Diabetic sweets – Nutritional value in Rasgulla

Diabetic sweets – Nutritional value in Rasgulla

Let’s face the reality. People do not eat sweets like rasgulla or jalebis keeping calories in mind. They are consumed purely for joy and pampering the sweet tooth. And when one has to choose between diabetes control and a bowl full of succulent juicy rasgulla, temptation wins most of the times.

Certainly not a diabetic sweet, rasgulla is full of calories even though it is made of cottage cheese which in fact has some health benefits. First, the sugar syrup in which the cottage cheese dumpling floats in is the culprit. It spikes blood sugar levels and so is not advisable to be included in a diabetes diet chart. However, having one rasgulla once in a while if your diabetes is well controlled might not be harmful.

While opting for diabetic sweets that are made with sugar substitutes, it is important to read the nutritional value table. Check with your diabetes doctor if the sweetener used is safe.
