According to diabetes news, eating pistachio nuts lowers blood sugar levels, making them an ideal healthy snack.
Experts at the University of Toronto reportedly commented: “Pistachio, when eaten with high carbohydrate food items like white bread, may actually slow the absorption of carbohydrates in the body, resulting in a lower than expected blood sugar level . Therefore, these nuts can help control diabetes in a country like India where 40 million people suffer from the disease. This figure is likely to go up to 80 million by 2025.”
The lead researcher of the study, Cyril Kendall, reportedly commented: “Controlling blood glucose level is important for preventing and controlling diabetes . Our preliminary findings demonstrate that suppressing the glycemic (blood sugar) response of high carbohydrate foods may be part of the mechanism by which pistachio contributes to the prevention and control of diabetes .”
