Desserts are just great temptations when a person has diabetes. Diabetes may seem like a disease that will limit a person’s way of living life. However, many diabetic patients swear their disease is really bearable as long as there is proper management. This means that a diabetic must be careful in the food that is consumed.
One of the favorite desserts of all time is the cheesecake. Its luxurious blend of cream cheese, crust, and toppings are just too hard to say no too. Since it is a dessert and sugar is definitely used in it, diabetics must often say no and torture themselves with the need to abstain from this dessert. Finding the right place where diabetic-friendly cheesecakes are sold is the key.
Knowing what goes into the cheesecake is the key. Many use ordinary graham crackers as the base of their crust. This can be improved. Whole wheat crackers are a healthier option. The commercial crust is usually loaded with fat, salt, and sugar, as it was made from a crust base commonly seen in stores. Whole wheat crackers used as base contain loads of fiber and also come with more flavor.
When it comes to the cream cheese fillings, diabetic-friendly bakeries make sure all these are made especially for the delicate diabetic patient. This means giving attention to the dietary requirements with an emphasis on the amount of sugar placed in the filling. Many diabetic-friendly bakeries use sugar alternatives to sweeten the filling without having to use normal amounts of sugar as these are harmful to the diabetics.
