Diabetes Friendly Food

World Diabetes Awareness Month: It’s true, a diabetic diet can be restrictive, but when you have premium baking premixes like our NuMe Cake in a Cup in your pantry – a diabetes diagnosis doesn’t have to end the joy of indulgent eating. Thanks to our inspired product formulation and clever ingredient combining, diabetics can still enjoy a delicious treat that’s not so naughty. Food that’s interesting, healthy and won’t have a negative impact on sugar levels.

Along with a packaging facelift, our Cake in a Cup has recently been enhanced with the inclusion of separate sachets of sugar-free chocolate discs which add extra ooze and even more decadence to an already mouth-watering treat. The original premix itself remains unchanged and the Cake in a Cup is still made to the same high quality and honest standards.

Functional Food

Described as a guilt-free cheat that’s good for you – the premix ingredients include desiccated coconut, cocoa powder, and baking powder (Cream of Tartar and Baking Soda). Water, egg, and oil are added – and for those who are not diabetic with a craving for sweetness – honey, fructose or xylitol can be introduced.

Not just for diabetics – it’s suitable for those who follow a banting, paleo, wheat- and gluten-free lifestyle. This desert is low-carb (less than 2gm of carbs per serving), high in protein, and GMO-free. The credentials of the NuMe Cake in a Cup speak for themselves!

Baking Bliss

 Proving that baking doesn’t have to be complicated to be gourmet – you can make, eat and enjoy our Cake in a Cup in less than 10 minutes.

Described as versatile for good reason – you can add in nuts, berries, or nut butters to change things up. Once it’s cooked, top it with more decadence – like grated sugar-free chocolate or a dollop of cream. You can dress it up or down depending on how naughty you want to make it.

Conveniently packed in single serve pouches, our premix is for those who have an appreciation for good health – but still want convenience and great taste all in one serving.  It retails for around: R50 per box which comes standard with five sachets. It’s available from Pick n Pay, Clicks, independent retailers and all Dischem stores nationwide in the health and wellness or baking aid isles.

As a diabetic – healthy yet exciting eating starts with being prepared. So stock up on our baking premixes today. Other diabetic-friendly products in our NuMe range include: Chocolate & Pecan Brownie Mix, Chocolate & Pecan Muffin Mix; Bread Roll Mix; Bread Mixture and Instant Cereal.

Baking Tips

  • Always check the strength of your microwave – your cooking time will be determined by its power: 1.5 mins for stronger ovens and 2 minutes for slightly weaker ones
  • If you are introducing any chocolate into the cake mixture, watch that it doesn’t burn
  • When adding any additional ingredients like crushed pecans, you will need to add a little more milk or water than stated on the box
  • If you are using sweeteners like Erythritol make sure you mix in properly.  Erythritol makes the mixture liquid at the bottom
  • Turn out or eat straight from the cup
