Thanks Maxine! I've been thinking about baking some Anzac biscuits and was wondering what I can substitute the golden syrup with. I wasn't keen on honey flavoured Anzac biccies.

My friend has given me some Golden Syrup (so kind!) and custard powder.Looks like hot sponge and custard coming up! Comfort food just perfect for this cold weather!

I never had hot dogs with palta, ketchup, and mayonesa until I came to Chile, but I really like hot dogs with saurkraut and ketchup :)

From what my wife tells me the myth that Vienesas are made from horse meat was meant to deter children from eating too many Completos. Although Vienesas may contain horse meat amongst other meats is not too far fetched.

There's nothing wrong with horse meat.

Now, there is other stuff going into hot dogs and sausages that I really do not want to know about. Just eat them; never ask what's in them.

As I stated in anoytehr thread, I had the good fortune to stop by in the mercado of Temuco. I was overjoyed to see real german type frankfurters for sale in the loca stalls. I I am used to these and not like the skinless thing that are sold in stores. I bought some frankurters there from local butcher and loved the taste. Are the ingredients in the artesanal sausages better or the same as in bulk brands????

Re: ...a “poor” and “unhealthy” diet...

Post by greg~judy » Fri Dec 10, 2010 10:29 am

g~j cannot demonstrate any surprise whatsoever at these data...?
We won't even compare with (generally pathetic) western dietary standards either.
But on a broader world~wide~plate~perspective...
We remain quite unimpressed~underwhelmed at the dietary choices we see here.
Can we blame the country's ability to produce healthy foods?
Of course not!

BTW... g~j know only too well, the root problem(s) behind this study...
But we won't bore you with our analysis.
Assuming many may agree with the gist of the info. presented...
We will wait for them to venture that way.

In full realization - other than some individual awakenings to proper dietary choices...
Nothing is going to change on a cultural level here... the status quo will remain intact.
And that... combining food and health on the same plate (will remain) an elusive concept for many Chileans.

Most Chileans have a “poor” and “unhealthy” diet shows nutritional report

A study by the Catholic University of Chile and the Banmedical Foundation showed that 62% of Chileans were found to have a “poor diet” and 29% an “unhealthy” diet.

Only 5% of Chileans eat fish more than twice a week Only 5% of Chileans eat fish more than twice a week

The study collected data from 15,000 people over the age of 20, who had participated in the “Eat Healthy” program.

It seems that combining food and health on the same plate is an elusive concept for many Chileans. While foods rich in protein and minerals such as fish, beans, fruit and vegetables, are often absent from Chilean tables, candy and sugary foods occupy an important place in their diets with 63% eating more than the recommended amount of sugary foods.

Analysis of the results suggests that Chilean's poor performance on the healthy eating test is due to the fact that they eat very little of the key foods. For example, 53% said they eat seafood at least once a week, while 42% do so only once or twice a week.

Federico Leighton, director of the Centre for Molecular Nutrition and Chronic Diseases at the Catholic University said “The fact that only 5% of Chileans eat fish more than twice a week is a national disgrace”.

The same is true for beans. Just 10% of respondents eat beans more than twice a week.

“Despite their nutritional value long beans and lentils are mistakenly seen as “poor people's foods”, according to Leighton.

Consumption of olive oil, a product rich in monounsaturated fats that helps reduce cholesterol is also low among Chileans, with only 7% consuming three or more teaspoons per day. However, 58% said that they eat avocado, another source of healthy oils, several times a week.

Other positive news is that only 15% of respondents eat fatty or processed meat twice a week and 85% said that they have reduced the amount of this that they eat.

“That's what we are doing well in, but we can do better,” said Leighton.

The study also revealed that older people are more likely to have a healthier diet. If 46% of those between the ages of 20 and 30 have a poor diet, this percentage decreases with age, with just 9% of those over the age of 61 having a poor diet.

Despite this, Leighton warned that “bad eating habits go hand in hand with low levels of physical activity and smoking, behaviour which increases the risk of chronic disease.”

We now consistently have Golden Syrup at the Unimarc but that might not be the same throughout Chile, perhaps just an artifact of the Zona Franca and the local historical British influence. We can also get treacle from the Zona Franca. I wonder if Unimarc in the RM might...no, just remembered the state of customer service.
That might be so. In what section in Unimarc did you find the Golden Syrup? I will check on the Unimarc down the road.

Oh please, please, please let it be at my Unimarc, I'm checking this afternoon. Peanut butter and golden syrup on hot toast... Yum!

Maxine, did the custard powder come from the UK, or did your friend find it here? I was just thinking about trifle yesterday and home made custard is dull without custard powder.

For those who didn't grow up with Golden Syrup:
sorry, but g~j are a bit testy today...
we feel like being party-poopers...
maybe we're just a bit sad...
that no one has commented on the poor Chilean dietary study (see a few posts back)...
and ironically... the thread continued with one of the worst offenders - HFCS
so g~j will play this sugar game too...

caveat emptor...
but, no worries...
this probably will not deter any/all from enjoying your favorite sugar~fix.
:idea:

btw... just a small sample on HFCS... search on at your peril!
please... someone find some sugar industry research paper to refute all this... TYVM
