Diabacor(TM) Discusses the High Value of Fiber for the Diabetic

July 23, 2014

Diabacor(TM) offers information on the many health benefits of increasing fiber in diabetic diets.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Diabacor(TM) knows how difficult eating with diabetes can be. There are foods that must be completely cut out or reduced to help control blood glucose levels, and those can be foods that other most people eat nearly every day such as sodium, sugars, and most carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are often one of the hardest items for people to cut out, because they are found in many different meals and give people energy, but for a diabetic, it is vital to cut out starches that will break down to sugar in the body. Fortunately, whole-grain breads and pastas, oats, and other foods that are high in fiber can be a great alternative to wheat flower, because fiber does not break down in the body like carbohydrates do. Fiber also has additional benefits for diabetics.

Starches and most other carbohydrates are broken down into sugar by the body, making foods that are high in carbs a bad choice for people who have diabetes. However, fiber is not broken down by the body, so foods that are high in fiber as opposed to other carbohydrates do not have the same effect on the body. Further, fiber has actually been proven to make monitoring blood glucose levels easier because it slows the rise in blood sugar after eating, preventing blood sugar spikes. Fiber also makes people feel full faster, which is an additional plus for everyone, not just diabetics. Diabacor(TM) advises that diabetics should eat between 44 and 50 grams of fiber a day to experience these benefits.

Foods that are high in fiber include fruits and vegetables, but the skin should be left on these when eaten because that is where the fiber is. Whole-grain breads and pastas are also a great choice and should be substituted for products made from white flour, though these items still have sugars so diabetics should read the labels carefully. High-fiber cereals and oatmeal are also great choices to include in the diet, and Diabacor(TM) shares that oats can be substituted for flower and breadcrumbs in many common recipes.

By including foods that are high in fiber into their diet, Diabacor(TM) knows that diabetics will be able to more easily monitor their glucose levels and lead healthier lives. For more information on healthy eating for diabetics, visit http://www.diabacor.com/.
