What ice cream is good for diabetics?
Graeter’s now has great tasting diabetic friendly

How Does Graeter’s Do it?
Graeter’s uses naturally sweet monk fruit extract, which comes from a small fruit that Buddhist monks have cultivated for centuries and treasured it for its unique sweetness, to make ice cream that is naturally low glycemic. Because of its concentrated sweetness, it takes only a small amount to make ice cream that tastes great, so you get the same Graeter’s taste with less sugar.
Benefits of a Low Glycemic Diet
Low glycemic diets help lower blood glucose levels. People with diabetes can use glycemic index and glycemic load to help guide their food choices to better manage their diet. Glycemic Index measures how much a carbohydrate- containing food raises blood sugar. Glycemic Load is a numerical value that indicates the change in blood glucose levels when you eat a typical serving of the food. Foods with an index of 55 and below are considered to have a low glycemic index. Foods with a load of 10 and below are considered to have a low glycemic load. Graeter’s Low Glycemic Ice Cream has both a low glycemic index of only 21 and a low glycemic load of only 4.5 gram equivalents (in subjects with type 2 diabetes).
