'Diabetic foods'

Diabetes UK are calling for an end to the use of terms such as 'diabetic' or 'suitable for diabetics' on food labels.

This position statement is intended to help people with diabetes make more informed choices when buying foods, and to encourage manufacturers and retailers to label products responsibly.

Diabetes UK and the European Commission (EC) have concluded that there is no role or benefit from the use of diabetic foods. Diabetes UK will continue to work on influencing manufacturers and retailers to ensure that consumers are not misled by labelling food as diabetic or suitable for diabetics.
