Diabetic Information for Thrive Life Foods

Thrive foods and white dishes

Did you know that almost all of our food ingredients have no added sugar! Our labels show all nutrition information, which makes it easy to tell if it will fit in with your diet, just like foods in any other grocery stores.

(A couple of foods that do have added sugar are the Sweetened Cranberries, and the Yogurt and Coconut Bites Snackies.)

Here are some testimonials of actual consumers of Thrive Life foods:

I’m a diabetic and when I cook with Thrive, my fasting sugars are always lower! I also was able to drop my a1c from 8.2 to 6.9 in a three month period by incorporating the foods not only in meals but also as snacks. I get the crunch and sweetness I crave from fruits and veggies instead of chips. They are easy to take in any amount I need to get through the day. I love making different combinations even mixing the fruits and veggies. The beet, carrot, and spinach crisps are so awesome as well!! The yogurt bites are also a favorite.”  -DWG

“Very diabetic friendly! All the foods are actually measureable (1 cup of apples vs. approximately a cup). My ex was diabetic. I would premeasure fruits & veggies then label the containers with the grams of carbs & protein.”  -AE

” My husband is diabetic. Has been for about 20 years… The most important thing to remember is, it is food. Pineapple is still pineapple! If they need to limit it fresh, it won’t be different with Thrive. More convenient but nothing changes. My husband loves the corn but he can’t have all he wants. Peas, potatoes, and some of the fruits spike his blood sugar. He loves the berries as they are low glycemic and fresh isn’t always available. The express meals are limited but they are great with a salad. He just can’t eat as much as he wants without looking at the calories, carbs and fat content.” -LD

” I speak as a diabetic and my A1C has come down to 6.4. (From 11, in 3 months). Quinoa is a much better choice than pasta. But if yo sub in Dreamfields pasta to the pasta dishes, you will get much better glycemic response. No difference in taste but they use an ingredient from white kidney beans that somehow binds the starch molecules. They used to put it on the box that it is 8 net effective carbs, compared to 40 in other pastas. They quit putting it in there because not every person is the same. So you need to check BG a couple hours after eating it to see how it affects your blood sugar. Even with Dreamfields and quinoa, though, a person with diabetes has to still be responsible with their carb intake and accept their limitations. I can eat one reasonable serving of the quinoa dishes but not pile up my plate, as I was prone to doing before diabetes. How Thrive has really saved me is that I choose some of the products I might not otherwise consider for snacking. For instance, I like the dry cauliflower very much as an evening snack, rather than chips or popcorn. Also the butternut squash is a great snack negligible carbs on both. I can eat a cup of any of the fruits for approx 50 calories. The freeze drying process makes them have that same yummy crunch as chips, but not the same greasy carbs. Its a process figuring it out, but worth it. I’ve even lost a few pounds.” -DH
