A special carbohydrate blend

A special blend of carbohydrates is what sets Glucerna Nutritional Drink apart from other products, helping you manage wisely your carbohydrate intake. In fact, it is designed to meet the special nutritional needs of people with diabetes.

Complete satisfaction. That’s what you’ll be guaranteed when you enjoy a chilled Glucerna Nutritional Drink – as a meal replacement, a snack anytime during the day, or as a bedtime treat.

The available carbohydrate count is … 23 grams in each 237 mL bottle. Counting carbs is an important part of your nutritional management program. You can be confident knowing that Glucerna nutritional drink has been designed with your nutritional needs in mind.

A well designed fat blend

It's important to watch your fat intake, paticularly if you are living with diabetes. High levels of saturated fats – found in meat, high fat dairy products, and also in oils like coconut and palm – may raise your bad cholesterol levels – the cholesterol we refer to as LDL-C. Likewise, trans fats, found in some products like crackers and cookies, may raise your bad cholesterol.

Glucerna Nutritional Drink is made with adequate fat blend.

Nutrition made easy

Eating well is easy with Glucerna Nutritional Drink, which can be an essential part of your daily nutritional plan. A source of 26 essential vitamins and minerals, this nutritional drink also contains 1 gram of NutraFlora short chain FOS (scFOS).

A healthy product is what’s behind our tasty Glucerna Nutritional Drink, which is gluten-free and kosher. And it complies with the nutritional guidelines recommended by the Canadian Diabetes Association.1

So go for a walk, go for a swim, and don’t worry if lunch is going to be a little late today. Glucerna Nutritional Drink has you covered with the energy you need.
