Like "according to the last diabetes education class the new guidelines (this was in December 2009) state that you should count HALF of the sugar alcohols as if they are carbs since not all of the alcohol is absorbed, but some of it is. Example if you eat something with 10g of sugar alcohol, you should account for 5g as an intake of carbs... but seriously if you are only eatting 5G of carbs, you should be ok. :) "
