As we wave goodbye to the world's fastest year (or was it just me?), it's a great time to reflect on the year we leave behind and set goals for the year ahead. A highlight for the Healthy Food Guide team in 2018 was meeting so many of our wonderful readers at the Gluten Free Shows in Sydney and Melbourne. We'll be on the road again in 2019, so stay tuned for places and times. Another proud moment for HFG was recording a huge 80 per cent increase in our readership — all thanks to you!

your say

Always learning I’m always very appreciative of the ‘How much is in that…’ articles in Healthy Food Guide magazine. Every month my team and I gather around and I quiz them on each of the food items. We all walk away having learned something new about nutrition and go on to make different shopping choices as a result. Tracey Fox, NSW Gold star! I really loved the recent Healthy Food Guide Awards (Nov, 2018). It’s great to know that a dietitian reviewed all of the entrants beforehand, and I love to have new recommendations about new foods to try. Thanks for all your hard work. I imagine there is a lot of products to sift through and review before voting begins!

ask the expert

Q My daughter has just been diagnosed with coeliac disease. I am confused as to whether glucose syrup is considered gluten free when the ingredients list says it is derived from wheat. Stephanie, via email Trying to navigate a gluten-free diet can sometimes be tricky, especially deciphering the fine print on the back of a food label. About one in 70 Australians has coeliac disease, an autoimmune condition where the body has an abnormal reaction to gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats). The only treatment is a strict gluten-free diet, but that’s not as simple as cutting out bread, pasta and cake. Gluten is common throughout the food supply chain, so reading food labels is essential. As a coeliac myself, I really understand your confusion. Learning the label…
