Diabetics Acid-Alkaline Foods: Oils-Beverages-Sweeteners-Condiments

For diabetic to use the Diabetics Acid-Alkaline Food Chart below she or he needs to abide, at the same time, by the Alkaline Diet rule as well as the Glycemic Index rule.

Alkaline Diet Rule

Accordingly our daily dietary intake should include at least 80% of alkaline-forming foods and not more than 20% of acid-producing foods. Being our body design the more a product is alkaline-forming the better it is for our health; on the contrary the more a food is acid-producing, the worse it is. Consuming too much acidic foods generally creates body conditions conducive to most chronic diseases including diabetes.

Glycemic Index Rule

In the Diabetic Acid-Alkaline Food Chart given below foods are grouped in four categories depending on their glycemic index GI:
  1. Foods with almost no carbohydrate (GI~0): They are written in green color; diabetics can eat them freely.
  2. Carbohydrate foods with low glycemic index (GI 55 or less): They are written in black color; people with diabetes may consume them, but with moderation.
  3. Carbohydrate foods of high glycemic index (GI 56 or more): They are written in red color; diabetics should better as far as possible avoid this kind of foods.
  4. Processed food products: To decide whether or not to eat a food of this category diabetic should refer to the manufacturer’s label to see the actual value of the glycemic index which may be either (GI~0), or (GI 55 or less), or (GI 56 or more).

If you want to know more on glycemic index (how it's measured and its values for different foods) please consult The Glycemic Index of Foods – American Diabetes Association and The University of Sydney - GI Database.
