According to a recent study, eating foods with slow energy release could help people with diabetes to control their blood glucose levels better than high-fibre foods. The study showed that low-GI foods such as nuts, beans and lentils helped diabetics more than foods rich in fibre like wholemeal bread and potatoes .
To reach their conclusions, the researchers studied 210 people who ate low-GI or high fibre diets . The study lasted for a six-month period and was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
An Italian food company, Barilla, and the Canadian institutes of health research funded the study. Low-GI diets were developed for people with diabetes, and follow the principles of a healthy diet .
