Question Product 'Wish List' for UK low carbers

Dear Tamarian, initiator of this forum ...

I am in the process of doing some market research and collating a low carbers "wish list" on behalf of a UK manufacturer (they wish to remain anonymous at the moment). So, I am emailing low carb list owners to see if they would kindly ask their UK members what products they would most like to see developed by a UK company and available on supermarket shelves.

Would you be agreeable to my posting questions on this forum for your UK members?

Obviously all feedback we get is very helpful and will hopefully lead to a better availability of low carb products for us UK low carbers!

I await your reply. thank you, Claire

PS I see it is possible to 'post a poll' I have no experience of this, however would it be better to use this facility? your advice would be appreciated.

Crackers, of some sort. I miss crunchy and I miss something to put things on, that is quick and easy.

Dear clarea63 -

Thank you for you courage in taking on this project. Many of us across the pond have noticed with concern how negative the British press has been about Low Carbohydrate Diets. Those of us who have reviewed the science, and have witnessed the improvements in our own bodies and minds, feel dismayed that our allies may be missing out on this amazing way-of-eating.

And by the way, in my dreams this Yank longs for a low-carb beer from Samuel Smith's Yorkshire brewery.

Best regards,

Frank (gotbeer)

Low carb stir fry sauces - all the ones on the supermarket shelves have far to much sugar in them.
Cavaleir chocolate bars (praline, mocha) - these are the best low carb chocolate product I've found, but mainly only available online.
Low carb crisps
Low carb cakes - these are available in Holland

Very carb (and lower salt) tomato ketchup (hurry up Heinz)
Some sort of crispbread/cracker to put marmite on for a snack
M & S ready meals and prepared "cook yourself type" that are low carb (they do a big range of low fat meals) but so many of their prepared products such as sandwich fillings, gucamole, dips are full of maize starch which make them unsuitable for low carbers.

A decent cheese biscuit, similar to water biscuits, made with natural saturated animal (butter, lard, dripping) or vegetable fat (palm or coconut oil). No added flavour, colour.

Milk and 70% plain chocolate made with splenda.

Organic, if possible.
