If you are one of the 24 million people in America that suffers from Diabetes, The Good Bean is the snack for you!
Diabetes is a condition where there is too much sugar in the bloodstream, because of the body’s inability to properly process sugars. This can result in a variety of health issues, like heart-disease, eye problems, kidney problems and so on.
Here’s the good news. Diabetes is a manageable condition. With the right foods, exercise, and constant monitoring of blood sugar levels, people with Diabetes can lead active, healthy, and happy lives.
And here’s the rub. A lot of foods, particularly starchy snack foods, cause spikes in blood sugar, and are an absolute no-no for Diabetics. The food industry tries to address this with a variety of over-engineered nutrition bars and snack foods that are filled with artificial ingredients and less-than-tasty sugar substitutes.
Diabetics, fret no more! The Good Bean is the perfect food for people with Diabetes. The secret to The Good Bean’s success is its amazingly low Glycemic Index (GI).
What’s that, you ask? Here’s a quick primer: Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of how much a food causes your blood sugar to spike. Remember, the greater the spike, the more dangerous the food is for Diabetics. The GI of chickpeas is 14, while the GI of sugar is 60! Chickpeas can attribute their low GI score to the substantial amount of slow-digesting fiber they naturally contain.
So Diabetics, welcome to the world of The Good Bean. A simple, wholesome, real-food snack that just happens to be good for you!
