As we all know, understanding food, portion sizes and nutritional content are vital to achieving a well balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. It sounds easy, but keeping tabs on the nutritional content of the food we eat can be harder than you would think.
Salter has worked hard to cut through the confusion and provide the tools to help make the most informed food choices possible.
Salter’s NEW Nutri-Weigh Slim Electronic Scale accurately calculates the nutritional value of 999 foods and simultaneously displays their nutritional results on the screen:
Ok this is what the product says it does and I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised.
Salter's Nutri-Weigh Slim Electronic Scale can be used so you know what your eating, what portion size you are eating aswell as keeping you up to speed with your nutritional intake.
I gave the product to two friends one who are dieting at the present and one who has diabetes. She told me about a site on the internet that had already reviewed the electronic scale and that is where she had heard about it, so she was thrilled when I asked her to try it out.
This is what the Diabetes Site had to say
For diabetics the biggest boon is the assessment the scales can also give of the carbohydrate content of that food.
With all the nutritional values of your food - including the carbs for low carb counters - in hand then you should be on-track for keeping your diabetes under control too. These scales can help you keep tabs on making the most informed food choices possible.
The scales calculate the nutritional value of 999 foods from a national food database based on British eating habits, simultaneously displaying their nutritional results (carbohydrates, calories, fat, protein, salt and cholesterol values).
The scales memory function enables you to total up the nutritional values for all the components of a meal.
This can then be assed by day or week so if you want to stick to a 200-carbs-a-day regime then it should be possible to do so. The Salter Nutri-Weigh Slim also comes with a quick reference guide to look up individual foods. The scales double up as kitchen scale as well as a being a dietary computer (including measuring liquids).
I was immensely impressed with the product and have already started to recommend it to a number of friends who are trying to eat healthier.
The scale retails at £44.99 and is available from department stores, supermarkets and independent cooking shops and on-line at www.salterhousewares.com, many might think a little pricey but we think well worth the money if your going to make use of it.
