Just thought you might like to hear about my new find, I was checking my e-mails yesterday and came across a site for "Blue Bunny"ice cream, guess what they make a sugar free ice cream that is OK for diabetics, if you check out the site for Blue Bunny you will see it. I think it's called Sweet Freedom, they give you the skinny on it, the carbs, etc. For anyone who has never tried Blue Bunny it is delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! at least the real thing is delicious so I can't imagine that the sugar free is not. I am on a mission to find this one, will inform you of where to look as soon as I find it.

I've had Blue Bunny Sweet Freedom vanilla bean and salted caramel bars. They're great tasting to me. The bars are no sugar added; of course there is sugar because it contains dairy. Of course these products aren't for everyone. I don't eat them every day; they're a rare treat for me. But for those who can and will eat something like the Sweet Freedom bars, they are quite good.

We have know about this for at least 5 years. You can find it at almost any grocery store. They make ice cream, ic sandwiches and cones, popsicles and fudge bars. They ahve been out for a long time.

Dairy products are bad for everyone, especially diabetics. The ice cream may be sugard free, but it still has fat, cholesterol, and animal protein in it. Some of the biggest sources of fat in our diet is dairy. I would stay clear of all dairy foods. Milk is linked to insulin resistance.

healthcoach97 2011-08-09 13:10:16 -0500 Report

No. I'm not a vegan at all. I don't eat a lot of meat. Very little. I eat more grains, beans, and green leafy veggies than anything. Just have done a lot of research on diabetes. Milk has been linked to insulin resistance. You're right, dairy does have a lot of fat in it. From what I learned at the Integrative Insitute for Nutrition, dairy is responsible for a lot of ailments. We learned that milk is meant to go out of the body (i.e. breastfeeding) and not into the body. In fact most people are lactose intolerant. Everybody's body is different. People react to foods in different ways. The Integrative Institute for Nutrition is one of the best nutrition schools in the world. So, the information is not based on opinion. It is based on facts provided by medical doctors who work with the school to develop the curriculum. I had the pleasure of attending lectures with Mark Hyman, and a host of other doctors who do research on this very topic.

jayabee52 2011-08-09 18:30:46 -0500 Report

You might want to revise your statement "milk is meant to go out of the body (i.e. breastfeeding) and not into the body." because it is on its face nonsense The fact that breast feeding is used means that it is intended to go out of mother's body into the baby's body. In fact breastfeeding in the preferred way of providing babies and young children nutrition.

Furthermore this rather dogmatic statement about Milk is contradicted in the Introduction (on page 2) in the book "Integrative Nutrition" by Joshua Rosenthal, the Integrative Insitute for Nutrition's leading light and founder.

I agree that "Everybody's body is different." I have said that repeatedly throughout this site and other sites.

I like to check things out. So I checked out the The Integrative Institute for Nutrition. And that it is "is one of the best nutrition schools in the world." may be your opinion and that of fellow students and faculty, but it is not an undisputed fact.

I have been reading a lot about your school and Dr Hyman (that's why my response is delayed) and I would doubt the American Dietetic Association or any university like the University of Nebraska or University of Maryland, any University having a dietician's degree course would concur with your assessment of "best in the world".

I am on The Integrative Institute for Nutrition website as I write this trying to get a feel for the coursework done there. What is required to be a health coach from that institute. What is the requirements to be certified. In fact I have several pages open from the institute. I am trying to determine for myself whether the coursework is as described in this critique of the institute from credential watch:. http://www.credentialwatch.org/reports/iin.shtml

I am trying to be fair, but I am unable to determine to my own satisfaction from the institute's documents how extensive the coursework is there. How many instructional hours are required to earn the certificate, and exactly what degree is conferred upon one who successfully completes the coursework.

And as far as Mark Hymann, is concerned, the kindest thing I can say is that he is EXTREMELY controversial. Some have even gone so far as to call him a quack. Yes he does have an MD. But many of his theories are really not backed up by scientific research.

