Was away yesterday.
Debi, thanks for your link. They Zylotol is sugar alcohol. Doesn't count for diabetes but a lot of folks can't handle it. Plays hell with their disgestive system.
Debi, it's carbohydrate intake that Diabetics have to what out for. Total carb intake should be limited to about 200 gm/day. ALL grains, starchy veggies, fruit, beans, milk products and the like are relatively high in carbs. Refined sugar is not only a high carb product but is in a form readily easy for the body to absorb. In addition to a carb chart, another good piece of reading is the glysemic index charts. These charts group various carb containing foods into to groups based on how quick the body can digest and carbs absorbed. Shelled beans are high in carbs but it take the body a long time to digest so the carbs has min impact.
Fortunately, meat has no carbs. Q is in
if you don't over do-it on the sugar based rubs.
Those beef ribs I did last week had about 2/3-3/4 of one receipe of Jeff's rub had close to 300-400 carbs in it. Tasted great but not real good for me.
