Chefs Tips

  • Recent research has found that along with some other berries including raspberries and blackberries, blueberries can help to regulate blood sugar levels in people that have already been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
  • People who consumed three servings of low GI-fruits a day saw a significant improvement in their blood sugar regulation over a three month period.
