Foods Made With Yellow Pea Flour May Help Diabetics Manage Their Disease

September 30, 2009: 07:00 AM EST
Cheap, readily available whole yellow pea flour can be used to make functional low-glycemic foods that may help diabetics, according to a study by Canadian researchers. Managing glycemic responses – changes in blood sugar levels after eating – has become an important research issue with diabetes on the rise. In the study, the glycemic responses of 19 healthy people were monitored after eating banana bread, biscotti, and pasta made with pea flour or whole wheat flour. The foods made with pea flour uniformly reduced glycemic responses more than the whole wheat foods, and were found to have satisfactory taste and texture.
