Chocolate Celebrations and Cautions in Diabetes

Chocolate and celebrations are like 2 peas in a pod. Diabetes may keep you away from chocolate at most times, but everyone has occasions when a square of the irresistible brown treat seems in order.

Chocolate made without sugar seems to be manna from heaven for people with diabetes, but it does contain carbohydrates, so it is not as though you can gorge on it to your heart’s content, or have it everyday.

Modern brands of chocolate without sugar are made so well, that people with diabetes need miss nothing, as long as they keep portions and frequencies within reasonable limits. It is important to choose a brand without chemical coloring and flavors, because these could be harmful. Nothing like the natural stuff when it comes to chocolate without sugar for people with diabetes!

Sugar-free chocolate is available not just as ready-to-eat bars, but in the form of chunks that can be used for baking. Ask your nutrition expert to make exchanges for desserts with sugar free chocolate, but remember, moderation is the key!
