Peanut Butter and Diabetes?

 

Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com, researcher, writer and I have type 2 diabetes. Today I’m going to answer the question, is peanut butter good for diabetes. So who invented peanut butter? I bet you were going to say George Washington Carver right? Well, he did “invent” something similar to what we call peanut butter today. Marcellus Gilmore Edson was awarded U.S. Patent 306,727( for the production of peanut butter) in 1804.   Carver was merely 20 at the time. But possibly a little bit closer to which is something we use today was developed by Dr John Harvey Kellogg( yes, the cereal person) in 1895,  Then a St. Louis Doctor made a spread for this patients who needed protein but had difficulty chewing. This spread was first introduced at the St Louis World’s Fair in 1904. Regardless of who invented it, I really like peanut butter.

I personally am a Jif guy with all respect to the Skippy and other label devotees. Nutritionally peanut butter is a powerhouse. Two tablespoons of peanut butter contain approximately 12 grams of healthy poly- and monounsaturated fattens, and nearly 8 grams of protein. Peanut butter also contains no cholesterol. The carbohydrate contents of peanut butter is minimal, with less than 7 grams per serving.

The glycemic index of peanut butter is a extremely low-grade 14 which delivers the glycemic load to perfectly ZERO. Peanut butter will not elevate your blood sugar and it also helps regulate your blood sugar with all the amino battery-acids and proteins. When eaten with high-GI meat, peanut butter also helps lowering the spike of blood sugar after snacking. Carol S. Johnson, Ph.D ., guided a study at Arizona State University where researchers likened the blood-sugar levels of two snacks. One snack consisted of a buttered bagel and juice. The second snack substituted the butter with peanut butter which resulted in a minimal rise and fall of blood sugar, while the buttered bagel caused the level considerably more. So YES, peanut butter is very good for diabetes. Feed up! Merely be careful with the jelly!
