As per report you can load up that juicy corn on the cob with butter and other high-calorie toppings. But one plain ear of corn has about 100 calories, similar to an apple. And with nearly 3 grams of fiber per serving, corn can help you feel full longer, so you are less likely to overeat and pack on the pounds. Then there's its resistant starch, a slow to digest type of carbohydrates that is been shown to help with weight control.
Meanwhile corn is sweet for a vegetable but there are only 6 grams of
natural sugar in a medium-size ear of corn. An ear of sweet corn has less than
half the sugar of a banana and only about one-third the sugar of an apple. Even
beets have more grams of sugar per serving than corn.
Only a small percentage of sweet corn grown in the U.S. is genetically
modified, according to the USDA. Most GMO corn is used in processed foods like
corn chips, breakfast cereals, high-fructose corn syrup and corn oil, or turned
into livestock feed and ethanol. Moreover if you are concerned, choose
USDA-certified organic corn, or ask the vendors at your local farmers' market
how their corn is grown. GMO crops are banned under organic standards.
Diets to be taken for Sugar Patients Leafy green vegetables are extremely nutritious and low in calories. They're also very low in digestible carbs, which raise your blood sugar levels. Spinach, Kale and other leafy greens are good sources of several vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C. In one study, increasing vitamin C intake reduced inflammatory markers and fasting blood sugar levels for people with type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure.
