Not sure about Smucker's, but I know Polaner's Suger Free Blackberry Preserves with Fiber is very good!
(per 2 Tbl: 10 cals, 0 fat, 5 carbs-3fiber, 0 protein)

I have the Polaners sf strawberry with added fiber and it's Really good. Kinda thick but a little goes a long way. I add it into my almond flour muffins. Yum!

I prefer the Polaners with fiber over the Smuckers SF also. I couldn't find apricot in my stores but netrition has it.

hello there, new member here an this is my first post. i actually just bought some smucker's sugar free seedless blackberry jam today and was wondering about the whole net carbs thing. it was my understanding that you subtract the sugar alcohol from the total carbs, and if thats the case then is this jam really only 1 net carb per serving? seems a lil too good to be true. anyway, i'm hoping that one of you veterans can enlightening me as to whether i'm on the right track or not. thanks in advance!

to LCF Jeffery! I'm following a program by Dr. Richard Bernstein that is written for diabetics. Dr. Bernstein is not in favor of subtracting sugar alcohols because some of them cause blood sugar spikes which increase the need for insulin - something that a low carb diet is trying to minimize. Probably the worst sugar alcohols for me are maltitol and sorbitol.

Even the sugar alcohols that don't have much impact on blood sugar (xylitol, inulin, isomalt, and others) sometimes cause serious stomach upset and bowel problems. I would caution you to be very careful of these - especially in low carb candy!! The sugar alcohol found in the sweetener truvia and the xylitol found in sugar free gum do not seem to affect my blood sugar at all so those I do subtract. Confusing I know!

I'm sorry that my answer isn't really an answer, but others who specifically follow Dr. Atkins will probably chime in as the day goes on with more info.

thanks for your response Mobear! i guess i've been lucky, haven't seen any negative affects (tummy/bowel probs) from sugar alcohols at this point. i don't eat them much (maybe once or twice a week), but atkins peanut cluster bar and carmel nut chew bar have been a go to snack when my sweet tooth kicks in. and as far as the blood spikes, i don't even know how to know whether that's the case or not. spose i don't know to much bout that as i'm not a diabetic. i do however stay in ketosis even when i eat stuff with sugar alcohol though. not sure if that's an indicator or not. as mentioned in my previous post, i'm still a newbie to the diet.
