A study recently published by UBC Researchers shows that eating Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate results in lower blood glucose levels than regular dark chocolate in adults with diabetes – this is in line with our expectations since Ross Chocolate is completely sugar free while conventional dark chocolate bars do contain sugar.
The fantastic result was that Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate has no effect on blood sugar levels that required treatment (with insulin or other blood glucose lower methods) for either T1Ds or T2Ds!
The study compared blood sugar levels of both Type 1 diabetics and Type 2 diabetics before and after eating conventional dark chocolate and Ross sugar Free Dark Chocolate. The researchers found that eating Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate did not significantly raise blood sugars for up to two hours and no insulin or treatment for increased blood sugars was required by anyone. That makes Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate the first diabetic chocolate scientifically proven to be safe!
Highlights of the report are:
- Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate did not significantly affect blood sugar levels for up to 2 hours after consumption.
- Consuming 2 to 6 oz (58-168g) of Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate per week can help to delay or stop the onset of Type 2 diabetes.
- Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate can reduce fasting blood sugar levels in obese and overweight people.
- Ross Sugar Free Dark Chocolate may have cardiovascular benefits; more study is needed.
