But not only attracting aroma and unique taste attract people in this beautiful and brilliant berry. No less attractive is the vitamin and mineral composition. Strawberries are rich in vitamins A, C, E, K, PP and biotin. It is thanks to the latter that there is a decrease in the level of sugar in the blood, because the action of biotin is similar to insulin (it participates in the metabolism of glucose). The mineral composition of strawberries is no less useful in diabetes, because we are talking about reserves of potassium, calcium, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, sodium, supporting the functionality of individual organs and the body as a whole.
Strawberry, although it has a sweetish taste, which indicates a high content of carbohydrates, is very rich in fiber, which inhibits the absorption of these substances, which means that it does not cause a sharp increase in the level of sugar in the blood. Like hawthorn, strawberry contains choline, which helps to control weight in cases of metabolic disorders.
To use strawberries with diabetes is better in fresh form, because it keeps the maximum amount of useful substances. It is the ideal dish for snacking (helps to avoid hypoglycemia), can be included in the composition of light fruit and berry desserts, salads, cocktails, perfect for decorating dishes from flour.