I take issue with many of your statements above Ramona. To make such a blanket indictment of Dairy products.

From your remark about animal protein I would guess you are vegan. That is OK if you want to follow that lifestyle, but it is not OK to denigrate whole classes of foods for human consumption. I do agree that "[s]ome of the biggest sources of fat in our diet is dairy." But that is not necessarily as bad as your next sentence suggests.

We DO need some dietary fat consumption for optimum health. see http://www.freefitnesstips.co.uk/20-benefits-...

I also take issue with your last statement: "Milk is linked to insulin resistance."

Not so fast! It is not that simple. From a search of the liturature on "milk and insulin resistance" there were a number of interesting hits. One of which is this abstract which contradicts your last statement. Here it is:

"A growing body of evidence suggests an inverse relationship between calcium and vitamin D status and dairy food intake and the development of the insulin resistance syndrome (IRS) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (t2DM). Observational studies show a consistent inverse association between dairy intake and the prevalence of IRS and t2DM. In a systematic review of the observational evidence, the odds for developing the IRS was 0.71 (95% CI, 0,57–0.89) for the highest dairy intake (3–4 servings/d) vs. the lowest intake (0.9–1.7 servings/d). Few interventional studies have been conducted to evaluate the effects of dairy food intake on the management of prevention of IRS or t2DM. Intervention studies that have examined the independent effects of dairy intake on specific metabolic components of the IRS including blood pressure and obesigenic parameters have shown favorable effects that support the observational findings albeit the results have been less consistent. Many metabolic and dietary factors appear to influence the degree to which dairy affects IRS metabolic parameters including calcium and vitamin D intake status, BMI, ethnicity and age. Overall, the intake of low-fat dairy products is a feature of a healthy dietary pattern which has been shown to contribute to a significant extent to the prevention of IRS."

The abstract and the full text of the article is here should one wish to read it: http://www.jacn.org/content/28/Supplement_1/9...

This is not some hack job website, but a scholarly, peer-reviewed journal.

So the opinions you express is just that, your opinions. You profess to be a health coach. I would pray that any recommendations you make in the future be better researched and supported by scholarly scientific investigation.

Check out a website called yonanas.com. They have a gadget that turns frozen fruit into an "all fruit" soft "ice cream". I ordered one yesterday, and now I'm going to try the recipe for Baggie Ice Cream. That one sounds great, too. I just hope I can use rice milk instead.

I agree with all your points but wouldn't you rather have a "legal cheat" than an illegal one. No matter how committed to a diabetic diet you are everyone cheats sometimes, It's just nice to have relatively safe and legal choices. I did not advocate in my discussion that all diabetics should have ice cream every day, I just stated a fact about something new I had found that appealed to me and maybe to others.

jayabee52 2011-08-09 11:29:39 -0500 Report

Unfortunately those "legal cheats" give me the "hershey squirts" and I spend most of my time running to the bathroom until the offending ingredient is out of my system.

jayabee52 2011-08-09 11:54:24 -0500 Report

it is the artificial sweeterners, I eat small amounts of regular ice cream without incident. But that's just my digestive system. Other folks can use those without trouble.

I won't make the mistake of condemning all artificial sweeteners (or all milk products) for every one just because I (and a few others) have a problem with certain ingredients.

I just have to know what my system can tolerate, and what It cannot. We all have to do that as persons with diabetes.

I love Clemmy's ice cream. 100% sugar free. Many of the ice creams that say sugar free are really no sugar added - it's misleading. I read that Clemmy's is the only ice cream on the market that has no sugar. I really love the O's and the chocolate. They have many more flavors but I haven't been able to get them where I live. Has anyone else tried this ice cream? Here is the website btw http://www.clemmysicecream.com/

jayabee52 2011-08-05 07:03:27 -0500 Report

Howdy sunshine!

