Scott says they deserve a pat on the back.“Farmers in general and definitely people who are good stewards of the land don’t always take time to pat themselves on the back, and so our goal in this is to recognize them and give them some credit for what they’ve done. This is the best of the best that we have in Indiana. It’s a good group and they’re just being great stewards of the land.”From Adams to Hendricks and Howard County, and from Posey and Knox to LaGrange County, farmers this year came from all over the state to receive their award from Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch and Indiana Farm Bureau President Randy Kron.The link to the recipients at the IASWCD website is here.Scott is board president of the Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts.(RFF group photo from IASWCD) Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Sep 12, 2018 last_img read more

The cereal offenders

first_imgEmail Print Facebook NewsThe cereal offendersBy admin – May 21, 2009 624 Twitter Linkedincenter_img WhatsApp It’s pitched as the most important meal of the day, but with only eight per cent of cereals getting a green light for healthy sugar levels, many of us are waking up to poor nutrition as the results of a new report have shown. Adults and children have a hard job finding a healthy start to the day, as cereal companies continue to add large amounts of sugar to their top brands. The report showed that 31 cereals out of the 100 examined contained more than four teaspoons of sugar per recommended serving and only one of the 28 cereals specifically marketed to children was found not to be high in sugar (but was still high in salt).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A UK brand of chocolate crackles topped the sweet mountain with more sugar per serving than a Cadbury’s Chocolate Flake, followed closely by Kellogg’s Coco Pops Moons and Stars, Frosties and Ricicles which were over a third (37 per cent) pure sugar.Many brands thought of as healthy, such as Kellogg’s All Bran, Bran Flakes and Special K did little to bowl over the researchers. Starting the day with Special K, for example, would be almost the sugar equivalent to waking up to a bowl containing a portion of Tesco’s Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Ice Cream.Entitled, “Going Against the Grain”, the report analysed 100 leading cereals. Although sugar levels remained high, positive changes could be seen with reductions in salt content. Despite this, 100g of Tesco Special Flakes was still found to contain the same amount of salt as 100g of Walkers Ready Salted crisps.The report went on to highlight that other issues included confusing labelling, and questionable health and nutrition claims allowing some companies to promote a wholesome image for their brand, while failing to emphasise the high sugar or salt contentSue Davies. a senior figure at Which?, said; “Breakfast is important, and some cereals deserve their healthy image, but most simply don’t. It’s especially shocking that almost all those targeted at children are less healthy. With such little choice, it’s a daily struggle for consumers.“Cereal manufacturers need to wake up to the fact that people want to eat healthily and provide them with the means to do so by reducing sugar and salt levels and making labelling clearer. With over a billion pounds spent on cereals every year, it’s time they rose to the occasion. ”In January 2009, the researchers bought 100 cereals from the main supermarkets. Products were chosen based on their current market share. They excluded hot cereals and mueslis from the research because, despite growth in sales in recent years, they remain a small percentage of the market overall. They looked at the amount of fat, saturates, sugar and salt that the 100 cereals contained and applied industry standards of labelling where possible.

Injury scare for Zawraq

first_img The Dermot Weld-trained runner is among the leading fancies for the Epsom showpiece but after completing a satisfactory piece of work, he was found to be slightly lame on his return to the yard. “He did a bit of work this morning with Pat Smullen up, he did it fine and walked back to the yard OK but when the head lad came back into his box, he just thought he took a lame step,” said Angus Gold, racing manager to owner Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum . Connections of Zawraq have warned the colt is not certain to line up in Saturday’s Investec Derby after suffering an injury scare on Tuesday morning. Press Associationcenter_img Zawraq is prominent in the Derby ante-post lists after impressively winning his two starts to date. Gold said: “He did his work fine, had a pick of grass back at the yard, but they just felt he wasn’t 100 per cent when they trotted him up. “He has been taken to the vets for an X-ray and scans and they came back fine, they didn’t show up anything apart from a small mark on the inside of his near-fore cannon bone, so hopefully he has just given himself a knock. “He’s being iced and hopefully he’s just given himself a bang, but we will obviously know more over the next 36 hours or so. “It was his final piece of work so he’s done everything he needs to do and is a fit horse. “We are hoping to get him to the Derby but we just wanted to make everyone aware of what has happened. “We’ll see if anything comes to light in the next 36 hours.” last_img read more
