Spotting Healthy Food Swaps – Consumer Reports

Despite what you may have heard, trading your morning shredded wheat or oatmeal for a grain-free cereal isn’t necessarily a healthy food swap. “These cereals can make you think that there’s something wrong with eating grains, but that’s not the case,” Keating says. “Many studies show that including whole grains in your diet reduces the risk of heart disease, cancer, and more, and regular cereal can be a convenient way to get them.”

Still, some grain-free cereals can be good for you, such as grain-free granolas. These are typically made from a combination of nuts and seeds—which provide healthy fats, fiber, protein, and nutrients such as magnesium and potassium—in place of traditional oats. Just be mindful of added sugars and portion sizes. Ideally, a serving should have no more than 4 grams of added sugars. (Wildway Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Granola is one example of granola with zero added sugars.) “But the serving size on the package is often just between one-fourth and one-half cup,” Keating says. It can look pretty in your bowl, so remember that if you double the serving, you double the calories, fat and sugars.

Other grain-free cereals are often made with cassava, potato, and tapioca starches, or chickpea or lentil flour instead of grains. With the exception of the bean flour, which has protein and potassium, these ingredients don’t have much nutritional value. A recent CR test evaluated six grain-free cereals. None were flavor standouts, and only one, Forager Project Organic Grain-Free Os Cinnamon, received top scores for nutrition.

WHO guides support limited food testing in the Pacific

There is a varied and often limited ability to test food and manage foodborne hazards in the Pacific, according to WHO.

The World Health Organization (WHO) looked at the food analysis capacity of Pacific Island countries. These nations are often vulnerable to food safety incidents and emergencies because of their geography and dependence on food imports.

The costs of establishing and operating food laboratories are relatively high. Considering the limited number of food samples tested in most Pacific Island countries, it is not practical for them to have sophisticated labs. Food is rarely tested to protect domestic consumers. It is generally only analyzed after it has become the potential source of a complaint or an illness.

WHO said it was crucial appropriate labs were identified prior to a food safety incident or emergency. A guide lists considerations for selecting referral labs and submitting samples to them.

Several nations have implemented sampling and testing of environmental water and fish and fishery products to facilitate the export of fish products. Fiji and Solomon Islands were among the first to undertake such routine analyzes to meet European Union requirements.

Country and pathogen examples
Diarrheal agents are the biggest cause of foodborne illness in the Western Pacific region with norovirus, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E. coli among the most common pathogens, affecting millions of people annually. The region also reports the highest death rate globally as a result of foodborne parasites.

No food testing capacity is available in American Samoa, Cook Islands, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Tonga, Tuvalu, or Wallis and Futuna. Micronesia, the Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, and Vanuatu do have a laboratory developing the capacity for food testing.

Fiji, French Polynesia, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, and Solomon Islands have significant lab capacity, being able to test food and water for a range of biological and chemical hazards. However, no labs can detect viral agents or foodborne parasites in food.

Countries associated with the US submit clinical referral samples to the Hawaii State Department of Health and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Palau usually refers to food samples from Korea, the Philippines, and the United States.

Yersinia enterocolitica is detectable in food only in New Caledonia and Vibrio cholerae in food only in Samoa. The most widespread chemical hazard testing capacity is histamine in fish. One lab in French Polynesia said it could detect ciguatoxin.

None of the labs reviewed reported the ability to test for marine toxins such as domoic acid, lipophilic shellfish toxins, lyngbyatoxin, saxitoxin, and tetrodotoxin. Arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury can be detected in several countries.

The guide covers accreditation, costs, sample collection and transportation requirements, and border control issues. It also supports the implementation of the Regional Framework for Action on Food Safety in the Western Pacific from 2018 to 2025.

Lab capacity on the radar of the Codex committee
Meanwhile, the FAO/WHO Coordinating Committee for North America and the South West Pacific met earlier this year in Nadi, Fiji.

Emerging issues expected to impact food safety in the region in the next five to 10 years include limited support to manage food regulatory systems; climate changes; innovative food technologies; risk communications; increased foodborne disease transmission; pesticide residues on food crops; antimicrobial resistance; indigenous foods; and labeling of new and novel foods.

Fiji, Kiribati, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, and Tonga also emphasized the need for capacity building in food safety, including analytical support to food analysis labs.

A lack of lab capacity was highlighted by several members and the need for regional collaboration regarding analytical work was identified. The sustainability of national labs in small island countries was mentioned as a challenge.

Florida man charged with ‘demonic’ murder of Uber Eats driver who was dismembered after delivering food | US News

An Uber Eats driver was dismembered after a “demonic” murder while delivering food, authorities have said.

Oscar Solis Jr. is accused of killing the driver during a delivery to his home in Pasco County in Florida.

The victim’s remains were found in Solis’s house in bin bags and a cooler, which also contained a receipt with the suspect’s name on it, police documents say.

Pasco County sheriff Chris Nocco said: “This was a horrific crime of passion. This was demonic. What he did was demonic.”

Solis faces charges of murder while engaged in a robbery, failing to register as a convicted felon and for a parole violation, jail records show.

He moved to Florida three months ago after serving four years in an Indiana prison for an assault and burglary conviction.

A mugshot shows Solis’s face covered with tattoos and Mr Nocco says he was affiliated in Indiana with the violent MS-13 gang.

In Florida, the 6ft4, 22-stone Solis worked in security at a strip club, according to the police papers.

Evidence collected in the case includes blood found in various places around the house and a key fob belonging to the victim that was found on Solis’s dresser, on top of his wallet.

The victim – who has not been named – was reported missing by his wife after he did not return home from his uber Eats deliveries.

Uber told investigators the driver’s last reported location was at Solis’s home.

The victim’s car was found abandoned a short distance away, and inside were a bin bag containing blood-soaked rags and towels, a food delivery bag like one the victim carried and an employment card with Solis’s name on it, according to police documents.

Investigators also obtained CCTV from the house showing the victim making the food delivery and two men later carrying heavy bin bags outside.

The second man, who worked as a driver for Solis, has not been charged.
