Yes.... Sweetners contain sugars that cannot be digested by the gastrointestinal system.. Hence they taste like sugar but do not add on to the blood sugars.. Tesco do contain the same kind of sugars.. So you can use those products.. Read the label before you buy any other products and make sure the products do not contain sugars that add to the blood sugars....

I am in need of some ideas of foods that diabetics can eat.? I have some cookbooks for Diabetes but sometimes don t agree on what a diabetic can eat. Any ideas or personal experience Jeanie, you hit the nail on the head . That is the way I have always felt about what I can eat. I am going to have to quit coffee as I cannot learn to drink it without sugar and substitute sweetners don t work. I don t like the taste. Many thanks to all who answered.
Hello, I am pregnant and just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I have been taking my readings for 5 days now, and all have been in the 80 s and 90 s, except one at 110. Today, I haven t don e anything different, and got a reading 2 hours after eating lunch of 142....the only thing I can think of is that my sugar free iced coffee I ordered at 11:00 this morning was not made sugar free....is this reading really high and hurtful?
