I've been eating small tins of baked beans recently (17g carbs) and they produce excellent blood sugar results after 2 hours. Thank Butter beans come in at 36 on the glycemic index so are classed as a low-gi food. I use beans all the time in stews and stir-fry's and have never experienced postprandial highs, try them and test afterwards to see what effect they have!

I love Sainsbury's Butterbean Continue reading >>

    I have seen a few things on blogs about people saying that a small serving at bedtime helps them not to have that am BG rise. Green beans have always been considered a diabetics friend. ! cup has 27calories, 6rams carbs, 3 grams fiber and 2grams of protein not too mention a treasure of vitamins. Also has a glycemic load of only 2(low is good). Of course living here in the south I have seen people put table sugar in a lot of vegetables that they cook. I used to love to put potatoes in mine but not anymore.
