Jerusalem artichoke is also known as diabetic potato for good reasons. Scientific studies confirm that Topinmbur has many beneficial properties in the diabetes diet thanks to its diabetic ingredients. In addition to the low glycemic index of 2, the many vitamins and minerals, it is mainly the multiple sugar inulin that makes Jerusalem artichoke so special. Inulin has a harmonizing and optimizing effect on the entire metabolism. The appetite-suppressing effect and the only slight increase in blood sugar levels are further positive features.
Diabetic potato and diabetes diet
The tuber has significantly less calories compared to potato and above all offers a lot of potassium. Jerusalem artichoke is considered an excellent substitute for potatoes and is widely used in diabetes therapy . The multiple sugar inulin is mainly degraded in the large intestine. As fiber, it swells up in the stomach and intestine by absorbing water. It reduces appetite and has a long-lasting, satiating effect . Since the multiple sugar is mostly mined in the colon , the blood sugar level increases only insignificantly . If you are injecting insulin, you may need to adjust your amounts in consultation with your doctor. Jerusalem artichoke is also considered a prebiotic, ie a built-up food in the diabetes diet.
The modern diet offers little work for the positive bacterial strains in the intestine. Jerusalem artichoke contributes significantly to the dulling of positive cultures in the colon. The entire metabolism is optimized, the food intake and evaluation is improved and the intestinal health can be increased. There are Suditudes that describe Jerusalem artichoke as an effective means of preventing colorectal cancer . Scientists believe that taking 5-10g of inulin per day has a positive effect on gut health. Thus, with a daily intake of 8 g inulin, a tenfold increase in the positive bifidus batteries was observed.
