When our dad was diagnosed with diabetes we were shocked to learn about how pervasive diabetes is in our communities. Here are some fast facts:
- 1 in 3 North Americans is living with diabetes or is pre-diabetic
- The Diabetes Association and the Heart & Stroke Foundation recommend consuming no more than 50g of added sugars per day
- Some "healthy" protein bars/ snack bars can have up to 20g of sugar in every serving
This is why we make our Nufs with 5-6g of sugar per serving and packed with whole food nutrition!
