Special diets and products for diabetics receive great attention from both doctors and patients themselves. Sometimes in stores, people are faced with a huge selection of products that are called specialized there - for diabetics.
Perhaps many have noticed in large grocery stores whole shelves that are somehow allocated for diabetics. On the packaging of various cookies, sweets, and so on, it is clearly written that this product does not contain glucose, but instead fructose. Or sweeteners containing fructose. And people willingly take these products, because everything is logical: no glucose - no problem.
However, do not be fooled, these signs, signatures on packages are nothing more than a marketing ploy to highlight products for better sale. These products are NOT specially formulated for diabetics. The fact is that in the body, fructose is converted by a number of reactions into glucose and is used by tissues as usual.
The same goes for sweeteners, do not use fructose based ones. The best choice in this case is saccharin.
With each diabetic, an endocrinologist personally discusses diet issues, what foods are allowed and what not. It is necessary to follow these recommendations to prevent complications in the future. If we discard all “cannot” and listen to the “can”, then it turns out that there is a huge number of products and dishes to choose from, which, firstly, are safe, and secondly, delicious.
And for readers who do not have diabetes, we can say that despite some meanness from the manufacturers of these products, stores and distributors, the so-called "products for diabetics" can be very tasty. These are ordinary products, you do not need to pass by these dietary shelves, perhaps there is something interesting and tasty there.
