What is Glucerna for?

Glucerna is a dietary supplement that is a complete and balanced nutritional supplement for people concerning diabetes. It has a combination of multinutrients to provide essential dietary requirements and a low-GI carbohydrate formula for low glycemic index, meaning it does not contribute to the massive rise in blood glucose level. It is therefore indicated for people who want to maintain a good blood glucose level, and as a meal replacement. Since Glucerna does not contain lactose, it is suitable for people with glucose intolerance.

How to use it?

Glucerna comes in powder form and has to be made into a drink.


For breakfast, put 5 scoops of Glucerna powder into 200 ml of boiled lukewarm water, while stirring and mix until dissolved.


For lunch and snacks, put 2.5 scoops of Glucerna powder into 100 ml of boiled lukewarm water, while stirring and mix until dissolved.

What are the side effects of Glucerna?
