What about sweeteners?
Maintaining a healthy weight is key to managing diabetes. Start with a zero calorie sweetener instead of sugar. It’s an easy way to make a big difference in weight management and help your carbohydrates go further. Sweeteners let you enjoy your favourite foods and beverages while managing carbohydrate and calorie intake to help maintain glycemic control. Sweeteners come in a variety of product forms and can be used in beverages, on cereal, fruit and in cooking and baking.
Watch for hidden sugar in products like presweetened cereals, throat lozenges and cough syrups. Your pharmacist can help you choose.
