Can these white foods actually have a positive impact on blood sugar?
Can this color actually help you fight diabetes?
You won’t want to miss this list, because some of these foods may actually produce better results than certain current diabetic drugs!
1) It doesn’t matter if you eat coconut out of the shell or use coconut milk or coconut oil, this versatile white food is an extremely healthy diabetes-fighting choice. There’s only one coconut product that’s guaranteed not to help, and that’s coconut sugar. Coconut sugar has the same glycemic index as refined white sugar, and, in fact, it isn’t made from the coconut itself. It comes from the sweet, sugary nectar of the coconut flower.
2) Parsnips have a low GI of 52. Even when boiled and mashed, it contains so little digestible sugar that it shouldn’t cause a large rise in glucose levels
3) Live yogurt can help lower blood sugar. Fermented foods, like live yogurt, will add needed probiotic bacteria to the gut, and these bacteria make a huge difference to how our bodies process certain foods.
4) Cannellini beans, are chock-full of fiber. In fact, while ½ a cup of these beans contains about 19 grams of carbohydrate, they also contain 5 grams of dietary fiber. They also supply about 8 grams of protein per ½ cup, which further helps your body with glucose regulation.
5) A 100 gram serving of white button mushrooms contains about 2 grams of protein, plus about 10% of the recommended daily intake for both iron and potassium. And one study showed that eating just 100 grams of button mushrooms every day for 16 weeks can lower the level of compounds which cause chronic inflammation in type 2 diabetics.
6) Cauliflower is a particularly good choice for diabetics as it contains extremely high levels of 2 special glucosinolates – SINIGRIN (cin-e-grin) and GLUCOBRASSICIN (gluco-brass-i-sin).
Multiple studies have shown how both of these glucosinolates may slow or even stop inflammatory processes, which can be crucial for improving insulin sensitivity.
7) Half a cup of egg whites will give you 25% of your daily RIBOFLAVIN intake. Riboflavin is a powerful antioxidant which helps muscles absorb glucose. That means they’ll aid your body in lowering your post-meal blood sugar.
8) Sesame seeds are high in protein, vitamin B1, and dietary fiber. They are an excellent source of phosphorus, iron, magnesium, calcium, manganese, copper and zinc. But as well as these important nutrients, sesame seeds contain a very special blood-sugar-lowering substance called SESAMIN.
