Diabetic foods are more focused on low fat, low carb, high fiber and low GI. The variations in different products are specified with nutritive tags and are classified in racks based on the processing technology, making it convenient for our customers at GuiRes -The healthy super market. While choosing diabetic foods kindly note that the fiber is ≥6 g/ 100 g ; glycemic index < 55; total fat ≤3 g / 100 g. Honey, high fructose corn syrup, corn starch, glucose syrup, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, fruit juice concentrates, etc., are examples of hidden sugars. Some of FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved artificial sweeteners are Acesulfame potassium, Aspartame, Sucralose, D-Tagatose, Saccharin but is not recommended for our customers.
Conclusion: The overall market for diabetic foods is small and rather than concentrating only on the available specialty foods (staple foods like rice, millets, and other processed foods and confectioneries)
