Ok I am back on the beach. I am wondering about a couple of new products out on the market if they are PH1 friendly

No Sugar added Tapioca
No Sugar added Jello pudding

I just need to know so I can plan well in advance for those sweet cravings that come at 8pm!!
Thanks

I bet they all contain cornstarch which is not allowed on Phase I. I can't find the ingredients via Google. Perhaps you could post them.

You CAN have SF Jellos. I sometimes make them by dissolving the powder in 1/2 cup of hot water and then adding a cup and a half of milk of yogurt. They taste very "pudd" . :lol:

I don't think tapioca is allowed. I'm pretty sure it is a starch but I can't find my GFGC book right now. My box of tapioca (I used to use it in crockpot recipes) says it is 100% tapioca. Nothing else is listed on the ingredients. I know there is a reason that I haven't been using it since I started on SB.

The pudding does have starches which aren't allowed in phase 1 but you can have them in phase 2. I prefer to make my own so that I can use skim milk. I have yet to find the no sugar added pudding in a skim milk format.

This might help:

Tapioca is basically a root starch derived from the cassava, or yuca plant. It's often used to thicken soups and sweeten the flavor of baked goods, and it makes a dandy pudding.
The cassava plant is native to South America and the West Indies, where its thick, fibrous roots are used in a variety of forms: bread flour, laundry starch, an alcoholic brew, and of course, tapioca pudding.

Doesn't sound like a Phase I food.

Yeah, they both have modified food starch, making them Phase 2.
