A survey of 106 dietitians at the ADA Annual, Food & Nutrition Conference & EXPO this past year showed that over 75% of them would recommend a carb-control supplement to their clients, according to a survey analysis issued.
“The response highlights the challenge of getting clients to adhere to a meal plan when it comes to consuming carbohydrates,” said Laura Garrett, MS, RD, CDE who administered the survey on behalf of Pharmachem Laboratories, Inc.
“Normally, carbohydrates should make up 45-60 grams of a meal plan for adults trying to control their weight, or maintain health blood sugar levels,” said Garrett. “Our analysis showed that 28% of the dietitians believed their clients are consuming more than 76 grams of starch per meal. When asked if they would recommend a product like Phase 2 Carb Controller™, which has been clinically shown to reduce the digestion of dietary starches, the vast majority said yes.”
“Consumers need carbohydrates, but often they eat too many of these comfort foods leading to weight and blood sugar issues,” continued Garrett. “Consequently a supplement that helps reduce starch digestion and absorption can be a valuable tool in helping consumers adhere to their meal plans.”
