    Hi could you tell me why baby corn as opposed to regular corn? Also do you know what vinegar does to your blood sugar? I like a lot of veggies soaked in vinegar and water as opposed to salad dressings but I am not sure if it is on my do not eat list.

    Vinegar is a great food for diabetics as it tends to lower our numbers. So have at it. It also is great for energy boosting.
