Guilt-free rendang, anyone?
Staff and students from TP’s School of Applied Science have developed the first low-GI ready-to-eat meals to be endorsed by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) as being suitable for those with diabetes, and bear the Healthier Choice label. Called Chef's Finest Low-GI, this new line of delicious ready-to-eat meals was recently launched by NTUC Foodfare.
The lower-glycaemic index (GI) meals come in five flavours: Nonya rendang chicken, Vietnamese lemongrass baked chicken, Teochew braised duck, braised soy chicken, and baked cheese seafood tomato rice. All the microwaveable frozen meals are made with brown rice and barley instead of white rice, and are certified halal.
Priced between $3.90 and $5.90, they are available at more than 20 NTUC FairPrice outlets.
