With scrutiny on public health at an all-time high, this October might just be the most important National Cholesterol Month there’s ever been.
That’s why for this month’s Erudus Podcast, host Andrew is speaking to Lynne Garton, Dietetic Advisor for HEART UK about cholesterol, and exploring ways that frontline food service and catering establishments can serve cholesterol friendly foods without sacrificing taste.
They also discuss what cholesterol is, how it affects our bodies, and drill down into the role that diet plays on cholesterol. Andrew also had the chance to ask about the HEART UK Product Approval Certification and what the criteria are as well as the process to become certified.
And of course, we go through some of the biggest news stories in the foodservice industry right now, and explore how they might affect and impact those of us in it.
This month that includes :
- Supermarket giant Tesco hoping to capitalise on the growing demand for vegan options by targeting a 300% rise in sales of their plant-based offerings.
- An estimated 24 million Halloween pumpkins are destined to become part of the growing food waste problem in the UK.
