Lisa Thompson of Lorena, Texas, was one of those people, until H-EB Food Stores introduced its line of no-sugar-added pies last November. "I had not tasted a cherry pie before," said Thompson, who was diagnosed with diabetes as a child. Because the H-E-B pies has no added sugar, she was finally able to sample cherry pie, as well as the apple variety. "It was wonderful, and better than the pre-packaged recipes," she said. Kristy Ozmun, manager of public affairs for H-E-B in the Central Texas Division, said the response has been tremendous since H-E-B bakeries began selling no-sugar- added pies. "In many areas, the no-sugar- added pies are selling better than the regular pies," she said. The pies have been called "sugar- free," but Ozmun explained that the pies contain real fruit fillings and that some of the sweetness comes from the fructose in those fillings. The bakers, however, do not add sugar. Instead, the pies are sweetened with aspartame, which Ozmun said is the same artificial sweetener used in Equal. She also said the crusts are made with polyunsaturated shortening, which helps keep the fat and cholesterol content to a minimum. The pies are part of a growing trend — more stores, restaurants and food processors are responding to consumer demand for no- sugar, no-fat desserts. While diabetics can enjoy such desserts, they should carefully monitor their daily intake. Beverly Whitehead, clinical dietitian at Providence Health Center in Waco, said that often times diabetics pay too much attention to the claim being made by the product instead of the actual nutritional information.
