Unsweetened cocoa powder is one of the cocoa meals you can add to your diabetic management plan; it comes with less than 50g of carbs and sugar.

Gone are the days when people suffering from diabetes were made to crave for piece of chocolate for months. Various studies by scientists have shown that Dark Chocolate can be consumed by people suffering from diabetes but of course in moderate and controlled portions.

If not consumed in moderation, chocolate drinks like packaged hot chocolate can raise blood pressure and pack on pounds, as they are loaded with sugar. The high saturated fat content in whole milk can raise bad (LDL) cholesterol, increase inflammation, and worsen insulin resistance in the body

People suffering from type 2 diabetes can consume up to 20 gms of dark chocolate per day. This helps to increase the sensitivity towards insulin and helps control glucose levels. The increased sensitivity towards insulin also helps to prevent the development of type 2 diabetes with people already suffering from prediabetes.

Consumption of dark chocolate though good for diabetics, must be allowed only in tandem with the dietician and should be adjusted in the meal plan very efficiently so that it does not turn out to be detrimental to the patient. One must check on dark chocolate allergies as well, so that complications are kept at bay.

So go binge, that little piece of back gold is awaiting you!
