I'm not really sure what you're asking. Except for any recipes on my site that are from Chutatip, I can't vouch for their authenticity. Chutatip used to post on this forum and she lives in Thailand. She sent me several of her recipes that were already low carb without much tweaking. In most cases I simply switched out Splenda for any sugar that was called for. The rest of the ingredients were already suitable for low carb. You might have to be careful with the curry pastes over there. The brand that I use (Thai Kitchen) doesn't have any added sugar but I think that a lot of brands do have sugar in them. Also be careful with fish sauce. It's not easy to find a brand that's not full of sugar.
