WHAT IS TYPE 1 DIABETES?
Type 1 diabetes is a chronic condition in which a person’s own immune system attacks the pancreas and destroys the body’s ability to produce insulin, which the body uses to use the glucose in your blood (“blood sugar”) to feed your cells and store extra glucose for later retrieval.
This lack of insulin means glucose from food can’t get into the cells which also leaves too much glucose in the blood.
These high blood sugar levels can lead to short-term and long-term problems such as eye disease, heart disease, stroke, kidney damage, urinary tract infections, and nerve damage.

SUGAR AND TYPE 1 DIABETES
Eating naturally occurring glucose in good healthy foods is almost inescapable. Avoiding the consumption of additional glucose through hidden or added loose sugars will reduce the complications of diabetes and provide a longer higher quality of life.
ZUGA AND TYPE 1 DIABETES
Eating naturally occurring glucose in good healthy foods is almost inescapable.
Avoiding the consumption of additional glucose through hidden or added loose sugars will reduce the complications of diabetes and provide a longer higher quality of life.
Using Zuga as your loose sugar replacement will not only allow you an almost unlimited “dietary budget” for sweeteners each day but will satisfy your quest for a sugar substitute that tastes almost EXACTLY like sugar with no aftertastes!
Main Benefit of Zuga for Diabete
Zuga does not spike blood sugar or insulin. Humans don’t break down Zuga so there is no change in blood sugar or insulin levels
Zuga tastes sweet. It’s remarkably similar to table sugar. Some people actually cannot tell the difference.
Many other sugar substitutes lead to bloating and an upset stomach. Zuga is generally absorbed by your body very quickly, meaning people generally handle it better than other sugar alcohols. It is the only sweetener of its class that doesn’t come with any warnings from the CFIA or FDA!
Zuga is made from one of the newer sugar alcohols on the market approved by The World Health Organization (WHO) in 1999, followed by the CFIA and FDA in 2001.
Stop Counting Carbs… Zuga contains no carbohydrates. Therefore you NEVER have to count any carbs because of Zuga.
Zuga looks like sugar as it comes in the form of white crystal granules or powder.
You can use Zuga the same way as sugar. You can stir it into your coffee or tea, sprinkle it on grapefruit, or bake with it and see how similar it is in both taste and consistency!
Sugar has 4 calories per gram, but Zuga has ZERO. That’s because your small intestine absorbs it quickly and gets it out of your body within 24 hours. This means Zuga doesn’t have a chance to “metabolize” – turn into energy in your body.
Zuga actually decreases the creation of the acids that damage your teeth. So don’t worry about your kids eating Zuga because ZUGA IS GOOD FOR YOUR TEETH!
There aren’t official guidelines on how much Zuga you can eat, but most people can handle 1 gram for every kilogram of body weight daily. So if you weigh 150 pounds, one can tolerate a minimum of 68 grams of Zuga a day!
