Low fat scotch pie approved by Scottish Slimmers goes on sale at Sainsbury's
December 2014

 

A low fat scotch pie which has been endorsed by Scottish Slimmers has been officially launched at Sainsbury's stores across Scotland.

 

 

The McGhee's reduced fat scotch pie, produced by McGhee's Bakery of Glasgow, has nearly half the fat of a standard scotch pie. The pie is also lower in salt and is now within the government's healthy eating guidelines for salt content.

The McGhee's production team has worked hard to ensure that the reduced fat scotch pie looks and tastes just as good as the traditional version. The pie's healthier credentials have earned the product a ‘Health Check’ tick from Scottish Slimmers.

Ross Hamilton from McGhee's Bakery said: “We wanted to create a scotch pie that was healthier, without compromising on the taste. The fat is reduced by over 40 per cent compared to a traditional scotch pie recipe, and the taste has been a revelation to a lot of people who thought they would never eat a scotch pie again!”

Jennifer Polson from Scottish Slimmers said: “Scottish Slimmers members are always interested in eating healthier versions of their favourite foods and the McGhee's reduced fat scotch pies proved an instant hit with those who tested them. 46% of our members told us they had decided to stop eating scotch pies altogether while they were losing weight so, now, thanks to these lighter, tastier pies they can enjoy a Scottish Slimmers style scotch pie supper with the rest of their family any time — and still get a weight loss!”.

Each scotch pie contains just 2.3g of saturated fat, 1.2g of salt and has 314 calories.

Pancake day, 4th March

 

Shrove Tuesday - also known as Pancake Day - is the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It is celebrated throughout the UK by the cooking and eating of pancakes - a last feast before the fasting and self-denial of Lent. In some places pancake races are held, where participants run along tossing a pancake as they go.

Another name for Shrove Tuesday is Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, so called because of the tradition of eating rich food before fasting for Lent. The famous New Orleans Mardi Gras is celebrated on this day.
