style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Many of you have been
asking us about treating low BG (blood sugars) on Pesach/Passover.style="mso-spacerun: yes">  As far as we know there are no glucose
tablets that are certified kosher for Pesach---winkies and/or Rockets (which we
have been recommending for almost 20 years) are kitniyos and we do not know if
they have kosher certification for Pesach.


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Our
recommendations:


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Look for candies that
do not have a lot of ingredients after the sugar or glucose (that will slow
them down)

style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Milk products are
great for raising BG


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Most ready made
products for Pesach are very high in sugar--just important to watch the portion
sizes; it is easy to lose control.


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">We have talked about
sweeteners and have a funny animal pictures chart in our book but since there seems to be a need for
clarification we will repeat it here


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">There are very few
sweeteners certified Kosher for Passover mostly because the dextrose is
kitniyos


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Splenda in all forms
has a very good Kosher certification in
style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Israelstyle="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> but not for
Pesach
.  It is nice to know
that the liquid Splenda (0 calories and 0 carbs) is available with excellent
certification but not for Pesach


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">We recommend using a
combination of the few things available till you get to the taste that you
approve of. 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt"> 


style="FONT-FAMILY: Arial; COLOR: black; FONT-SIZE: 10pt">Most recipes call for
too much sugar to begin with.  In
all recipes you can cut down the amount of sugar called for using even less than
a third, and using only funny pictures powdered sugar (since it is aerated you might get along
with less than regular sugar) then use the packets and liquid (available in
Israel ) or what ever you have available till you get the sweetness that you
like.  style="mso-spacerun: yes"> Lemon juice in most recipes will help a
bit in covering up the after taste.

wonderful recipes in href="https://www.jewishdiabetes.org/enlightenedform.asp">color=#800080>EnLITENed Kosher Cooking there are many charts that are
helpful in getting started and keeping up a lifestyle of healthy eating,
including a chart (appendix 10 on page 396) with equivalent amounts of
sweeteners that can be very helpful as well.
