The surprising food that can control blood sugar levels
New research out of the UK has found that a type of pea known as the wrinkled 'super pea' can prevent sugar spikes after a meal.
Scientists from the Imperial College London, the John Innes Centre, Quadram Institute Bioscience and University of Glasgow combined to produce the new study.
It is believed that by incorporating wrinkled peaks into meals can help tackle the type 2 diabetes epidemic as the blood sugar spikes contribute to the onset of diabetes.
The wrinkled peak contains higher amounts of resistant starch which lasts longer in the body and ends up being fermented in the large intestine, rather than in the small intestine.
