Celebrity chefs are bad for your health
Recipes under fire for high saturated fat content
Frequently cooking up the recipes of celebrity chefs such as Nigella Lawson, Gordon Ramsay and Rick Stein could be bad for your health, research – called The Guilty Secret of Celebrity Chefs – has found.
A panel ofdietary expertswho assessed some of the most popularcelebrity cookbooksfound that many containedrecipeswith more than 100 per cent of the recommended daily amount ofsaturated fatin a single serving.
Jean-Christophe Novelli’s honey roast pumpkin soup was among the worst offenders, providing 216 per cent, whilePhil Vickery’s cottage pie contained 120 per cent and the sticky toffee pudding byGordon Ramsayaccounted for 115 per cent.
Eating a diet that is high insaturated fatcan raise the level ofcholesterolin blood, which can increase the risk of developingheart disease. The daily recommended limit is 30g for men and 20g for women.
The study was carried out byThe Fat Panel, an independent group of experts in areas such asnutrition, public health and pharmacy. Its report said that few people realised the potentialhealth risksof eating such meals on a regular basis.
Sian Porter, a registered dietician on The Fat Panel, said: ‘We are not being thenutritionpolice here or killjoys, but there are some things that are pure indulgence and should be left as such, to be enjoyed as an occasional treat in all their fat, sugar andcalorie-ladenglory.’
The warning was made amid a growing trend for cooking at home, rather than eating out, to save money during the recession.
