Can extracting cause sugar level spikes in a diabetic compared to partaking of a whole food?

Since extracted beverages are absorbed by the digestive system faster, can this cause sugar and insulin spikes in someone with diabetes? If so, what can be done to manage this?

Dietitian's Answer

Typically the more a food is processed the quicker it is absorbed...you are correct. We haven't done specific studies no how a NutriBlast affects blood sugar levels, however we have seen improved HgbA1C levels which gives us reason to believe that they are providing benefits to those with diabetes. However, everyone reacts differently and in order to help reduce any blood sugar spikes, we suggest choosing foods with less sugar - low glycemic fruits, protein, and healthy fats, along with high fiber veggies to help reduce the impact on blood sugar levels. Our LEAN program includes great recipes to help keep blood sugar levels balanced.
