FSA launches major consumer campaign on salt

first_imgThe Food Standards Agency (FSA) has kicked off a massive campaign to educate consumers about the ‘hidden salt’ in foods such as bread, sandwiches and pizza.The campaign, which goes live this week, features television advertising focused on pizza and sandwiches, and radio and print advertising on bread. It urges consumers to pay closer attention to the salt levels of foods they buy and to choose foods that are lower in salt.The thrust of the campaign is based on survey results that reveal 77% of consumers are unaware that bread and breakfast cereals are among the top salt-contributing foods in people’s diet, according the FSA. “We’re not suggesting people stop eating or even cut down on bread or breakfast cereals, as they are an important part of a healthy diet. But we are saying take a look at the labels to find one that is lower in salt,” commented Rosemary Hignett, head of nutrition at the FSA.The FSA also commented that “supermarket own-label versions of some foods, including bread, are often lower in salt than the branded versions”.The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has voiced its support for food manufacturers who have reformulated recipes to lower salt. “Our members are totally committed to helping consumers eat more healthily – and reformulation is just one of the ways in which we will continue to make a real difference,” said director of communications Julian Hunt.To read the full story and the industry’s reaction to this campaign, read the next issue of British Baker, out 9 October.last_img read more

Bravo falls cheaply, Hodge hits fifty as India dominate

first_imgCMC –Left-hander Darren Bravo’s form remained a worry after he failed against India here Sunday, as West Indies A suffered a batting collapse on the penultimate day of their three-day match at Coolidge Cricket Ground.In desperate need of confidence ahead of next week’s start of the opening Test against India, Bravo lasted 45 minutes and 21 balls for his 11 before edging a drive at seamer Umesh Yadav to second slip.The 30-year-old has been named in the Test squad but is in the middle of a wretched run of form. He scraped 36 runs from five innings in the Ireland Tri-Nations Series back in May before scoring 19 and 0 in his only two innings at the ICC World Cup.In his first Test series in 28 months following a public falling out with Cricket West Indies, Bravo managed only 59 runs from five innings against England earlier this year.While Bravo failed, opener Kavem Hodge stepped up to top-score with 51 as West Indies A, responding to India’s 297 for six declared overnight, were dismissed for 181 in their first innings.Captain Jahmar Hamilton struck 33 while veteran left-hander Jonathan Carter chipped in with 26, but the remainder of the Windies A line up struggled.The hosts failed to muster any significant partnerships and the best was a 26-run stand for the fourth wicket between Hodge and Jason Mohammed (6).All told, Hodge faced 100 balls in 141 minutes, hitting eight fours before he was fifth out with the score on 94, lbw to seamer Ishant Sharma in the fifth over after lunch, playing around a full length delivery.Hamilton got a start, striking four fours in a 72-ball knock before he was last out while Carter also got in, lashing two fours and a six in a 35-ball innings before falling to a catch at silly point off left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav.Umesh Yadav (3-19), fellow fast bowler Ishant (3-21) and left-arm spinner Kuldeep (3-35) all picked up three wickets each.Batting a second time, India got an unbeaten 48 from Hanuma Vihari as they reached 84 for one at the close.ScoreboardINDIA 1st Innings 297 for six decl.WEST INDIES “A” 1st InningsJ Solozano c Rahul b Ishant Sharma 9K Hodge lbw b Ishant Sharma 51B King c wkpr Pant b Ishant Sharma 4DM Bravo c Rahul b Umesh Yadav 11J Mohammed run out 6J Carter c Agarwal b Kuldeep Yadav 26*+J Hamilton c Umesh Yadav b Kuldeep Yadav 33R Powell c Pujara b Umesh Yadav 16R Shepherd c Rahane b Umesh Yadav 1K Pierre b Kuldeep Yadav 17K Harding not out 4Extras (w1, nb2) 3TOTAL (all out, 56.1 overs) 181Fall of wickets: 1-16, 2-30, 3-51, 4-77, 5-94, 6-115, 7-136, 8-140, 9-164, 10-181.Bowling: Ishant Sharma 8-1-21-3 (w1), Bumrah 11-0-45-0 (nb2); Umesh Yadav 10-4-19-3; Saini 6-0-20-0; Jadeja 12-2-41-0; Kuldeep Yadav 9.1-1-35-3INDIA 2nd InningsM Agarwal c wkpr Hamilton b Shepherd 13*A Rahane not out 20H Vihari not out 48Extras (lb2, nb1) 3TOTAL (1 wkt, 35 overs) 84Fall of wickets: 1-22Bowling: Mindley 4-2-8-0, Harding 5-0-15-0 (nb1), Shepherd 9-6-22-0, Carter 5-2-3-1, Pierre 7-1-26-0, Hodge 4-1-7-0, Mohammed 1-0-1-0.Position: India lead by 200 runs with nine second innings wickets standinglast_img read more

