Laura Burak, MS, RD, author of Slimdown with Smoothies and founder of Laura Burak Nutrition, recommends whole grain bread as the best bread for diabetics, according to her medical board.
Burak recommends that diabetics and non-diabetics alike eat bread produced with full grain flours. "However, bread is one of the most baffling foods on the market," advises the author.
When someone is diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, it's common knowledge that they should avoid all carbs and bread products
This,on the other hand is just not true.As important as it is to reduce your intake of refined carbohydrates & sweets,consuming whole grains can actually benefit those with diabetes or those at risk.
A lower risk of type 2 diabetes was found to be connected with a larger consumption of whole grains in a recent study published in the British Medical Journal. As part of our study we looked
at the health benefits of whole grains such bread,oats,brown rice and wheat germ.What is the source of these advantages? High fibre content is a major reason whole grains are beneficial for diabetics
CDC recommends fibre because your body is unable to digest and absorb it in the same way as other foods, so you don't experience a spike in blood sugar.
White rice and white bread are both high on the glycemic index, while whole grains have a far lower rating. Basically, this suggests that whole grains have a less effect on blood sugar levels.
