Descriptions: What are Extend Snacks?
Developed originally for people with diabetes, Extend Snacks help stabilize blood sugar for up to 9 hours longer than any other snack on the market today! By doing so, Extend Snacks help to naturally control hunger, minimize diabetes symptoms, prevent low blood sugar and provide a continuous source of energy for even the most strenuous activities.
How Extend Snacks came to be a breakthrough in carbohydrate management from an expert in metabolism
Knowing that the body converts complex (low glycemic) carbohydrates to blood sugar much more slowly than simple (high glycemic) carbohydrates, Dr. Kaufman, a physician specializing in endocrinology, metabolism and diabetes, hypothesized that complex carbs could help people dramatically reduce blood sugar fluctuations, improve their energy level and naturally suppress their appetite.
Clinical studies proved her right and instantly, a breakthrough was born! Dr. Kaufman's formula a unique, low glycemic blend of slow-burning carbohydrates, protein and fats uses uncooked cornstarch, a vital complex carbohydrate, as a key ingredient. Extend Snacks are the only snacks clinically proven to help stabilize blood sugar and control hunger for up to 9 hours!
Extend Snacks have come a long way since their original formulation. They have already received 12 patents worldwide, including patents for their ability to help stabilize blood sugar levels, naturally suppress appetite, and improve exercise performance and recovery. They are also now available in low-carb, sugar-free, kosher and even gluten-free flavors.
Extend Crisps have an excellent nutritional profile, offering a good balance of carbohydrate, protein and fat.
If you are counting your carbs whether its to help you manage your meal plan or determine if an adjustment to your insulin is appropriate count only the carbohydrates in Extend Crisps 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.
According to clinically conducted continuous glucose monitoring, only 8-9 of the total grams of carbohydrate in Extend Crisps have a short-term impact on blood sugar. Fiber and uncooked cornstarch convert slowly and have minimal impact on blood sugar.
