About the Recipes

Our Diabetic Dessert Recipes were specially selected for people with diabetes. All of the recipes on this website are based on the foundations of sound nutrition as said by the dietary guidelines created by the US Department of Agriculture and the United States Department of Health and Human Services, making them excellent for the whole family.

Our Diabetic Dessert Recipes are not meant to serve as a medically therapeutic program, nor as substitute for physician approved meal plans for individuals with diabetes, each recipe has different amounts of calories, fat, cholesterol, sodium and carbohydrate that will fit nicely into an individualized meal plan.

Concerning Sugar

During 1994, the American Diabetes Association removed the ban on sugar from the recommended dietary guidelines. You can, for example, exchange 1 tbs of sugar for a slice of bread because each is figured as a starch exchange. The new guidelines for sugar intake are based on scientific studies that show that carbohydrate in the form of sugars don’t increase blood sugar levels more rapidly than other types of carbohydrate-containing food. It is more relevant to know the total amount of carbohydrates eaten, not necessarily the source.

While eating many foods loaded in sugar is not healthy for anyone, when calculated into your nutritional schedule, it should not be harmful.

If you have any inquiries or concerns about sugar in your diet, consult your doctor, certified diabetes educator or registered dietitian for more info.

Nutritional Analysis

The nutritional analysis that appears with each diabetic dessert recipe was edited by the participating organizations and associations. We have tried to check the accuracy of these numbers as best as we can. However, because many variables account for a wide range of values for certain food items, nutrition analysis listed here should be considered as approximate values.
