It may be sugar-free, but it isn't carb free - I think there may be about 5g carbs per stick, but don't quote me on that - it's been awhile since I bought any. I do use it occasionally without any ill effects.

I haven't had any problems with gum but have with sugar free candy. I over-indulged and should have read the warning on the pack that said consuming too much can give you an upset stomach. It did! :puke:

Oh yeah if you are type 2, and a little "backed up" then there is nothing like downing a bag of reeses sugarfree peanut butter cups or a bowl of sugar free ice cream to get the ole plumbing working normal again!

It will have you doing that "green-apple two step" for a good afternoon or so. :dance:

I really like the IceBreaker's Ice Cubes gum. It's 2 carbs/piece and lasts a long time. I've had no issues with it, and chew it every day.

Ice Cream Substitute

I know this is an old Post, but I felt i had to share the gum I found this week end... Extra Dessert Delights. It has 2 Carbs from Sugar Alcohol and I need to say after dinner when others were eating Ice Cream I was happy with my Mint Chocolate Chip Chewing gum. Highly recommend it
