Another good and informative series of articles from http://www.diabeticlivingonline.com/
With this one I’ll be posting all their Bread catergory’s and winners.

Taste-Tested & Diabetes-Friendly

Do you avoid the bread aisle just to escape the confusion felt by so many carb-conscious consumers? It’s true: Bread is a tricky product to buy, especially for people with diabetes. Now you can return to the bread aisle with confidence — thanks to a list of products that recently received the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval. Our staff and dietitians picked through the loaves to find those that met our nutritional guidelines. Next we brought in more than 100 people, including PWDs, to taste the brand-hidden products. The top breads, buns, tortillas, and English muffins were awarded the Diabetic Living What to Eat™ seal of approval.

Nutritional Guidelines
Every bread tested had to meet these health requirements per 2 slices, 1 tortilla, or 1 bun:
— 150 calories or less
— 3 g total fat or less
— 1.5 g saturated fat or less
— 0 g trans fat
— 30 g carb or less
— 300 mg sodium or less
— At least 2 g fiber

English Muffin Finalists

The finalists in the English muffin category were sturdy but had a soft and chewy texture. Note: Per muffin equals top and bottom.

Sara Lee English Muffins Made with Whole Grain Original
Per muffin: 140 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 210 mg sodium, 27 g carb., 2 g fiber

Fiber One Original English Muffins
Per muffin: 100 cal., 1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 230 mg sodium, 23 g carb., 6 g fiber

English Muffin Winner

And the winner of the English muffin category is:
Weight Watchers English Muffins

Per muffin: 100 cal., 0.5 g total fat (0 g sat. fat), 230 mg sodium, 22 g carb., 5 g fiber

Taster’s comment: “This eats more like a bread. Nicely moist and good chewiness.”

Why it won: This English muffin stood out among the others because it was light and soft, and tasted great. These English muffins are not presplit.
