Posts Tagged ‘Johnno’s Island Gourmet’

To whom it may concern,
Had the Johnno’s Pasta Sauce a while back. Made it for my parents who’d purchased it. Let me tell you how our family dinner went.

After our first mouthful we noticed it seemed incredibly sweet. A look at the jar explained it. Weighing it 550g with 11% sugar, my simple high school maths has it at over 60 grams of sugar, or about 4 tablespoons. Whilst I admit that maybe between 3 people, 1.33 tablespoons of sugar on one plate might be excessive, I’d argue that even between 4 people a tablespoon of sugar with pasta is a little over the top. But the number of serves in the jar is listed as 2!

No wonder we couldn’t taste anything else in the product. Maybe it’d be cheaper if you remove all other ingredients and just leave in the sugar and just add water.

I think one thing we could agree on is that the Tasmanian health system is in a bit of a state of crisis. If you could see your way to helping lowering the incidents of obesity, diabetes and other related medical conditions, I think we might all be a little better off.

Whilst I do try to support Tasmanian businesses as much as possible, I cannot foresee myself purchasing this product and will closely look – and advise my mates as to look as well – at any other labels of all other “Island Gourmet” products before buying.

Yours,

&c.
