2 out of 7 recipes in the Savory Goods section have illegal SCD ingredients.
on March 26, 2016
When you're selling a book titled "Recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet" a buyer would reasonably assume that these recipes use only ingredients allowed on the SCD. Feeling in the mood for trying a new type of bread/cracker recipe (of which I have many great ones), I flipped to the section titled "Savory Goods" first. There are 7 recipes there and 2 of them contain baking powder, an illegal ingredient on the SCD diet. This is being marketed to people who are on the SCD because they are sick. And the SCD diet is incredibly strict and requires total compliance. In my mind, that makes it unconscionable to include ingredients that shouldn't be there. Even if every single other recipe in the book meets SCD requirements, having 2 our of 7 savory goods recipes makes this cookbook a fail.