Syracuse wide receiver Cameron Jordan leaves program

first_img Published on July 27, 2020 at 2:32 pm Contact Adam: [email protected] | @_adamhillman Comments The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.Wide receiver Cameron Jordan has left the Syracuse football program, SU Athletics confirmed to Syracuse.com and 247sports. The program did not give a reason for his departure. The redshirt junior was left off the updated roster that SU released Monday. With the program’s loss of Trishton Jackson and Sean Riley — Jackson a year early to the NFL and Riley to graduation — Jordan was primed to compete for a starting job. He caught three balls for 20 yards in his first two years, but was listed atop the Orange’s depth chart for outside receiver in March. Syracuse this season returns wide receivers Taj Harris, Anthony Queeley, Russell Thompson-Bishop, Ed Hendrix, Sharod Johnson, Nykeim Johnson and Courtney Jackson. Harris and Johnson were listed as the two other starters in the spring and have the most yards and receptions.Hendrix, a redshirt sophomore, was listed as the second string to Jordan in March’s version of the depth chart. He’s yet to appear in a game for the Orange after missing his first two seasons recovering from separate knee injuries. In his senior year of high school, Hendrix totaled 27 receptions for 585 yards and 14 touchdowns for H.D. Woodson (Washington, D.C.). AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse is positioned to enter training camp as early as Aug. 6. The Orange entered phase three of their summer workouts in late July, now operating as cohesive offensive and defensive units, and held their first walkthrough last Thursday. center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

3 Big Things: Luka Doncic exposed the real Warriors in dominant performance

first_img1. Steve Kerr and the Warriors did cruel things to 20-year-old rookie Ja Morant Tuesday night in Memphis, but as I wrote after the game, their tactics there — in arguably their best win of the year — weren’t going to work against 20-year-old Luka Doncic and the Mavericks.It took roughly two minutes for that to prove true Wednesday in Dallas.As ESPN’s Tim MacMahon noted on Twitter, if you ever wanted to know what Doncic would do against a G-League team, you found out in the Mavericks’ 142-94 …last_img read more

Jeremy Goyings, Oct. 10

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest We have had nice weather and have been getting a lot of work one. I am on a parts run this morning. We started on Wednesday and we’ve got about 500 acres of beans off now and we are over halfway with getting wheat in the ground. It has been slow going in some places but the cool weather has given us the chance to get some good night runs in.The beans have been all across the board I have had everything from 30 to 50 bushels. Fifty and some decimal points is as high as I have gotten it to go and I had two fields go there. The highs we’ve had were about what I expected but I didn’t think we’d have beans as low as the 30-bushel range. We have higher dirt, which in Paulding County is about six inches higher than everything else. The beans shut down early on those higher spots and that really hurt the yields.We won’t get back to corn until we finish up with these food grade non-GM beans. They are at 11% to 12.5% moisture but there are still green leaves. It looks like silage coming out of the back of the combine.We have three varieties of beans. We have been following the combine planting wheat and we will be strip-tilling for corn too. The next variety of beans we will get to will be our last wheat ground.We have not done any corn since the 100 acres that was dropping ears. So far it looks like the stalks are still holding in the rest of the corn and it’s not dropping ears. It looks like we will have a nice stretch of weather coming, too.last_img read more
