ExtendBar’s New High-Protein, High-Fiber, Low-Carb Bar


Nov 1, 2004

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.

The product analysis information given below is from the manufacturer.

The ADA’s position on sugar alcohols and other carbohydrates is that you may subtract one half of the sugar alcohol from the total amount of carbohydrate to determine the amount of carbohydrate to count in your meal plan. You may also subtract dietary fiber from the total carbohydrate content if the product contains 5 grams or more per serving.

Always monitor your blood glucose when trying new foods, and consult with your diabetes care team about how best to include these items in your meal plan.
