Diabetic foods products sugar free

Diabetic Food Products products,China Diabetic Food Products supplier

There is a whole range of food and drinks in the store that carry these labels:

  • sugar-free
  • reduced sugar
  • light
  • no sugar added

When you remove some or all of the sugar from these products, artificial sweeteners are often added instead to keep the sweet taste.

When you see these claims on packages, remember that they do not mean the food is completely carbohydrate-free.

These foods may or may not be lower in carbohydrate than the original product and they will still raise blood glucose levels.

There are also many products now that say they are sweetened with Splenda. This also does not mean they have zero carbohydrates. They are probably lower in calories, but they still contain carbs.

Nutrition Label Confusion

Claims about sugar on nutrition labels can be confusing. Some say “no sugar added, ” “sugar-free, ” “reduced sugar, ” etc.

While the amount of sugar in these foods may be lower, remember that sugar is only one form of carbohydrate (they may also contain starch, fiber, and/or sugar alcohols).

For this reason, keep in mind the general rule: always check the Nutrition Facts Label for the total carbohydrate content.

Only when I was diabetic

The low carb diet itself isn't the issue; from the article:
"Yet in true American fashion, we have taken this craze to its illogical extreme, creating all manner of low-carb products, including pastas, cereals, chocolate bars, brownies, and ice cream. In other words, instead of cutting out refined sugars and flours and moving toward more of a "whole foods" approach—which is what these diets implicitly (or explicitly) encourage—we have managed to spawn yet another generation of packaged, artificial foods. This is precisely what happened with the low-fat food boom in the '80s and '90s, which promised a dietetic alternative to every conceivable high-fat snack food and dessert

I was diabetic for a few years

And really loved using Splenda as opposed to Equal. After gastric bypass, you still need to stay away from sugary foods, so I continue to use it and products that have Splenda in them. I like the taste and for me, there's no mettalic/after taste.
Some people get headaches from any kind of artificial sweetner, so just try it and see what you like. Splenda has a website and there are lots of recipes as well as info on it there. A friend bakes for a living and uses it in her recipes when requested, as well as for herself.

We do buy fresh stuff, and I cook healthy meals,

I am diabetic. We are extremely health concious in the house. We do vegetarian 1 meal a week, do not eat much red meat.. fish and chicken, Do not keep sugar products in the house, cook with splenda...we do not keep junk foods in the house. My kids snack on fruit, berries, yogurt, veggies. My particular problem is that i OVER eat. I eat and eat and eat and do not want to stop eating. I also seek comfort in food. We eat good things, I just eat too much of it and too often and I do not exersize like I should be.

I would wait for the vet you trust since the

Wait isn't that long (it isn't like you have to wait weeks to see your favored vet). One thing though - if you look at the analysis of the Hills W/D food, it is VERY different from the food that you are feeding. While I'm not a fan of Hills, their perscription foods are formulated for the issues they address.
