Pre-diabetes is a huge problem. Don’t let the little word “pre” fool you. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 96 million American adults (that’s a mind-boggling 1 in 3) are currently prediabetic!
Ask yourself, could that be you? And if so, what does it mean for your sweet tooth? Do you have to say goodbye to desserts for good?
What you need to know about prediabetes
You could have been living with undetected prediabetes for years; simply because you’ve not exhibited any symptoms yet, doesn’t mean it’s not lurking in the background.
If you’re overweight, over 45, have a family member with a history of type 2 diabetes, or you’re physically inactive, you could be at risk.
Prediabetes means that you have a higher blood sugar level than normal. It’s not enough to lead to a full-blown diabetes diagnosis, but it can be enough to increase your risk of suffering from a stroke, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
So How Can You Pre”vent”diabetes?
So at Simply Delish, we’re not qualified to dispense any medical advice. We highly recommend you speak to your practitioner and do your research if you are concerned that you have prediabetes.
But one recipe for prevention we can help you with is eating a healthy, low-sugar diet, and we’re so here for that.
Does low or no-sugar mean no taste?
Before you worry that having prediabetes confines you to a life without ever savouring a Delish dessert again…think again!

What’s in our Simply Delish protein powders?
You’ll find a Simply Delish protein is made from all-natural ingredients like pea protein isolate and fava bean protein which won’t cause any irritable or distressing digestive issues.
So many people are intolerant to the lactose found in many protein powders, so we wanted to address these allergens and sensitivities. It’s currently estimated that about 68% of the global population has lactose malabsorption!
While not everyone suffering from lactose malabsorption will experience digestive issues, again, as with prediabetes, surely prevention is better than cure? Especially when there are readily available products you can purchase that are super versatile and tasty too.
What you will find in our latest product range is highly concentrated dutch chocolate cocoa powder in our Keto Chocolate Protein Powder and delicious natural vanilla flavour in our Vanilla Keto Protein Powder.
We’ve also added sugar-free Stevia M extract, again making this the natural choice for the 1 in 3 Americans with prediabetes right now.
