Diabetic Chocolate - Our Partners

Did you know?

There is good news for diabetics!

  • Happily, diabetic chocolate has a low glycemic index (GI), which means it does not lead to sharp spikes in blood sugar when you eat it. 

  • Chocolate has a high amount of fat and fiber, both of which slow digestion.

  • Eating chocolate may increase insulin sensitivity.

  • Eating chocolate may also stimulate the beta cells in your pancreas to release insulin.

  • Studies have linked chocolate consumption to lower blood pressure, triglycerides, and total

       cholesterol levels.

  • "Sugar-free chocolate” usually refers to chocolate that has been sweetened with calorie-free or

        low-calorie sugar substitutes.

  • These substitutes are usually safe for diabetics, since they have no effect on blood sugar.

  • Chocolate is good for diabetics! Just keep it in moderation and make good choices!
