Selection Of Food For Diabetic Patients

When selecting food for diabetics patients –for carbohydrates choose complex carbonhydrate rather than simple carbohydrate . This is because the complex carbohydrate has low glycemic index and are food of fiber .

Glycemic index means the rate at which glucose goes into the blood stream .
70-above is high glycemic index
70-50 is medium glycemic index
49-below is low glycemic index

Examples of complex carbohydrate are :

Brown rice ,whole wheat bread ,yam, plantain, fruits and vegetables . Beans ,oats , millet, sorghum, garri ,wheat.

Protein
Choose complete protein rather than in complete protein because the complete protein contains all the essential amino acid in their right proportion. But with the aid of protein complementation you can combine two incomplete protein to get a complete protein .

Animals proteins like fish , meats , egg and poultry .
Plants proteins like suya beans.

Fats and Oil
