One wine that diabetics can drink safely

One wine that diabetics can drink safely image

Diabetics shouldn’t drink wine—but a healthy substitute is a blueberry-blackberry drink that looks and even tastes like the real thing. The superfood concoction isn’t only a consolation, it can also reduce the symptoms of type 2 diabetes, say researchers.

The drink, which is made up of fermented blackberries and blueberries, has been developed by researchers at the University of Illinois.

The berries are fermented at low temperatures, a process that produces more anthocyanins, antioxidants in the fruits' pigments that increase insulin sensitivity, reduce blood glucose levels and improve insulin secretion.

The fermentation supercharges the fruits' natural diabetes-beating qualities, the researchers say. Their drink is made up of 70 per cent fermented blackberries and 30 per cent fermented blueberries. Although de-alcoholised wines already exist for diabetics, most are made from grapes, and these don't carry the same health-giving qualities as the berries, say the researchers.
