    Has anyone had these and noticed if they affect your reading in any way with them being a slow carb realise

    Re: Belvita Biscuits

    I have just done a Tesco online shop and have just amended it and added a packet of Belvita Cranberry biscuits for £2.59 for 300 grammes.

    Will let you know what they do to my blood levels.

    They have very low sugar....

    Never tried them Claire although I've seen them in the supermarkets. I suppose you won't know what effect they'll have on your bg until you've tried them, I like something more filling in a morning so tend to stick with porridge, at 8g of carbs per biscuit they could come in handy when dropping down into the low 4's :thumbup:

    Hi claire. I have 2 biscuits for my 10.30 snack at work and when I test my levels for lunch at 1 they are usually around 5.4 so they work great for me. :)

    Well I tried them yesterday and found them to be great the sugar content wasn't too high in the flavour I picked and I found my BG ran around 6.2 all day so happy days
