Selected BEST Pizza by the Diabetic Educators(9/05)
With our High Fiber Thin Crusts and with the addition of Inulin Fiber there is NO RISK of Sugar Spike!
The Inulin fiber is unique because it serves the digestive system not only as an excellent water carrier to the lower intestine but also becomes a probiotic nutrient for the natural coating bacteria. Fiber absorption through the upper intestine is almost non-existent therefore eliminating the sugar spikes that are normally associated with the bodies metabolizing of pizza.
Below is a statement from Dr Tom Raifi:
My love affair with AC LaRocco is personal…I LOVE pizza! BUT, I’m also a metabolic nutrition, weight management expert. So I’ve found just about every healthy, tasty comfort food option that exists. With my skills, I’ve successfully beaten back the demons of type 2 diabetes and overweight. I know better than most the important balance of food choices it takes to do so…. AC LaRocco is a RARE find where great pizza taste comes without all the guilt! In my opinion, as both a serious “foodie” and expert in nutrition – AC LaRocco is THE best example of how pizza can fit into a healthy lifestyle! PERIOD. (Dr. Tom Raifi Board Certified Physician Nutrition Specialist & Profesor of Medicine)

Here is what our Diabetic friends are saying about AC LaRocco Pizza:
My father is diabetic and a very picky eater.I purchased a garlic chicken parmesan pizza for him to try and he loved it and his sugar levels did not go through the roof! Thank you for a quality product that I can trust to feed my family!
I just want to thank you for your delicious food! After being diagnosed as a diabetic early last year, I had a hard time giving up my favorite foods! I was ecstatic to find your products!
I’m a mother of one, with another soon to arrive. At 24 weeks into my pregnancy, I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. Pizza, like so many other things I enjoy as an occasional treat, would be out of the question due to the blood glucose-spiking nature of the flours they use.
I was thrilled to find your whole grain Greek Sesame pizza at our local Raley’s supermarket, and even happier to find that I could enjoy a full portion without a significant rise in my blood sugar. Best of all, my five-year-old son enjoys it as much as “regular” pizza! I don’t see us ever returning to our former frozen brands once the newest member of our family arrives and I’m no longer following a strict glycemic index-controlled diet — yours are far too delicious and nutritious to give up!
“I have recently found your Spinach &; Artichoke Thin Crust Pizza and I love the taste. I am a diabetic and am pregnant and I appreciate the care you’ve taken to include all natural and delicious ingredients. The wholesome ingredients along with the low carb factor makes this a perfect meal that fits with my diet plan.”
I recently purchased a frozen tomato and feta A.C. Larocco pizza. I had never tried it before, never heard of your company, but was drawn to the package while looking for quick meal option that was not full of preservatives and sodium. Needless to say I was quite impressed with the quality and flavor of your frozen pizza. I decided to check out your website and am even more pleased with your products, my father is diabetic AND quite picky, and I love how you take the time to address diabetics on your website. I do not know of many product websites that do that – in fact I do not know of any unless they are specifically tailored for diabetics. I purchased a garlic chicken parmesan pizza for him to try and he loved it and his sugar levels did not go through the roof! Thank you for a quality product that I can trust to feed my family!
Diet, Diabetes and AC LaRocco Pizza
Medical experts believe that the current worldwide diabetes epidemic is largely due to changes in diet and lifestyle. Obesity is also an epidemic and the connection is clear. Low fiber intake, high intake of trans fats or saturated fats and decreasing physical activity play a huge roll in the Diabetes/Obesity cycle.
