Does your quark squeak when chewed? Ours here in Canada is squeaky and I am not sure if our cheese curd here is the same as your quark there.

No it's not squeaky, it's like thick yogurt.

That looks nothing like our cheese curds here, it looks more like thick Greek yogurt.

Yes it does, only it's very low in fat. It's used in many desserts here as well. In fact we have berry quark for dessert today and then it's mixed with whipped cream and berries.

Hey, there's squeaky cheese fo real. 13.gif

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leip%C3%A4juusto

Quote:Leipäjuusto (bread cheese) or juustoleipä, which is also known in the United States as Finnish squeaky cheese, is a fresh cheese traditionally made from cow's beestings, rich milk from a cow that has recently calved. Reindeer or even goat milk can also be used. Commercially available versions are typically made from cow's milk, and they lack some of the colour and flavour because of this. The cheese originally comes from Southern Ostrobothnia, Northern Finland, and Kainuu.

Oh, yeah, there certainly is and it is delicious.

Now what about aspartame?

Quote:Sweeteners are villains — and aspartame is the most villainous of all

You've heard this claim a lot... probably from that darn hippie you used to work with, who hissed a warning that it'll give you cancer every time you drank aspartame-sweetened Diet Coke.

Aspartame remains darkened by a shadow of suspicion even though it's one the most comprehensively reviewed food additives in the world. Its acceptable daily intake is 40mg per kilogram of bodyweight per day, a limit you'd likely have to drink more than a dozen cans of Diet Coke to exceed.

There's no strong evidence any other rogue in the sweetener line-up is particularly harmful, either.

"The body of science that indicates that intense sweeteners are safe and effective is based primarily on randomised controlled trials in humans, which are the 'gold standard'," Barclay says... which means we're pretty certain they're safe to consume in reasonable quantities.

It just goes on and on...and on.

I've had it once, drank a diet coke and passed out cold.  damned.gif
I'm extraordinarily sensitive to the wood alcohol, formaldehyde poison cocktail that occurs as the body breaks it down.
Odd, but some of the the heaviest people I've ever been around drink diet soft drinks.

I don't like the taste of diet sodas (or is that the aspartame?), anyway I don't drink sodas at all, but it is interesting how this particular sweetener is studied so much and the results are always the same - that it's not a baddie.

Well they're wrong, it's not good for you.

In addition, sweet things are normally associated with instant energy (sugar). When you ingest a 0 calorie sweetener your body is not getting the expected energy boost that your mouth signals will happen. Your body will insist on getting energy and produce a hunger response and you end up eating more.

Quote:As of 2017 evidence does not support a benefit for weight loss or in diabetes with some data finding an association with weight gain and heart disease risks.

Nonnutritive sweeteners appear linked with increased weight

I was thinking about the link between the two, and it seems to me if people are seeking sweet things to eat, that they would probably be eating all the wrong foods any way and/or junk foods, so they should be looking at choices and/or lack of exercise.

Sugar is highly addictive and it's not very easy to quit it. Refined carbs are basically sugar too as it turns into glucose very quickly.

I think one problem is that this type of food is cheap and tastes good to most people.

Yes of course, I don't think we'd be here unless we'd be hardwired for something that doesn't provide energy.
