I'm an other Israeli, Ramat-Gan located. I've seen on this board and on other the need for a group eating LC and Kosher (more or less). But no one seems ready to "pick up the flag". And we do need a place to meet, where we can find recipe for meatballs without cheese and so on.

wish i did, to all of the above, but no, haven't seen any. I think you can get some varieties of diet RC cola that is sweetened with Splenda, but not all. And I haven't seen any low-carb breads. I did go into a health food shop in Jerusalem (on Emek Refaim) last week and saw that they had protein bars, and there's the shakes I mentioned above, but other than that, that's it. I've ordered some of the low carb tortillas online before, and they're quite good - they're also kosher. But it's expensive to get them delivered here, of course.

Shana Tova,

Deborah

I think there is an equivalent in Israel to Slenda. It is called Sucra diet, it is based on sucralose. You can find it (although it's well hidden!) in all supermarkets, super-pharm and health stores, in diet products section. It comes in unit bags, like sweet' lo. It's not cheap. 10 shekels for a box of 25 bags. Also I use sometimes a sliced bread called 7 grains light bread by Angel. It has 4.4 g carbs. in it and 2.9g diet. fibers. Even if you don't substract the fibers, it's not a bad counting. I'm not sure if we're allowed to substract because I read somewhere that only in the States the fibers are listed separately.
Hag same'ach and low-carb sweet new year!

How exciting - I just found this board, and it's great to know that there are others in the forum with the same difficulties and interests. The GMC stores have a protein powder - I just looked and didn't buy - and I'm not sure if it was kosher. I think it was about 140 shekel. Does anyone take supplements? - the ones Atkins suggest or Eades? Do you buy them here?
How about a prize for the one who comes up with a substitute for pork rinds?

Hiya,

I dont really keep kosher, but I am Israeli and I go to the kosher butcher at times to get Israeli products. I make my own tahina which is low carb. Also ptit crackers have 3.3g a cracker.

The kosher butcher here surprisingly has lots of low carb products from LC candy and cookies to muffins and rolls.

Shabat shalom,
I know that we are some Israelis on this list and/or on other lists. I was thinking we could perhaps unite once in a while and order stuff from the States. I would like for example to try the Keto cereal but the shipping is almost the price of the product.
Any comments?

Default More Israeli low carb products

Hi: I live in Mitzpe Ramon. My nearest big town is BeerSheva.
Here's what I have found:
In the supermarket: Sweet N Low Tablets..sold in 1000 tables in
a tall red tube. This has 0 carbs per 100 gr. A liquid low carb sweetner
is a Sucrazit by dietif (eng. translation), sold in a tall plastic
container. Telma makes a 0.5 carb per 100 ml parve whipping cream
that whips up great in 2 minutes (sold in a 250 ml container in the
refrigerator section.) The Marmalite company recently changed their
package design to bright red. Now making various flavors of "jello"
which I have not tried. They also make chocolate & vanilla puddings
and mousses. The carb counts are a little high for me, but I use 2
250 ml cups to their suggested one cup, mix according to directions
and fold in either 1/2 cup or a full container of whipped cream. I use
it either as a pudding...or I put 1/2 cup into a paper cup with an ice
cream stick and freeze it. It's my husband's favorite dessert...and it's
very low carb.

Don't forget tofu..also in refrigerator section; it's only .86 carbs per
ounce (35 grs). Also, pure cocoa powder, is low carb.

In the health food store I found: A soy milk made by an Israeli company
Zuriel in Eng....I buy the 1 percent without sugar. It's sweet because
it does have asolfime K (spelling??) which does not afford metabolism
and the box lists 0.5 carbs per 100 ml. Another product: Cavalier brand
chocolate. Sweetener is maltitol which also does not affect metabollism.
Per portion of 4 pieces, their label lists 6.5 grs of carbs.

Hope this helps. If you've found others, please let me know.

Tofu eater.

Hi,

I am living in Germany at the moment, but have lived in Israel (TA) for two years (1999 to 2001). I am in the middle of deciding whether I want to go back to Israel or to the UK, where I have also lived for quite some time (just under 9 years).

I would have thought that especially in Israel an LC WOE would be quite easy. Depending on the style of LC you do, I guess. You have a whole range of protine sources, that are also low in fat, which would suit SB, such as the 1/2% fat Cottege chese, yoghurts etc. As for the bread, there used to be this chain of breadmakers (I think they are called Lechem Ha Aretz or something along those lines anyway) that make wholemeal bread. OK, comming from Germany I am used to different kind of wholemeal. I used to buy the German imported bread (Pumpernickel kind), which you get in any suppermarket.

Shalom le-koooooolam!

I had no idea there were any other Izzies out there!

Although I'm originally from the Netherlands, I have lived in Israel for over 30 years!

All you guys seem to be mostly in the central region while I'm in the extreme North: Etsbah ha-Galil.

I haven't really searched very hard for LC products, just working with 'real' food! But I do appreciate all the info you posted here and I'll certainly look for those things, hopefully before I get bored with what I'm eating now!

We don't keep 'kosher', so that's one less headache!

Anyway, just wanted to say Mah nishma!

Lehit!

I'm looking for fellow dieters in Israel. Have a ton of questions about phase 1. Also want to know if anyone has an address of somewhere to buy splenda and stevia in Israel.
