"Not suitable for diabetics"

I am a type 2 Diabetic and was delighted to find an ice cream which I thought I could eat without affecting my sugar levels. However, after eating this product with fresh strawberries, my sugar level reading rose significantly (from 9 to 16). Obviously, as a diabetic, I am advised to keep my readings at 9 or below. Looking at the product's nutritional information, the carbohydrate per 100g is 19.7g of which sugars is 13.8g. It's worth noting that Wall's soft scoop vanilla carbohydrate is 10g of which sugar is 9g. It also says on the carton that fructose has a low glycaemic index - my readings didn't comply with that!! I will not be buying this product again. I get very irritated by companies who mislead the public through their marketing ploys.

    Diabetes Uk and the NHS advise against using diabetic foods cos they are normally a con :)
