Hyfiber is an ideal product for the diabetic population. Although the carbohydrate content is listed as a total of 14 grams, 12 grams is considered fiber. Polydextrose, an alternative sweetener to sugar, which is the main component of Hyfiber, does not impact the blood glucose levels the same way other sweeteners do.
Furthermore polydextrose, also recognized as a bulking agent, has been shown to help with satiety and overall digestion which may aid in weight loss and in turn better glucose management. Diabetics (type II) are often recommended to reduce their body weight by 10% to help improve their glucose levels as well as overall management efforts. Our HyFiber product may actually aid in both digestion and better overall management of glucose levels.
