The carbohydrates contained in most foods we eat are faster-acting carbohydrates that convert to blood sugar within a couple of hours and can cause blood sugar to spike dramatically. For this reason, health care professionals may caution individuals with diabetes to limit the amount of carbohydrates they eat.
Extend Snacks' patented blend is different. Its unique combination of slower-acting and faster-acting carbohydrates, combined with protein and fat converts gradually to blood sugar over 7-9 hours. So like low carb, high protein foods, Extend Snacks won't spike your blood sugar. But unlike these low carb, high protein foods, Extend Snacks continue to supply your body with the blood sugar it needs to function properly far longer - up to 9 hours.
