People with diabetes often avoid potatoes because they score relatively high on the glycemic index (GI). However, new research suggests that these starchy, tuberous crops may actually be beneficial for diabetics.
Prebiotics from potatoes improves insulin resistance.
Prebiotics from potatoes may also help prevent the development of diabetes. A study published in Frontiers in Medicine, Geriatric Medicine shows that a potato-derived resistant starch helps reduce insulin resistance and blood sugar levels in older adults. Known under the brand name MSPrebiotic, the natural, digestion-resistant starch positively affected the gut microbiota and blood glucose levels, according to the study.