I tried the link you provided for clemmy's. That is interesting that they have taken out the Lactose. I like to read the labels and the ingredient list tells me I can't eat it. For the Vanilla bean flavor here's the ingredient list:

"Cream, Water, *Maltitol, Maltodextrin (Soluble Dietary Fiber), *Xylitol, Egg Yolks, Vanilla Extract with Vanilla Bean Specks, Guar Gum, Locust Bean Gum, Salt.
CONTAINS: Dairy, Eggs
*Sensitive individuals may experience a laxative effect from excess consumption of this ingredient"

(unfortunately I am one of those "sensitive individuals". ( actually I'm ultra sensitive to sugar alcohols in general)

And for 1/2 C serving it packs 160 cals and 20 g of carbs.

Hi James! A few months ago I posted a recipe for homemade ice cream. It's called Baggie Ice Cream. You can make it how you like, adding whatever flavors you want, use Fat free milk to heavy cream, & use whatever sugar/sugar sub you like. It makes one serving & takes about 10 mins. It's also a fun thing to do if you have kids/grandkids. or for a party. Everyone makes their own creation. :D

jayabee52 2011-08-09 08:56:36 -0500 Report

Yes I saw it, Barbara. It looks like fun.

I too have a problem with malitol and avoid it. They ruin a lot of SF candy and icecreams with that stuff, IMO.

My intestinal tract is safer if I just eat a little of the conventionally sweetened stuff. I am learning how to limit my consumption of such treats. I've had a problem with that in the past.

squog master
squog master 2011-08-09 10:31:45 -0500 Report

I hear you there. For many of us limiting the amount is a problem. I still do partake of the conventional ice cream treat on occasion also. My special ice cream I allow myself is Turkey Hill's Phillies Graham Slam Ice Cream. I have it during a Phillies game 1-2 times a week. I usually wait til around the 5th inning & if they are losing I have a serving. Fortunately they are not losing a lot this season. lol :}

I have a major problem w/Maltitol. If I have the tiniest bit I get severe stomach cramps. So I avoid Maltitol at all costs.

sunshine10021 2011-08-08 22:10:21 -0500 Report

Hi Jayabee:

I also have a sensitive stomach and was a little concerned but I ate just a little over 1/2 cup (okay, maybe a full cup lol) and I didn't have an issue. Maybe it differs for different flavors, but haven't been able to get the others yet. I did not have any problems with my sugar after, and as I am lactose intolerant I was surprised to have no reaction that way either. Do you recommend the Blue Bunny instead?

jayabee52 2011-08-08 22:13:25 -0500 Report

not necessarily. the store nearest me stocks the Blue bunny and it is less expensive, so that is what I usually get.

Brynne 2011-08-03 14:17:09 -0500 Report

I've tried the Blue Bunny prints, it is delicious, I don't even miss the sugar, which lets me know that it is the cream in Ice cream that I crave!

I can't remember now if I checked the lables of the Blue Bunny sugar free ice cream but 1 of the sugar alcohols in so much sugar free products gives me severe stomach cramps w/even the smallest amount. It is called maltitol. So I have to stay away from anything w/maltitol in it. Usually I just have a small portion of regular ice cream when I start hankering for the frozen treat.

cottoncandybaby 2011-08-02 10:11:32 -0500 Report

I had exactly the same thing happen! I bought a few weeks ago, Publix brand (Publix is the main grocery store here in Florida) Premium No-Sugar added Light Ice Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip flavor (my favorite). It tasted delicious, but within a few hours of eating it (small bowl) I had horrible gas and major stomach distress. I then heard on TV to look in the ingredients for Manitol or Sorbitol, either one can cause diarrhea and gas in some people who's systems cannot handle it. They said to just eat a very small amount, and see if it still has the same effect, but may be better to have just a tiny bit of regular ice cream instead. I was disappointed, too, as I thought this was the answer to all of our ice cream cravings! Maybe it does not affect everyone like it did me, but I have talked to a few others who also had the same experience, so you just have to try it. I do know the Blue Bunny brand is excellent, but if it still has the same ingredients listed, you will still have the same side effects.

