Diabetic food refers to the food that is marketed for people with diabetes. There are no rules on what foods the term "diabetic" can carry, which has led the Food Standards Agency and the charity for diabetes, Diabetes UK, to demand the end of the use of the term.
Foods labeled as diabetic may have lower amounts of sugar than other options available.
However, because there are no official regulations on the use of the term, foods labeled "diabetic" may have no advantage over alternative options.
Diabetes UK and the FSA argue that there is rarely any benefit in the selection of so-called "diabetic foods".
