    I thought we were allowed these on LLL but I have just noticed that they contain acidity regulator which is citric acid .... are we allowed them or not ?

    Yes we are :)

    If you look into your book, there is a recipe for curry and in the ingredients is tinned chopped tomatoes :)

    I've been having them throught out my journey and have lost weight :p

    I emailed my LL consultant re this and he said to avoid citric acid as it can take me out of ketosis , I then asked him what brands of tinned tomatoes were ok then as they all seem to contain citric acid - he is now not sure and is going to check with LL tomorrow - fingers crossed its ok as I bought 5 tins yesterday :)

    just had a butchers at my book and in the vegetable section we are allowed tomatoes including puree and passatta. It shouldn't matter which brand u get because a tomato is a tomato lol.

    I know what you mean and fingers crossed its ok and you are right a tomato is a tomato but the problem is the added citric acid in the cans - which is apparently a no-no on LL , what my consultant said was he would check with LL directly but he suspected that perhaps the volume of citric acid was maybe too low to make a difference - I really hope so as I have used them a few times x
