Atkins Products and Net Carbs
When you do Atkins, you count Carbs not calories, and the Carbs you count are actually Net Carbs. Here's what you need to know about the Carbs in Atkins-brand products.
Not All Carbs Behave the Same Way in Your Body
Atkins Nutritional products are formulated to minimize the impact of carbohydrates on your blood sugar level. While most Carbs — sugar is the best example — are digested and turned into blood sugar, other Carbs behave differently. Some are digested but not turned into glucose and some — such as fiber — are not digested at all and pass through your body as waste. Neither of these types of Carbs has a significant impact on blood sugar levels.
What Carbs Are in Atkins Products?
The products use sweeteners such as sucralose (Splenda®), glycerin and sugar alcohols such as maltitol. Polydextrose is both a sweetener and a bulking agent, or fiber. Fiber, glycerin, maltitol and Polydextrose are all forms of carbohydrate that have a minimal impact on blood sugar.
The Atkins Net Carbs Seal
The Atkins Net Carbs Seal lists the number of Carbs people doing Atkins need to count. It subtracts all carbohydrates such as fiber, glycerin and sugar alcohols, which either are not digested or are digested but have a negligible impact on blood sugar. The percentage and number of grams of total carbohydrates appear on the Nutritional Facts Panel on the back of the label. The number of grams that remain after the fiber and sugar alcohols are subtracted appears in the circle, the Atkins Net Carbs Seal, on the front of the package.
