Dear Pieteres
You will need to check each product's label to see how much fat, carbohydrate and energy it contains and then work out how you can fit these foods into your food exchanges. If you are diabetic and have not consulted a clinical dietitian, then it is essential that you do so and learn how to use food exchange lists. Check the List of Dietitians on this Website or phone 082-593-0276 or send an e-mail to sscharf@nhcltd.com or look in your local telephone directory or Yellow Pages, to find a dietitian in your area.
Best regards

I'm also a type 2 Diabetic and have used weigh-less products in the past as well.

Just remember that most of the weigh less jams and canned fruit products use fructose sugar instead of sucrose. Fructose can be consumed by diabetics in moderation, and the same rules as eating fresh fruit apply.

Hope this helps.
