Est ce qu'un diabétique peut manger madeleine ?

Can a diabetic eat madeleines?

Diabetes requires special attention to diet. People with diabetes need to make wise food choices to keep their blood sugar levels under control . One of the frequently asked questions is whether a diabetic person can enjoy a delicious madeleine without fearing for their health? In this article, we will explain the things to check to have fun without feeling guilty 😉

The madeleine recipe generally consists of flour, eggs, sugar, butter and yeast. These ingredients can influence blood sugar levels, but moderation and choosing alternatives can play a crucial role for people with diabetes.

👉 Alternatives to white sugar

White sugar will automatically spike your blood sugar, which is why we recommend switching to low glycemic index sugars such as coconut blossom sugar or agave syrup ! We do not recommend sweeteners which, in addition to adding flavor to your recipe, are not recommended by the WHO (World Health Organization).

👉 Alternatives to white flour

On the flour side it's the same, during digestion, white flour will transform into sugar for our body. The best is therefore to choose wholemeal or legume flours which, in addition to being more nutritionally interesting, will help keep blood sugar levels stable.

👉 Portion control

Obviously, even if the recipe for your madeleine is interesting in terms of nutrition, you should not in any case exaggerate on the quantities! But on a classic portion , it will easily fit into a balanced diet.
