One should also check the serving size and how many carbohydrates for each serving. It may seem like a low carbohydrate per serving when the serving is small and consuming the whole contents might mean eating more carbohydrates than what one realizes.
I had eaten some sugar free chocolates. It was a small package with a handful of pieces in it. Since it was late and I checked my blood sugar level before I had consumed it, the next morning my blood sugar level was higher than expected.
I have eaten some sugar free gummy bears that had a lot more carbohydrates than I realized. It would be great for when ones sugar level was low and needed a boost; not from any added sugar but from the amount of carbohydrates it had. When one blood sugar is not low, one has to be careful how much one eats at one time.
Just because something is no sugar added does not mean it does not have a lot of sugar in it. There are products are labeled with no sugar added since the other ingredients have their own sugar; like milk used in no sugar added ice cream.
The best advice would be from ones primary care physician and/or a diabetic educator. Getting advice is good but getting them from the above is even better and they can adapt it to ones personal needs. One can control ones diabetes better with the knowledge they can give.
a great resource for diabetes.