jayabee52 2011-08-02 03:14:05 -0500 Report

Scroll down to close to the bottom of the page (July 30). I had gone to the Blue Bunny site and copied the ingredient lists for 2 of the flavors. Several sugar alcohols are there. I think Malitol was one listed. I have decided it is best to have a small portion of the regular rather than the "NSA" ice creams

Gemm 2011-07-31 11:40:18 -0500 Report

We found Blue Bunny ice cream several years ago in our local Wal-Mart and have been enjoying it ever since. I have to be real careful with things that say they are sugar-free as I am allergic to both aspartame and saccharin - things that are often used to sweeten things other than with sugar so I was thrilled to find that Blue Bunny as well as a couple of other brands do instead use Splenda and some of the "tol" sweeteners and not either of those that I have problems with. My husband though has to be careful with the ones that end in "tol" as they do have the laxative effect on him that is warned of on the labels.

The only disappointment though is the very narrow selection of flavor choices :( but that dims in comparison to not being able to have any ice cream LOL

Marytea 2011-07-31 10:04:58 -0500 Report

Thanks for the tip on Blue Bunny. I tried the Breyers Carb Smart Ice Cream Bar and it was awful. Splenda has a cookbook with ice cream/sorbet recipes. If you have an ice cream maker, they are pretty easy. I tried the chocolate sorbet. Yummy

Blue Bunny icecream is awsome! I love the triple strawberry. It is strawberry icecream, with big chunks of fresh strawberries and strawberry jam swirled through it.

melota 2011-07-31 08:02:40 -0500 Report

I have been using the Blue Bunny no sugar added ice cream for about 6 years now. I like it better than Blue Bell with sugar. Personal preference, of course. Again though, all things in moderation. I mostly find it at Wal Mart, and the choice of flavrs is good. I love Bunny Tracks.

Actually, Cynthia, I am very sensitive to sugar alcohols, that's why I checked the ingredients. I get the runs when I have either sugar alcohols ir Splenda. It's NOT pretty!

So if I eat ice cream at all I have a small serving of regular ice cream (like a drumstick cone). Doesn't spike my BGs and it generally satisfies me.

Regarding the fruit and the starches. If you read the labels I copied from the Blue Bunny website they mention that there are carbs from the milk sugars, the brownies and the fruits.

Any ice cream made with milk products will have some carbs resulting from the Milk sugars. It's one of the trade-offs I choose to make when eating ice cream.

Hello Jayabee52, Tell me something else. Did you go to college and /or university and graduate? What type of work did you use to do? You just seem so on the top of so many different topics that I think that you might have been a college professor or a teacher. I don't now every thing about diabetes or the different forms of sugar, I just read the labels and stay away from things that have sugar or different forms of sugars in them. My diabetes seems to know when things aren't going right. I get a spike in my sugars. So, please forgive those of us that are not as educated about diabetes as you are. Just glad that you are here to keep us on our toes.

jayabee52 2011-07-31 01:57:44 -0500 Report

No forgiveness needed Cynthia I was pretty green when I was first Dx'd 1n 1995, and was still pretty green when I first came to DC sometime in 2009.

I did go through college and graduate school and earned a Masters degree. But it was not in the medical field. I worked in that field for about 10 years until I had a series of major troubles which stressed me so much I had to leave it. (I even thought of doing something really stupid —- if you know what I mean).

I moved to a small town in the middle of Nebraska because the mother of my sons got a teaching job there. The only place that was hiring in that town was a Nursing home, so I enrolled in a class for training Certified Nurse Aides. Because of my masters degree education, I did extremely well. The only aide under that nurse who ever got a perfect score on the final exam. I worked as a CNA until we had to move to Las Vegas for my wife to get another teaching position. Once I was settled in LV and got my credentials transferred to NV I worked as a CNA in home health for about 10 years.

