015 Waitrose customers

buying enough packs of halloumi to the

equivalent weight of 33 London buses.

Meanwhile online searches for 'halloumi'

have risen hugely in recent years (five

times more searches than five years ago).

Chris Dawson, Cheese Buyer at Waitrose

commented on the increase in sales of

halloumi by stating, "It's easy to see why

halloumi popularity has soared in the UK

- it's a tasty, quick mid-week meal option

and we've seen sales increase 26% in the

past two years."

It seems there is evidence of halloumi

being eaten as far back as 1,600 years

ago, which makes it older than that other

country favourite, cheddar. Being high in

protein and calcium, halloumi is also a

great option as part of a balanced diet.

Cypriots especially like to eat it grilled

Per 100g (50-60g is considered a

normal serving, it would fit in the palm

of your hand and be about 1cm thick):

2g carbohydrate, 26g fat (of which 20g

is saturated fat - men are recommended

to have no more than 30g saturated fat

per day and women 20g) and 2.4g of

salt (40% of your recommended daily

amount). With high salt and fat content,

it's not ideal to have much in the diet of

someone with either high blood pressure

or high cholesterol.

Halloumi Nutrition

MAKING CARBS COUNT

with watermelon, as the combination

of the salty and sweet is refreshing in

warm climates. You could try halloumi for

brunch or as an alternative to meat, as

it's a great swap for bacon because of its

saltiness. You can also freeze it for up to a

year without it affecting the texture.

Bare Grills

A 1cm-thick slice of halloumi needs

approximately three minutes grilling on

each side. The resistance to melting

comes from the fresh curd being heated

before being shaped and placed in brine.

The fat content is approx 25% wet weight,

47% dry weight with about 17% protein.
