What can dramatically enhance the flavor of virtually any dish, sometimes changing the taste of the dish entirely? The answer is simple – a sauce. Even if a dish is perfect on its own, the right sauce can elevate the taste of the dish to a more sophisticated level and make the dish look more appetizing and complete. In other words, sauces can easily alter your entire dining experience.

That is why professional restaurant kitchens, especially larger ones, usually have one or more sauce chefs in their ranks. The main role of a sauce chef, who is actually one of the most respected chefs in the kitchen, is to created sauces and gravies for the dishes that the restaurant produces.

Creating a sauce is an art in itself and when it comes to their variety, the sky is the limit. But for people with diabetes the situation with sauces is a bit tricky. – Many sauces are completely off limits to diabetics due to high carbs, sugar, fat or sodium content. Even an absolutely otherwise healthy dish can easily become unsuitable for a person with diabetes when combined with a carb laden sauce.

So when buying sauces or condiments in a store, always read labels on those bottles or cans with appetizing content and when eating out, stay away from barbeque sauces, ketchups, and creamy sauces.

The safest way for you to avoid blood sugar spikes is to make sauces yourself. This way you will know exactly what ingredients go in there. Although some sauces can be quite complicated to make, there are many more delicious sauces that can be made at home without having to be a professional chef. Here are a few of our favorite dishes with sauces that you can easily make in your own kitchen and treat your family and guests.
