Yes, I just got my first Mocktail mix. We will see!
I was under the impression that alcohol is processed by your liver into fat (well, acetyl CoA anyway), not glucose. This is kind of like how fructose is processed. Thus, actual alcohol should have very little affect on blood sugar even though it is a carbohydrate. That said, many alcoholic beverages are filled with carbohydrates that ARE processed into glucose. In Germany, they call beer, liquid bread! Also, excess alcohol being processed into fat leads to fatty liver, which is also a bad thing for diabetics!
