Newsletter Excerpt: Diabetes "Superfoods"
“Superfood” is a term used by many food and beverage companies as a way to promote a food thought to have health benefits; however, there is no official definition of the word by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA regulates the health claims allowed on food labels to ensure there is scientific research to support the claims. The list of foods below are rich in vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber that are good for overall health and may also help prevent disease.
Beans: Kidney, pinto, navy, or black beans are packed with vitamins and minerals such as magnesium and potassium. They are very high in fiber too. Beans do contain carbohydrates, but ½ cup also provides as much protein as an ounce of meat without the saturated fat.
To read the rest of the "Diabetes Superfoods" list, visit https://www.diabetes.org. The information contained in this article is not a substitute for medical advice or treatment. Consultation with your doctor or health care professional is recommended.
