Diabetic
Nutrient Calculations (updated June, 2014)

Choice values assigned by adhering to the following conventions:

  1. Energy, protein, fat, carbohydrate, dietary fibre determined to 1 decimal place.

  2. Dietary Fiber subtracted from carbohydrate

  3. Assigned choice values reflect composition of the food

  4. 1.5-3.4 grams of fat = fat choice

  5. 2.5- 5 grams carbohydrate = fruit and vegetable choice

  6. Less than 2.5 grams carbohydrate = an extra choice

Due to variation in glycemic response in mixed meals the diabetic choice values should be used as a guide in conjunction with capillary blood glucose monitoring.
Total carbohydrate figures are acceptable for carbohydrate counting.
