Is honey a no no? I would have thought off limits but various articles say ok!
Various dietary advice for type 2’a
81% carbs... hmmm let me think about that for a second..
Thank you @bulkbiker - I thought so. Never mind - another one of my joys gone. I shall continue with my glass of Pinot Noir!!
I think honey is higher in fructose than sugar, so some might recommend it on the grounds that it might not raise blood glucose levels as much as sugar. Fructose may not be the innocent natural sweetness we're led to believe it is by some product manufacturers though - it has negative metabolic effects that @JimLahey will better explain than me.
I noticed supermarkets still selling pure fructose in the sweeteners aisle. Big jars of it.
Diabetes in a jar.
Who are they written by?
You've only got to have one look at the 'Honey Monster' and know it's not worth it!!
Bee keepers of America?
I’m afraid my honey days are now long over but thank you for confirmation
Depends. If I have a meal of meat and caramelized chicory, using only a teaspoon of honey for the caramelising I still have a very low carb meal (zero for the meat, up to 3 or 4 grams for the chicory, not sure how much a big potion of chicory weighs, as good as zero for the butter to fry, honey 4 to 5 grams), less than 10 grams of carbs a meal.
The same goes for a teaspoon of honey (4 to 5 grams) in your bowl of Greek yoghurt (200 grams of yoghurt is around 6 grams of carbs), which makes for a breakfast of around 10 grams of carbs.
Bearing in mind that in mediaeval times diabetes was known as the honey disease, I should say no.
That refered to pee being as sweet as honey...
I like honey especially sugar bag from our native bees, there is a hive on our property that gets robbed occasionally.
<sighs> I just have a taste nowadays though </sighs>.
I like how Jim is saying flat out "no".
I wouldn't touch honey, date sugar, white sugar or anything because well, it makes my BG rise to unspeakable levels and it's not worth my insulin for it.
It's only useful in hypo situations.
Not going to try it....
Well, there's a useful thoght if you love honey!
It’s actually very easy to work out whether or not you can consume various food and drink with Type 2 Diabetes....if it looks tasty and enjoyable, then you can’t eat it in the main.
