I love french fries but worried about too much calories and carbohydrate you solve the problem of calories by low fat fries option but what about carbohydrates for diabetics

   The carbs from potatoes remains unchanged. Hence the low cal fries option is a healthy alternative only for those who wish to cut down on some calories and have it occasionally. In no way we suggest this recipe for diabetics.
