ExtendBars are delicious, convenient snacks that offer a benefit no other snacks on the market can; they are clinically proven to help stabilize blood sugar for up to 9 hours.  This makes ExtendBars a great snack choice for anyone interested in blood sugar management, whether you are Type 1 diabetic, Type 2 diabetic, gestational diabetic, pre-diabetic, or hypoglycemic.  Even if you are not diabetic, but are interested in weight loss, weight maintenance, increased energy, or fitness, ExtendBars are the perfect snack for you too.

Glycemic Index

All ExtendBar flavors have a low glycemic index (GI), and a low glycemic load (GL). The glycemic index (GI) ranks carbohydrates according to their effect on blood glucose levels.  Carbohydrate foods with a low glycemic index cause only small fluctuations in blood glucose and insulin levels.  Selecting foods with a low glycemic index can help you better manage or prevent diabetes, reduce long-term health risks, help you lose weight and sustain it, and prolong physical performance.

Glycemic Index Ranges:

Low: less than 55 
Medium: 56 to 69 
High: greater than 70

How to count the carbs in ExtendBar


If you are counting your carbs – whether it’s to help you manage your meal plan or determine if an adjustment to your insulin is appropriate – count only the carbohydrates in ExtendBar that have a short-term impact on blood sugar.  These carbohydrates are referred to as “faster-acting” or “net carbs”.  The remaining carbohydrates, “slower acting”, convert slowly to blood sugar and therefore, have minimal impact on blood sugar.
 
Based on clinically conducted continuous glucose monitoring, only 1-2 of the total 21 grams of carbohydrate have a short-term impact on blood sugar.  Fibre, glycerine, maltitol, and uncooked cornstarch convert slowly and have minimal impact on blood sugar.
