Up until now, you may have been under the impression that all measuring cups are created equal. I mean, a cup is a cup is a cup, right? The truth is that not all measuring cups are created equal. In fact, the ones we’ve been using offer more information on choosing healthy portions of body-fueling foods than most of us really ever thought was possible. Nutriportion Measuring Cups ™ are created from a flexible, easy-to-use material and highlight calories, carbohydrates and carb exchanges for many of your favorite foods based on the size of the cup you are using.
For the diabetes patient, Nutriportion Measuring Cups™ highlight the carbohydrates and carb exchanges for many of your favorite foods. Each of the four sides classify foods based on carbohydrate levels and group them together so you know how many carbs are in ¼, 1/3, ½ and 1 cup of each food, such as granola, rice or pasta.
For the health and nutrition conscious, Nutriportion Measuring Cups™ help you understand the calories in many of your favorite foods. With everyday foods like popcorn, beans, dried fruit and raw or cooked vegetables, monitoring and tracking your calorie intake is made simple with these measuring cups.
No matter your language, you’ll find Nutriportion Measuring Cups™ easy to read and understand. All of the helpful information on the measuring cups is in both English and Spanish. According to the CDC, Hispanic/Latino Americans are at a particularly high risk for Type 2 Diabetes. So, providing diabetes education and resources to this group within our population is particularly important.
Whether you are looking for a new set of measuring cups for your personal kitchen, or you’re a dietitian searching for the perfect resource for your patients, these measuring cups will not let you down. They’re the only ones I use in my kitchen for many reasons, including the ones listed above. Plus, they make great giveaways for your nutrition or diabetes programs. I can even say that I’ve been known to give these as gifts to friends and family members as well as door prizes at conferences and events. Wherever I’ve taken them, they’ve always been a hit!
