Good Lord! Any nasties in it?

Worth buying if you make jam - as good jars cost a bomb!

TeamEdwardTango Thu 01-Oct-09 16:08:17

The Sainsburys basics curry sauce is also pretty good, about 13p I think.

no curry in a jar is nice.

MamaG Thu 01-Oct-09 16:09:01

MamaG Thu 01-Oct-09 16:09:30

I have to say, when I've looked at the ingredients on Sainsbury's Basics products, they are usually very, very good and free of any nasties. So this doesn't surprise me.

Sainsbury's Basics curry sauce is obviously a premium one, as I think it cost me 9p.

ooh get you BIWI with your fancy curry

Lio Thu 01-Oct-09 16:12:14

lactic acid is something you get in yoghurt I think. Not a baddie as far as I know.

SausageRocket Thu 01-Oct-09 16:13:04

isn't lactic acid what builds up in your muscles and gives you cramp ?


Not from food sources though.

BecauseImWorthIt Thu 01-Oct-09 16:14:11

Lactic acid is used in the making of butters like Lurpak, also known as lactic butters (as opposed to sweetcream butters like Anchor - think silver foil versus creamy greaseproof). It gives a slightly sour note - a bit like adding lemon juice/tamarind juice.

Domestic science lesson now over. Have to get back to work!

Well that killed that one!

Lactic acid is what your body produces as a by-product of carbohydrate energy production.
In some metabolic diseases it can over-produce and be toxic.
But not in curry sauce or butter.
Its great what we don't know, ain't it!! grin

What is fenugreek?

Ledodgy Sun 04-Oct-09 20:29:55

It's a herb/spice it's good for milk production if you're breast feeding.

btmh Sun 04-Oct-09 20:32:28

that in my slow cooker now with left over chicken and i agree it is yum

MamaG Sun 04-Oct-09 22:05:41

is anybody going to rush outa nd buy a jar?

GoppingOtter Sun 04-Oct-09 22:08:55

i would if there was an asda nearby - totally

lactic acid fine just milk

glucose Sun 04-Oct-09 22:11:45

4p is great, but it would cost me a couple of quid to get to an Asda so will not rush, but keep an eye out if ever in region of an Asda, thanks for tip

PlumBumMum Sun 04-Oct-09 22:16:49

Sainsburys basics is 4p and not bad, I would call it a spicy sweet curry, and also good to have in cupboard for emergencies currygrin

teamcullen Sun 04-Oct-09 22:32:08

Tescos 4p curry is nicer than asda imo. I add apples, pears and sometimes pinapple to it to make a fruity chicken curry in the nursery where I work.

Goes down a treat every time. smile
