 Forbidden Foods for Diabetics





5/5 stars      1 REVIEW
These foods for Diabetics are best avoided as they can cause harm to our health and have little or no nutritional value. These foods can escalate blood sugar levels almost instantaneously. Avoid food with high fats especially foods with bad or unhealthy fats.

Jaggery is a traditional unrefined non-centrifugal sugar consumed in Asia. It is a concentrated product of cane juice. Jaggery is best to avoid as this will again raise your blood sugar levels.

Jam refers to fruits or vegetables that have been prepared and canned for long term storage. So as far as you are concerned, we want fresh fruits and vegetables which are low in sugar. So any form of Jam will not work.

Sugar is a simple carbohydrate and when consumed has no nutrition and will push up your blood sugar level which is not good for Diabetics. Avoid sugar. Try having your tea without sugar or switch to green tea.

Honey is almost like sugar and hence on the avoided list of Carbohydrates you can use. With respect to carbohydrates, honey is mainly fructose (about 38.5%) and glucose (about 31.0%),making it similar to the synthetically produced inverted sugar syrup.

Jellies are rich in sugar and a good source of energy. Since they are high in calories, the weight loss seekers and diabetics should avoid using jellies.

Samosa, while it tastes good its not diabetic friendly. The same goes with other deep fried foods like Bhajias, Ganthia, Spring Rolls etc.

Avoid most sweets like Malai Peda, Barfi, and other Indian sweets.

Have fruits and not fruit juices. So an apple or orange is good for you but having their juice would require 3 apples or 3 oranges which is not good.

Ice creams are high in fat and contain milk and sugar which are not healthy for you. Skip full fat ice creams!
