Nutrition Label

Nowadays packaged foods are required to have labels with nutrition facts listed. These nutrition labels are a big help in maintaining good nutrition, particularly with a diabetic diet.

Key part of diabetic diet is knowing how much of a particular nutrient is in a food.  This allows you to translate an item into exchanges and follow a diabetic exchange diet, count carbohydrates, and maintain a healthy diet.

"Sugar-free" and "no added sugar" means that table sugar was not used in that food. Other sweeteners that can turn into blood glucose may be in the food. "Sugar-free" and "no added sugar" foods do not always control diabetes better than regular foods.
