Smile Useful ANZ Links

Hello everybody.

I thought it might be a good idea to have some useful links all together.

*Nutritional counts (esp carbs!) of Oz products www.dietclub.com.au/foods/

*Recipe unit conversion charts here.

*From Food Standards Australia New Zealand food additive numbers.

And if I can just ask everybody to please enter any great LC-friendly restaurants, local shops or chain stores that have LC products into the Low Carb Yellow Pages. These can be found under "Tools" on the top green menu bar. We should be able to build up a good Aus/NZ database of products and places.

Of course, please add any other links you can think of.

Rosebud

The last unit conversion link I had here was no longer working, so I hope this link to Conversion and Ingredient Tables lasts a little longer.

Hi Lyn,

All I can imagine is that you have left one of the spaces empty. Have you tried again?
Your entry won't appear straight away, because the webmaster checks them all first. That's because at first some idiots decided that would be a great way to cause trouble by making inappropriate entries.

Default Yellow pages

Hi Rosebud,
I tried again tonight to put the information in the yellow pages without success. I get the same message "data incomplete" The only box I left blank was the country because there was no way of choosing Australia, it wasn't listed to choose. I thought it shouldn't matter as it was optional. So if you have any more suggestions?

Cheers Lyn

G'day Lyn,

Have another look matey. The only optional choices are province/state, which only apply to the US and Canada, and your name.
Country is at the top, and Australia is the choice at the top of the list.

Cheers.

Roz

Urrgghh! I'm sorry you're having so much trouble, Lyn!

Did you put "Australia" this time?

Default wheat gluten

Thanks to Rosebud for posting the sites for low carb recipes. I am going to try some of the pancakes as I am fed up of eating eggs for breakfast. Can somebody tell me what wheat gluten is as I have tried to purchase and can only get gluten flour. Is this the same.

Thanks
Kate

Kate,
Gluten flour is the same thing. I use Lowan brand which is widely available in major supermarkets.

But you are in luck. You can actually buy low carb bread in Perth

Go to:

Bon Appetit.

I'm from NZ. I was wondering if anyone knows where we can buy food suitable for the atkins diet. I know its available online but I prefer a shop I can walk into. My friend in the states buys the bread and I want to know if its available here too and what else might be.

Thanks Nzkiwiana
