Quite a few are only slightly reduced and in some cases still higher than a competitors standard brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' doesn't always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are exactly the same.

Of course, you will need to ensure you only make use of fruit that is low in carbs and use the whole of the fruit as you need the fiber.