In the last 3 or 4 yrs of those 10, I also had hired out part time to a nursing agency which placed me in Hospitals, hospices and nursing facilities if they had an absentee worker and they needed one to maintain the state standards. I mostly worked in 1 or 2 hospitals. I only had availability every other weekend due to my regular agency required me to work every other weekend. Usually the hospitals were happy to have me, because I was a good worker with a good attitude. I often worked in the Emergency room as a CNA (which I enjoyed immensely due to the fast pace and always something different happening), or on a medical floor working a block of rooms. I learned a great deal in both the home health work and in the hospitals

In 2005 I had 3 ministrokes ("TIAs") which disabled me from doing CNA work. In Nov 2006 i got a kidney infection which nearly killed me and put me on dialysis. I learned a lot about that too.

In 2001 the mother of my sons decided to divorce me. I met a fantastic lady online (who I call "Jem")on a website called Dating4Disabled. We connected and fell in love. She had a great many "medical challenges" (as she laughingly called them). On top of being totally blind she had many other deadly conditions. Since she was blind it was easier for me to look up stuff for her on the internet, usually about some condition she had. I learned as much as I could about her conditions as I could.
She also had a Masters degree, in social work, (so we had about equal educations), and she was a consultant for physical therapy providers, and she had me look things up for her about that. She taught me things about psychology because she had training in that, and taught me many things about her conditions, some I learned by experiencing them with her.

Sometime in 2009 I came upon Diabetic connect and really liked it here, and as I said learned a lot here too.

To my sorrow Jem passed from this life in July 2009 at home with me, in the comfort of her bed. She just drifted off to sleep talking to one of her friends on the phone that evening, and she didn't wake up in the morning.

I continued on DC because I love it and its people here. I like to be challenged with a problem and do some research and try to find an answer. That seems to be the way my mind works the best.

So that is my story. I guess you can tell I like to write too, which helps me here.
Please excuse my rambling down memory lane. Thanks for asking, and for reading this tale of my life.

melota 2011-07-31 08:17:50 -0500 Report

I was also a CNA for many years, and worked in a nursing for several years, but was mostly doing private home work to try to keep folks out of a nursing home as long as possible. It is a rewarding job, but sadly the burn out rate is great. I had to give it up after suffering a broken tailbone from a fall on ice.

I lost the love of my life in 2004 to suicide. He was very ill and knew he was heading for the nursing home or me taking care of him. He was a very proud man. Having been a master cabinet maker for 40 years, he could not stand the thought of being an invalid. I was trying to reason with him when he put a shotgun under his chin and ended his life, and almost mine. I did not tell this for any shock factor but to let you know I understand your pain, and I am so glad you are here. It helps so much to talk to others who help just by listening as well as sharing their knowledge.

OH Sandy, that is SO SAD and HORRIFYING to learn that he did that in front of you, and almost took you with him.

Thank you for sharing that. I had "suicide ideation" for many years, but never made a gesture or an attempt. I had been contemplating stopping my dialysis treatments and let the condition "take me" (that was Just before I met Jem). but decided to continue treatment for the reason that I didn't want to give my sons the worst kind of example to follow WHEN their lives seemed to fall apart (as most lives seem to sooner or later). Had I followed my plan, I would have missed my time with a fantastic lady.

Making that decision to continue with my dialysis for the sake of my sons had another benefit. My suicide ideation went away completely. It didn't come back even when Jem passed out of my life.

Thank you so much for sharing your story. My dad was one that wouldn't have reacted well to being an invalid. He was cut down at 47 (I was 19) by a freak gunshot accident. He dropped a pistol which discharged and struck him in the neck, severing his spinal cord. He survived in ICU for 2 weeks and then got a massive blood clot which killed him. The Dr told mom "There are things worse than death". And for a man being as active as Dad was, being an invalid would have been one of those things IMO.

Being able to "talk" here is one of the great things about DC.

