In the United States, more than 25 million children and adults live with Diabetes – that’s 8 percent of the population (source: CDC). Diabetic bodies don’t properly use insulin, an essential hormone that converts sugar, starches and other food into energy for daily living.
The American Diabetes Association encourages the consumption of vegetables and fruits, especially non-starchy veggies like spinach, broccoli and green beans; choosing whole-grain foods over processed grain products (brown rice or whole wheat noodles); centering meals on beans, lentils and fresh fish; and eating lean cuts of meat. Hiller’s stocks many manufactured foods expressly for diabetics. Check out our selection of diabetic-friendly foods today!
