Exchange Lists Updated
The American Diabetes Association in partnership with the American Dietetic Association have updated their Exchange Lists.
Foods in the exchange list are categorized into carbohydrate, meat/meat substitutes and fat groups. Starches (bread, cereal, pasta, rice), fruit, milk, other carbohydrates, and vegetables are carbohydrates. Meat/meat substitutes includes meats, nuts, eggs, and cheese. Fats include oils, butter, mayonnaise, etc. Foods in each group are listed in portion sizes so they may be used interchangeably.
The most striking changes with the updates include:
