Any product that is marketed to diabetics should carry the glycaemic load or glycaemic index of the food. This product may have no sugar but is over two thirds carbohydrates from grain. So it is likely that the product has a high glycaemic index and load and so may not at all be suitable for diabetics except in very small occasional servings.
The foodnetindia rating for this product :-
foodnetindia safety rating: 4 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unsafe to very safe)
Except for the edible vegetable oil in the product, it is a safe product for most people. However, as this product is marketed to diabetics, we must look at safety from a diabetic’s point of view. The high grain carbs in the product may actually mean that this is a high glycaemic index and high glycaemic load product, which will make it low on safety for a diabetic cohort.
foodnetindia wholesomeness rating: 7 – (On a scale of 1 to 10 from very unbalanced nutrition profile to excellent nutrition profile)
The product contains grain diversity – oats, ragi, bajra, soy. It also contains fenugreek and cumin. Fibre content is good and protein is reasonable. This is a wholesome product.
Ingredients in Diabodelite Multi-Grain Sugar Free Cookies which are a concern:
- Edible Vegetable Oil
This food product does not specify which edible vegetable oil has been used. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. In addition, consumers need clear information about the type of vegetable oil used, so that they can take action to maintain a healthy balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid consumption.
In addition, some people may be allergic to specific oils. Food allergies can sometimes be life threatening.
