Quick and fun fact before you start with the radishes. Radishes appeared for the first time in the United States in Massachusetts in 1629. Does it have anything to do with where or not they are good for people with diabetes? No, but if you're ever in Jeopardy and that question comes up, you owe me money.
Radishes are a root vegetable, grown and consumed throughout the world. The most common use of radish is as crunchy as a salad.
Most of you already knew that I am sure. But you knew that radishes are full of nutrients, vitamins and antioxidants. Research has found that the addition of radish in the diet helps balance the blood glucose level due to its antihypertensive properties.
Radishes are very low in carbohydrates and calories. A 1-cup serving of sliced raw radishes contains only 19 calories, 4 grams of carbohydrates, 2 grams of fiber and 1 gram of protein. Radishes are also rich in vitamins and minerals, with 29 milligrams of calcium, 270 milligrams of potassium, 17 milligrams of vitamin C and 29 milligrams of folate per 1-cup serving.
Now when I said radish, I'm sure this is what came to mind.
But did you know that there are several varieties of radishes available throughout the year? And they vary in size, taste and color. But one of the really good things about radishes is that they all share the same nutritional values.
For the person with diabetes, it is well documented that radishes have a low glycemic index, which means that eating them does not affect blood sugar levels.
Now I've only had those little red and raw radishes. But while I was researching this topic, I literally saw thousands of radish recipes. Everything from soups to drinks and cakes.
So, radishes are good for the person with diabetes? Yes they are. What is not good about them? High in fiber, low in calories and carbohydrates? They even contain enough water to keep you hydrated. The radishes are really good!
