    Cream is fine if you're doing low-carb, in fact I found all natural fat is fine. Elmlea is not natural. The standard low-fat advice is not at all helpful to T2s in my experience.

    I avoid all fruit juice and cordials, and most fruit, because of the sugar content - fruit drinks usually have fructose which can be worse according to accounts. I'd instinctively mistrust anything that says "no added sugar" or "low sugar" - this might only mean 18 teaspoons of sugar equivalent rather than 20. I do drink zero-sugar drinks - Coke Zero for example - as they have no effect on my blood sugars, but others have reported different experiences.

    Linmarie. Agree with all the other comments regarding cream. So with single cream. Less sugar that milk! Double cream even better but you may end up with high cholesterol…. Stick with the single and enjoy!
