Sugar Free Foods

 


    One of the most common question among diabetic is " Can I eat all I want of food that is label sugar free?". 

    The answer is NO.  A food labeled sugar free must contain less than 0.5 gram of sugar per serving, but it may have calories an carbohydrate.  For example, sugar-free pudding has 0 grams of sugar, but it also has 70 calories and 6 gram of carbohydrate in 1/2 cup of servings.  If you were to eat unlimited amounts, you could easily add to much calorie and carbohydrate and sabotage your diabetes and weight control efforts over time.

    It is important to note that, although the sweetener used in sugar free product may be calorie free, such as aspartame, sucralose, saccharin, etc, the other ingredients in food usually contain fat, carbohydrate, protein and calories.  So don't just rely on sugar free symbol on the package, read the ingredient list and food label carefully so you can make the right diabetes food choice.
