If you have any experience with diabetic foods in your grocery store or pharmacy please share with our readers at Battling Diabetes.
Here’s a run down on the most visible products on your retail shelf. The goal for all these products is to provide nutritious prepackaged convenient meals for diabetics.
Fifty/50: Half Our Profits Fund Diabetes Research
Fifty/50 not only provides diabetic supplies but also foods for diabetics in the familiar red package.
“FIFTY 50 was started in 1990 with only 3 products made especially for people with diabetes. We had the idea that if we gave 50% of our profits to diabetes research, people would buy our products. Now, we’ve grown to be the leading company offering a full line of foods for people with diabetes (over 30 products). More importantly, we’ve donated over $10.5 million to diabetes research.”
I was unable to resist the low glycemic hearty oatmeal cookies and tossed them in my cart. Sweetened with fructose, the nutritional information of these and all their products are on the website.

Glucerna products, which includes cereals, meal bars, snack bars, shakes and more provides what they call “slowly digested carbs” for diabetics.

Ensavor is the creation of Allison Chemical located in Englewood, Colorado, a company that you may recognize as a producer of medical syringes.
I noticed them on the shelf because of the crisp and non medicinal looking packaging. They offer the convenience of mail order shopping if you haven’t seen them in your local stores.
Ensavor provides instant meals which look yummy with these benefits:
- Great tasting. So satisfying, you won’t know it’s good for you.
- Convenient package. Simple to pack, carry, and store.
