What would a Christmas feast be without a cake to complete it? However, for individuals with health conditions, such as diabetes, finding a suitable cake can be quite a challenge. Here at Homage, we believe that everyone should have the chance to join in the festive fun. Read on for a handy dandy guide to diabetic-friendly cakes you can try in Singapore!

What makes a cake suitable for those with diabetes?

As you may know, there are two common major types of diabetes—Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. The former results from the inability of our pancreas to produce insulin for our body and the latter results from the body developing resistance to insulin over time.

No matter which type of diabetes you have, managing your diet carefully is necessary and the key to staying healthy. Generally, when making dietary choices, persons with diabetes should follow the following nutritional recommendations

  • Choose carbohydrates that are rich in nutrients and fibre
  • Avoid excessively sweet food products
  • Opt for free fructose, which are naturally occurring sugar in foods 
  • Consider foods made with artificial sweeteners or sugars, such as Sucralose or Aspartame, which do not affect your insulin levels
  • Avoid trans and saturated fats

If you’re taking insulin to manage your diabetes, it’s best to consult a medical professional for exact advice on making your dietary choices. 

With this in mind, diabetic-friendly cakes should have the following general requirements: 

  • No or low-sugar content
  • No or low trans and saturated fats
  • Have a low Glycaemic Index (GI) number

With this, here are nine bakeries that offer diabetic-friendly cakes in Singapore — ranging from sugar-free to low-sugar options.

Our recommendations for a jolly festive celebration

1. Delcie’s Desserts and Cakes

Known in Singapore for specialising in diabetic-friendly cakes, Delcie’s Desserts and Cakes offers delicious and healthy desserts for persons with diabetes. 

Rather than using cane sugar which has a high GI of 80-85, Delcie’s uses three different types of low GI natural sweeteners in their cakes: organic stevia, organic coconut sugar (GI 38), and organic agave (GI 15). Their cakes, however, still taste as sweet as normal cakes! It is highly recommended that PWDs consume sweeteners that have less than 55 GI points, making Delcie’s bakes perfect for a Christmas sweet treat.
