CALIFORNIA RAISINS. Sweet. Naturally.
We hope you enjoyed the 2017 Today's Dietitian Spring Symposium this month. And, we hope you sampled some tasty raisins and had a chance to read the research at our table. If not, a summary is below:

Given the magnitude of the diabetes problem, and knowing that the nutritional quality of foods is one factor that influences glucose levels and cardiovascular disease risk among patients with T2DM, a first-of-its kind study was conducted with California Raisins and patients with T2DM.

This 12-week study among 51 individuals with T2DM found that regular consumption of raisins — as compared to a variety of other snacks — positively impacted both glucose levels and systolic blood pressure. The research, published in The Physician and Sportsmedicine journal, revealed study participants who consumed one ounce of raisins three times a day for the duration of the study, as compared to a group that ate a comparable amount of other snacks, were shown to have:
  • 23 percent reduction in postprandial (post-meal) glucose levels
  • 19 percent reduction in fasting glucose
  • A significant reduction (8.7 mmHg) in systolic blood pressure
The study was conducted at the Louisville Metabolic and Atherosclerotic Research Center (L-MARC) by Harold Bays, MD, medical director and president of L-MARC and funded by the California Raisin Marketing Board.

*Cardiovascular disease is affected by a variety of factors.
It’s time to take a fresh look at a classic.

 

CALIFORNIA RAISINS ARE PART OF A HEALTHY, WELL ROUNDED EATING PLAN FOR THOSE MANAGING T2DM.
