What is loved by children, and adults alike? What can be had for breakfast, snack, or any time of the day? Yes, they are biscuits. They come in chocolate flavor, with cream, salted, and in all shapes and sizes. There are rolled biscuits, drop biscuits, scones, digestive, and arrowroot; biscuits are never out of fashion!
However, can people with diabetes include biscuits in their diabetes diet plan? Let’s find out.
Can people with diabetes eat biscuits?
Biscuits sure are a great way to keep off the growl in the stomach. They are excellent when it comes to satiate hunger. However, the amount of carbohydrate and fat content in biscuits in general seems to steal the simple pleasure of dunking a biscuit into that favorite cup of coffee or tea.
Having said that, there is no harm including biscuits made with whole grain dough, and nuts in your diabetes diet plan. In the case of nut biscuits, going for gluten-free, home-made biscuits and cookies made from fat-free milk and measured quantities of either brown sugar or powdered sugar is better.
One can also opt for sugar substitutes after consulting a diabetes doctor.
Carry a few of along with you while moving out in order to avoid low sugar levels!
