I was told that equal sweetener has a very high glycemic index. As a diabetic my sugars are very high and I can't lose weight. The packet says safe for diabetics. Now that I've given it up my weight and sugars are going down. I could only find information on this in one book. Where can I get more information. I think diabetics should know about this. They say at my diabetic clinic (one of the best in the country) they only lookat carbs and not glycemic indexes. :-S :-S :-S
