Smart About Carbs
Carbolicious follows the well-known theory, adopted by the American Diabetes Association, “low-carbers” & diabetics worldwide which states that FIBER & SUGAR ALCOHOLS AND ESPECIALLY ERYTHRITOL MAY BE SUBTRACTED FROM THE TOTAL CARBS COUNT, due to their near-zero-impact on blood sugar levels.
All the ingredients we use in our products scrupulously follow this principle, ensuring consistent low carb counts and low glycemic indices.
We use Almond flour which, in addition to being lowest in carbs and glycemic index is also gluten-free.
We sweeten the taste of our baked goodies with Erythritol. It’s the most costly sugar alcohol, but has ZERO glycemic impact (0.0% glucose equivalent and 0.2 calories/gram compared to, say, xylithol with 13% glucose equivalent and contains 3 calories/gram.)
We don’t use additives or preservatives. Fresh, delicious and healthy baking is all we proudly care about!Don’t just take our words…
Diabetes Forecast from the American Diabetic Association by Madelyn L. Wheeler MS, RD, CDE, FADA, CD, The 3rd paragraph numbers 1. and 2. states that if
erythritol is the only sugar alcohol, all the carbs from sugar alcohol can be subtracted.
