Canned Foods For Special Diets Recipe
1 no ingredients
The cost of commercially canned special diet food often prompts
interest in preparing these products at home. Some low-sugar and
low-salt foods may be easily and safely canned at home. However the
color, flavor and texture of these foods may be different than
expected and be less acceptable.
CANNING WITHOUT SUGAR
In canning regular fruits without sugar, it is very important to
select fully ripe but firm fruits of the best quality. Prepare these
as described for hot-packs for each fruit, but use water or regular
unsweetened fruit juices instead of sugar syrup. (For more
information see additional publications for individual fruits.) Juice
made from the fruit being canned is best. Blends of unsweetened
apple, pineapple, and white grape juice are also good for filling
over solid fruit pieces. Adjust headspaces and lids and use the
processing recommendations given for regular fruits. Add sugar
substitutes, if desired, when serving.
CANNING WITHOUT SALT (REDUCED SODIUM)
To can tomatoes, vegetables, meats, poultry, and seafood, follow the
normal procedures for canning, but omit the salt. In these products,
salt seasons the food but is not necessary to ensure its safety. Add
salt substitutes, if desired, when serving.

Food Tips of the Week
If you enjoy eating, but want to lose weight and also enhance your overall well-being, without doubt you ought to start a carefully calculated healthy dietary regime. In theory, this ought to take in 5 measures of grains and vegetables on a daily basis and also embrace the right blend of proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
Some lower carbohydrate diet tips:
* Know what is in your food
Be sceptical of advertizing that claims to be 'low carb' - check the nutritional information figures on the back of the tin or package. Quite a few are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.
* It is possible to make really nice smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
Yes, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you love smoothies you can make perfectly acceptable alternatives by using reduced carbohydrate yogurt and fruit. Of course, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole of the fruit as you need the fiber.
