What about sweet­en­ers?

Diabetes Care Guide (English) - - RETAIL NEWS -

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.
