These drinks are great to throw in a purse or gym bag when in a hurry. they are filling and full of vitamins. The chocolate flavored ones are smooth and taste like chocolate milk. I always wait until they go on sale, and get good value that way.
It was okay to drink once in awhile. I felt it had a slight aftertaste and did not help craving to eat more. More useful when you do not feel like eating but want to make sure you getting proper nutrients that you need. It serves that purpose for diabetics and it comes in various flavours.
I have always found the flavors a little strange but being diabetic these are a great way to get the extra nutrition you need with out having to eat so much sugared products. The price is'nt too bad
Good substitute drink for a diabetic. Flavors taste very good. Lots of nutrients. Very good as a snack or meal replacement. Serving size/bottle could be a little bigger.
On utilise ce produit depuis plusieurs années; c'est ce qui nous permets de conserver une meilleure santé malgré quelques problèmes génétiqes soit diabète et autres. C'est génial qu'un tel produit existe. Bravo, par contre c'est assez dispendieux mai on surveille les rabais.
i do have issue with price but they give out coupons so much and are on sale all the time. They taste great and I like them because the Debates thing.
being diabetic myself and always on the go sometimes eating on time everyday is hard so i am thankful

Key to Glucerna products is their unique blends of slowly digested carbohydrates. "Slowly digested" means that sugar is not immediately broken down and absorbed into the blood, which helps avoid peaks in blood sugar. Consistently maintaining optimal blood sugar levels over time can help reduce the complications of diabetes.
Contains 26 essential vitamins and minerals
Supplemented with 1.9 g of fiber and 1.13 g of FOS‡ in each 250 mL serving
Glucerna contains a modified fat blend high in monounsaturated fat. The Canadian Diabetes Association recommends consuming monounsaturated fat instead of saturated fats more often.1
How does Glucerna work?
Diabetes is a disease in which the body is not able to use nutrients normally. This results in high levels of glucose in the blood, which can damage tissues and cells. To control glucose levels, people with diabetes must usually follow a healthy diet (among other management techniques), but it's not always easy.
Clinical studies show that the slowly digested carbohydrate system in Glucerna provides more consistent blood glucose levels when compared to a standard medical nutritional liquid.2 The fat blend (high MUFA, low SFA)* is consistent with dietary recommendations. The complete range of vitamins and minerals supports overall good health. And Glucerna Nutritional Drink is available in a range of flavors for a convenient meal replacement or snack.
How is Glucerna different from other products?
Glucerna provides a unique, slowly digested carbohydrate system specially designed for people with diabetes. Its effectiveness in providing more consistent blood glucose levels when compared to a standard medical nutritional liquid2 has been demonstrated in clinical studies. The macro nutrient profile (carbohydrate, fat, and protein) in Glucerna is consistent with dietary recommendations. It contains a high-MUFA, low-SFA* fat blend. And the convenient choice of liquid in a range of flavors supports compliance with a healthy diet.
