For many older people it is not advisable to eat jam and similar sweet spreads with bread or chappatties as they have diabetes and similar health problems . However there is a major shortage of spreads for bread which are not sweet, not containing sugar.
Some of the alternatives are
– Groundnut or peanut butter ( very expensive, Rs 250 for 500 grams)
– cheese (fairly expensive)
– mayonnaise (expensive)
– mustard spread
As the number of people suffering from diabetes is increasing, many of them are looking for healthy and easy to use food alternatives which do not contain sugar. A business making these healthy spreads can make a lot of money.
