Heinz are not under any obligation to make diabetic-friendly foods. When my doctor warned me of my condition I used the internet to find diabetic versions of my favorite forbidden foods. Reply

Douggie says: When in Hospital, they knew of my condition and on leaving they gave the names of Companies in Australia that produce Diabetic Food, the only problem is that Heinz owns all these companies. I love Tomatoes, Strawberries etc, but they are harmfull to me.
When you read the Diabetic Cook Book and you are NOT a State Pensioner, you can not afford there options for Cooking.
The Europeans make a wide veriety of Diabetic Foods, because they have Full Human Rights, under there laws companies are finned for Discriminating against Diabetics. Here we do not have these Laws, We don't even have Human Rights. Reply

DeNiro says: My doctor only told me to reduce my fat and sugar consumption as much as possible. He never said to avoid any fruits or vegetables except mangoes as these are pretty high in sugar. Do you know why you were told to avoid strawberries and tomatoes? These are very nutritious and I eat them most days but will check them out with my doctor on my next visit. Reply

mysteron347 says: What total rubbish!

First, whereas GC is owned by Heinz (as is Watties, Original Juice, Greenseas, Cottees, HP) IXL is owned by Coca-Cola Amatil (along with SPC, Ardmona)

Second is you've contradicted yourself. You say that Heinz OWNS all of the companies on this list you were given - but your original assertion was that Heinz does not "have" diabetic food. Now which way is is?

And third - I can find no evidence whatever of Heinz being fined for alleged discrimination. Although I wouldn't put it past the lunatics we have dictating our lives, it makes no sense whatever. The courts would be applying penalties to any manufacturer of food products that didn't produce a version suitable for each and every different self-declared victim group. You'd need certification for diabetcs, phenylketonurics, coeliacs, a hundred and one different allergy-triggers, halal, kosher, vegan - the list is endless. And of course, Heinz persists in this - so would be racking up the fines daily.

Would the courts decide that Kraft is disciminating and has to produce peanut butter for people with a peanut allergy?

As I diabetic of many years standing, I believe the key is to eat more naturally. Small amounts often rather than a big meal in the evening. I don't avoid tomatoes - at 59c/can, it's about all I can afford anyway - and I'm a pensioner, but not a "State Pensioner."

But I avoid Heinz for other reasons. They still owe me $3 rebate from a promotion they ran 15 years ago. Haven't knowingly bought anything they produce since. And of course, they closed their Kyabram tomato-processing factory but dismantled it rather than allowing the local community to take ownership. Reply

mermaid says: Some forms of diabetes are reversible having said that doctors are well aware if one eats well and exercises daily diabetes becomes well non existent. Unfortunately diabetics are at the mercy of experts in the medical field who verbally sell global pharmaceutical companies unhealthy medications.

The reality is, like many illnesses we become complacent with what our medical practitioners tell us is good for us. Am pleased to say.....taking the initiative to seek and find resolve of Diabetes 1 for an elderly relative with daily meditation through living consciously is proof of how achievable healing such diseases are.

With daily meditation the body is capable of healing!! Reply
