People with Diabetes can actually eat chocolate?!
When it comes to chocolate, most people think of high sugar and high calories. As long as you eat a little, it will make your blood sugar spike and make you fat, especially for diabetics who need to control their blood sugar levels, chocolate is a taboo.
However, you may have some misunderstandings about chocolate. In fact, in the market, we can find ‘healthy’ chocolate. In addition to its low sugar and low calorie, it can also satisfy appetite, as well as having a low glycemic index.
Pay attention to product brand tips
The chocolates that are common in the market can be simply divided into three types: dark chocolate,milk chocolate and white chocolate.The main raw materials for making chocolate are cocoa liquor,cocoa butter,sugar and milk.Simply put, when the product is labelled with 70% chocolate, it means 70% cocoa liquor and cocoa butter, and the remaining 30% is milk and sugar.
Benefits of eating more chocolates
Most of the benefits of chocolate come from its cocoa ingredients. Cocoa contains natural flavonoids and is a powerful antioxidant. It can effectively reduce glycated haemoglobin, promote insulin secretion, improve the toughness of blood vessel wall, reduce the risk of thrombosis, oxidation and inflammation, and achieve the effect of maintaining cardiovascular health and regulating immunity.
According to clinical evidence, high-purity chocolate does not make people fat. Li Yuanyi, a famous doctor in the Japanese Department of Liverology, recommends eating 25 grams of dark chocolate* (equivalent to 10 Nature’s Farm Choco-lo low-glycemic index chocolates) in his book “Eating Chocolate Controls Diabetes”. Studies have shown that eating about 25 grams of dark chocolate a day can reduce the incidence of diabetes by up to 30%.
