Because we are unaware of your particular health concerns and the guidelines your medical team has given you, we really can`t say with any degree of certainty that this Fruitcake recipe is suitable for you. Still, as the recipe author labeled it as `diabetic` it suggest that it, at the very least, meets the minimum specification for the label `diabetic`, being low in fat and carbs and consequently should be healthier than a typical non-diabetic recipe. Even taking that into consideration, this Fruitcake recipe must only be used if you understand your own condition and are happy that the recipe contents are appropriate for you. /pSTRONGFruitcake Recipe - Important Disclaimer/strongPThis Fruitcake Recipe is part of our STRONGdiabetic Cake recipes/strong section. Obviously, it is completely inconceivable for us to check every single one of the EMdiabetic Cake recipes/em to verify that all of them are completely OK for diabetes sufferers. Our site has over 2000 individual recipes in it, and to check each recipe even at a speed of one every 24 hours would occupy us for more than 6 years. Our advice is to analyse the nutritional content to verify that all the recipes are compatible with the diabetes nutritional guidelines your medical advisors have provided. If you feel that this Fruitcake recipe is wrong, please let us know we will withdraw the problem recipe from our recipe site. /p
