    I read somewhere that fresh Cherries are good for diabetics. Anyone know if that's true?

    I haven't heard that they have any particular health benefits for diabetics.

    However, I always have packets of frozen cherries (and other berries) in the freezer. 100g of cherries is around 11g of carbs. Makes a great dessert with double cream :lol:

    Again I haven't heard they do much for diabetics but they do help a lot with gout. They contain something that stops the crystals forming which cause gout.

    The best ones are from Sainsbury's they are ripe and black. Some others are not as good.
