What is the Hidden Sugar Effect?
It's common knowledge that consuming foods with large amounts of sugar may cause your blood sugar to spike. But, did you know other types of carbohydrates may have the same effect on blood sugar? We call this the Hidden Sugar Effect. It's why a medium size bagel has the same impact on blood sugar as eating 8 teaspoons of sugar!* And that's just one example... many foods loaded with simple or refined carbs can have a similar impact on blood sugar. But at Atkins, we've designed all of our delicious bars, shakes, and treats to limit simple and refined carbohydrates to help minimize the Hidden Sugar Effect.
