The fiber and special starch in our products convert so slowly to blood glucose, they have little impact on your blood sugar. Slow release supports steady blood glucose - just what you want. No spike. No crash. Very healthy. We designed them that way.
Here’s How To Count The Carbs: Fiber, Sugar Alcohols and "Non-Factor Other Carbs" convert slowly, thus have a minimal impact on blood sugar and should be subtracted from the total carbs.
Extend Bar Chocolate Peanut Butter 20g Total Carbs - 6g Dietary Fiber - 5g Sugar Alcohol - 8g Other Carbs (5g Uncooked Cornstarch and 3g Glycerin) = 1g Net Carbs
Extend’s net carbs are significantly lower and far better for your health than what you find in other bars and shakes. (0 to 1 net carbs per bar & 4 net carbs per shake - check the package for each flavor).
Pretty much everyone benefits from steady blood sugar. It’s your fuel and steady is the watchword. You feel better, have more energy, get more done and for longer, and avoid the damaging effects of spikes and crashes. Many clinical studies show this. Steady is the Word.
So, Extend is excellent for:
Exercise & Fitness routines of all kinds, pre and post – steady long-lasting energy
Healthy Snacks - between meals, on the go, meal replacements
Weight Control – curb appetite, replace unhealthy snacks. Fits most diet programs
Diabetes & Prediabetes - preventing blood sugar swings is key to managing diabetes.
Steady energy. No Spike. No Crash. Very healthy.
Like Extend Nutrition products, most low-carb and sugar-free foods have few fast-converting (net) carbs. When you eat them, they won’t cause a big rise in your blood sugar. But that’s where the similarity ends.
Unfortunately, other low-carb and sugar-free foods don’t contain sufficient long-acting carbohydrates to help maintain a healthy blood sugar level throughout the day like Extend Nutrition products. So within an hour or so, your blood sugar drops, triggering a crash. And many low-carb products are also high in fat and cholesterol and contain trans-fats, so they are not particularly good for your heart.
The unique formula in Extend Nutrition products is patented for its ability to break down more gradually than other foods and release nutrients into your system more slowly. This slow conversion helps keep your blood sugar from rising too quickly, and continues to supply your body with the blood sugar fuel it needs for healthy long lasting energy and to keep your appetite under control for up to 6 hours.
