Did you know that it is the total amount of carbohydrate of a meal or snack that most affects blood glucose levels, not whether the source of the carbohydrate is starch or sugar? High blood glucose levels can lead to pre-diabetes, which is closely linked to PCOS.
Incidentally, sugar-free does not mean carbohydrate-free. Look at the food labels to compare the total carbohydrate content of a sugar-free food with that of the standard product.
If there is a big difference in carbohydrate content between the two foods, you may in some cases want to buy the standard version if it offers fewer carbs and not too much sugar.
If there is little difference in the total grams of carbohydrate in the two versions, choose the one you want based on price and personal taste.
