Is it okay for diabetics to eat sugar free cookies, candy, etc?

I was under the impression that those things were made for diabetics.

Big Bobby Clobber
It is okay for diabetics to eat sugar-free things, except...

Packaging law requires white sugar to be identfied; other sugars can be listed using chemical names - Dextrose, fructose, lactose. Sorbitol, and so on. These types of sugar are not too good for diabetics either.

Before a diabetic can consume sweets, they should make sure that the sweetener is acceptable for diabetics; sucralose, matitol, saccharine are all acceptable, among others.

And then, of course, the carbohydrates in cookies and cake, even sugar-free ones, are converted to glucose in the blood - not good for diabetics. The watchword here is moderation in everything.

sure is

Making Healthy Choices

Just about every time you eat a meal, it's up to you to decide what you'll eat and how much. By eating a variety of nutritious foods, you can avoid getting bored and help keep your blood sugar better controlled.

Like anyone, you'll want to limit:

• Sugar. Added sugar has no nutritional value, and artificial sweeteners can taste just as good.

• Salt. This is especially important if you have high blood pressure.

• High-fat and high-cholesterol foods. These cause weight gain and can contribute to heart disease.

• Fast foods and processed foods. Generally speaking, they're tremendously high in fat, sugar, and salt.
Sweeteners and Sugar Substitutes

Having diabetes doesn't mean you can't eat sweets.1 But there are some great-tasting ways to reduce the amount of carbohydrates you take in from eating sugar.

Artificial sweeteners. Low-calorie sweeteners sweeten food without extra calories or raising your blood sugar. They can be added to your meal plan without affecting your carbohydrate count. The American Diabetes Association and the Food and Drug Administration feel that these sweeteners are safe for you to include as part of your healthy meal plan.1

These include:

• saccharin (Sweet'N Low®, SugarTwin® )

• aspartame (NutraSweet®, Equal®)

• acesulfame Potassium, or acesulfame K (Sweet One® , Sunett®)

• sucralose (Splenda®)

Sugar alcohols. You may have seen the names isomalt, maltitol, Mannitol, Sorbitol, and xylitol on candy, gum, and dessert labels, but what are they? They aren't sugar or alcohol—they're commercially created carbohydrates with a chemical structure that resembles sugar and alcohol.2 (But, again, they're alcohol free.) They still contain about half the calories or sugars and other carbohydrates. So remember, foods with sugar alcohols aren't free foods.1

Also keep in mind, foods that say "sugar free" or "no sugar added" may still be high in carbohydrates. And fat-free products may be even higher in carbs than the foods they replace. Always check the label

I hope this helps!

I have the problem with my mother all the time. she is diabetics and she think that just because the items said that it is sugar free that mean that it is safe to eat. You have to make that there is no sugar add. Some items just say no sugar add and add some of kind of sugar to the product look for word like fructose that is sugar. There are some other words ask your doctor what look out for or go to an health food store.

yes, sugar free cndy, cookies etc were first made for diabetics to enjoy some normal treats, but you may have to be careful if you are sensitive to sweeteners and additives though as there are lots more in sugar free food than in regular stuff.

absolutely, as long as its in moderation

Yes, that is ok. It is also ok for diabetics to eat those things even if they are not sugar free if it is done in moderation.

Yes, if the allotted carbs/calories/etc fit into the diabetic's meal plan. There is an additive (sugar alcohol) that is sometimes put in place of the sugar that causes stomach problems for some people so that should be taken into account.
