Developed specifically for people with diabetes by endocrinologist Francine Kaufman, ExtendBar now has a new formula, available in Chocolate Delight and Peanut Delight flavors.
ExtendBar helps stabilize blood glucose up to nine hours. According to ExtendBar, because its conversion to glucose is so gradual, the new ExtendBar formula does not raise blood glucose or require a bolus of insulin.
Some additional benefits of the bars are:
- They don’t cause high after-meal blood glucose
- They help prevent low blood glucose for (hypoglycemia) for up to nine hours
- They help suppress the appetite and can reduce the number of calories eaten at the next meal
New ExtendBars are high in protein (22 percent of daily value) and fiber (20 percent of daily value) and are sugar-free. They are also low in fat and cholesterol-free, and they contain no transfats.
