5 Sugar Substitutes For Type 2 Diabetes

1 / 6 A Small Amount of Real Sugar Is Best, but Sugar Substitutes Can Help If you think that people with diabetes should always avoid sugar, think again — they can enjoy the sweet stuff, in moderation. "The best bet is to use a very minimal amount of real sugar as part of a balanced diabetic diet," says Keri Glassman, MS, RD, CDN, of Nutritious Life, a nutrition practice based in New York City. That being said, sugar substitutes offer sweetness while controlling carbohydrate intake and blood glucose. There are many sugar substitutes to choose from, but they’re not all calorie-free and they vary in terms of their impact on blood sugar. "The major difference between the sugar substitutes is whether they are nutritive or non-nutritive sweeteners," says Melissa Mullins, MS, RD, a certified diabetes educator with Johnston Memorial Hospital in Abingdon, Va. "Non-nutritive sweeteners provide no calories and no changes in blood glucose levels, which is perfect for people with diabetes.” Here are six sweet options to consider. Continue reading >>

    I am T2 and have used Splenda for years with no adverse effects. In addition, it does not raise my BG. I used stevia years ago before it was processed into crystals. I liked it but, like everything else, it needs to be made so it will dissolve in liquid which I had a hard time doing with it in the natural state.
    I recently came cross Swerve, another sugar sub but made from fruit. It is expensive but very good and leaves no aftertaste. Nectresse is good and very sweet, only a little is needed.
    Some people are concerned that chlorine is used to process Splenda but it contains only 5%. Our drinking water, even filtered contains much more chlorine I believe. I have never had a problem. However, we drink probiotic homemade kefir everyday for our digestive systems. Kefir has about 3 times the probiotics that yorgurt has and is easier to make at home.
