September 2010 newsletter: editor’s comment and ‘in this issue’

Edit comment: Bee careful!

I’m a good girl I am! I reads me labels, honest I do!  Despite years (OK decades) of practice and bigger better labels on food products I’ve still managed to come a cropper on food contents. Is it just me who thinks that ‘sugar free’ means just that? How can a label claim the food inside the packet is sugar free if it’s packed with carbs? Well, we ask someone in the know and get a solid answer in our lead feature, ‘Sweet nothings –Why labels about sugar can mislead’.


DIABETES KIT: Medical ID tags, heel helpers, pill poppers and jazzy blood test meters.

NEWS: A new book on coeliac disease, a paperback version of a practical guide to diabetes new 4mm needles from BD and a dance day sponsored by Bayer.

LIVING: We look at what ‘Sugar free’ means when it’s stuck on a food label – a diabetic needs to read the carb content for the real deal on what’s really inside the packet.
