Home-Delivered Meal Line for Diabetes Patients
By Juliann Schaeffer

For many diabetes patients, mealtimes often present the challenge of balancing carbs, protein, and fat. and more people are facing such a challenge every day. With the total prevalence of diabetes at roughly 8% of the population, another 1.9 million adults are joining these ranks annually, according to data from the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet.

To take the angst out of meal planning for diabetes patients, a new line of fresh-made, home-delivered meals is available. Mom’s Meals, which delivers diabetes-friendly entrées to any address in the 48 contiguous states, started when the company founders saw a need to help aging moms (hence the name) or other family members recuperating after a hospital stay. The company evolved when it realized that patients with chronic illnesses could benefit from the meals, too.

Field Notes
Gluten-, Lactose-Free Ingredient Substitute Found
for Low-Fat White Sauces

Consumers are increasingly demanding the development of ready-to-eat gluten- and lactose-free food products that meet their needs and help improve their health. A recent study in the Journal of Food Science shows how new white sauce formulations are being created to meet these demands.

Consumers with celiac disease often find that gluten-free products are of inferior quality compared with their traditional, non–gluten-free counterparts. Traditional white sauce is made with milk, flour or starch, oil, and salt. The study looks at how the use of vegetable protein sources and gluten-free starches can make a type of sauce suitable for vegetarian, lactose-intolerant, and celiac disease consumers.
