Diabetes affects approximately 34.2 million American adults. If you have diabetes, you need to be even more careful about what you eat because it's the seventh leading cause of death
here in the United States. Diabetics must consider their blood sugar levels when choosing food, which means they can't just buy any type of food.
Cooking time and texture are different between steel-cut oatmeal and rolled oatmeal because steel blades cut the oats into smaller pieces
resulting in longer cooking times and a chewier texture than instant oatmeal, which is made with rolled oats.
According to Leah Johnston, RD at SRW, "[Oats] are complex carbohydrates, which means they are full of fibre." "When it comes to controlling blood sugar and insulin levels
the beta-glucan fibre found in oats plays a key role. Carbohydrates with fibre are digested and metabolised more slowly, which means that blood sugar levels rise less quickly."
In addition to being the best option for diabetics, steel-cut oatmeal is also one of the healthiest options for oatmeal in general, according to Johnston's findings.
Steel-cut oats are the least processed of all the types of oats, so they have a higher nutritional value and a lower glycemic index (about 53), according to Johnston.
The glycemic index of rolled oats is just slightly higher than steel-cut oats, which is around 57, but they are still a good option, as they are both steamed and flattened
Many toppings can be added to oatmeal in order to enhance the flavour while still keeping the dish a healthy option. According to Johnston, adding fresh fruit instead of dried fruit