Prayers for blessings upon you and yours

I was interested in what they used to sweeten it, so I looked up the ingredient list: Here's the list for the Brownie Sundae flavor:

"INGREDIENTS: Fat Free Milk, Fudge Ribbon {Liquid Sorbitol, Lactitol, Water, Cocoa* Processed with Alkali, Food Starch- Modified, Potassium Sorbate (Preservative), Salt, Natural and Artificial Flavor (Contains Vanilla Components), Sucralose}, Polydextrose, Brownie Pieces {Unenriched Wheat Flour, Water, Sorbitol, Lactitol, Cocoa* Processed With Alkali, Pasteurized Egg Whites, Shortening* (Partially Hydrogenated Soybean And/Or Cottonseed Oils), Nonfat Milk, Polydextrose, Natural And Artificial Vanilla, Baking Soda, Artificial Flavor, Food Starch-Modified, Soy Lecithin, Salt, Baking Powder (Sodium Bicarbonate, Aluminum Sulfate, Calcium Carbonate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate), Xanthan Gum, Guar Gum, Sucralose}, Maltodextrin, Sorbitol, Whey Protein Concentrate, Glycerine, Grade A Whey, Carob Bean Gum, Mono & Diglycerides*, Cellulose Gum, Guar Gum, Corn Starch, Polysorbate 80, Carrageenan, Vanilla Extract, Vanillin, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium, Vitamin A Palmitate, Annatto (for color).
Excessive Consumption May Have a Laxative Effect in Sensitive Persons.
ALLERGEN INFORMATION: Contains milk, eggs and wheat.
DIABETIC WARNING: Contains Carbohydrates Naturally Occurring In Milk and Brownies. * Adds a Dietarily Insignificant Amount of Fat "

AND for the Bananna Split flavor:

"INGREDIENTS: Milk, Skim Milk, Cream, Pineapple Chunks and Cherries {Pineapple, Cherries, Lactitol, Water, Sorbitol, Polydextrose, Maltodextrin, Food Starch-Modified, Food Acids (Citric, Phosphoric, Malic, Tartaric), Sodium Benzoate and Potassium Sorbate as Preservatives, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Turmeric for Color, Red 40, Sucralose}, Strawberry Banana Ribbon {Strawberries, Lactitol, Maltodextrin, Water, Polydextrose, Banana Puree (Bananas, Citric Acid, Ascorbic Acid), Food Starch-Modified, Natural Flavor (Contains Strawberry and Banana Components), Carrageenan, Glycerin, Food Acids (Phosphoric, Citric, Malic, Tartaric), Red 40, Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate as Preservatives, Sucralose}, Chocolate Ribbon {Liquid Sorbitol, Lactitol, Water, Cocoa Processed with Alkali, Food Starch-Modified, Potassium Sorbate as Preservative, Salt, Natural and Artificial Flavor (Contains Vanilla Components), Sucralose}, Maltodextrin, Mixed Nuts (Cashews, Almonds, Brazil Nuts, Filberts, Walnuts, Pecans, Peanuts, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Salt), Sorbitol, Polydextrose, Whey Protein Concentrate, Glycerine, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Carob Bean Gum, Cellulose Gum, Mono & Diglycerides, Guar Gum, Corn Starch, Polysorbate 80, Carrageenan, Vitamin A Palmitate, Sucralose, Acesulfame Potassium.
Excessive consumption may have a laxative effect in sensitive persons.
ALLERGEN INFORMATION: Contains milk, cashews, almonds, brazil nuts, filberts, walnuts, pecans and peanuts.
DIABETIC WARNING: The small amount of sugar in Sweet Freedom comes from lactose which is a naturally occurring sugar in the milk used to produce this product. "

suggested serving size is 1/2 C for both.

And I am surprised they don't just have a plain Vanilla flavor in this Sweet Freedom product line.

Thanks for doing the home work on this one. It sounded good until I read all of
