It is important to understand that not all carbs are 'terrible' and not all carbs are the same. Simple carbs such as refined sugar, refined flour are really quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, hence we recommend limited intake. However, carbohydrates are fundamentally part of a lot of foods, and essentially the fuel your body runs on. ⚡
Whole grains are a good source of carbohydrates because they are 'complex carbs', it takes your body longer to breakdown naturally and releases slower into your bloodstream to fuel your body with energy. Oats are a great and healthy source of carbohydrates and offer fiber, protein, vitamins, and minerals at the same time. Depending on each case of diabetes, the amount of carbohydrates consumed per sitting/at a time is adjusted for each individual, along with or without medication/insulin dosages. However, our product offers a standard serving of carbohydrates (and good carbs), as per the Canadian health guide and Diabetes Canada.
