Mustard and diabetes

I read that mustard is good for lowering BG, I think it's the vinegar. Seeing as I work for the largest mustard mfg in north America I have access to a lot of it. How awkward do you think the owner would find it if I stroll out to the plant a few times a day and just stick my face under the bottle filler? :smileyhappy: Actually I am going to start eating a little more and see if I notice a change.

I put mustard on just about everything. As far as I'm concerned, a day without mustard is like a day without....well...something.

Re: Mustard and diabetes

I have had really good luck with vinegars ,  especially loads of malt vinegar on my fish and (couple of) chips !!!!!!           To make my pork ribs less fatty and nice and tender I boil them in some cider vinegar before I put them on the grill.   I love mustard too, can't have a ham sandwich without it.........LOL

I love mustard except for Dijon. When it's Dijon day at work I get nauseated. :smileyhappy:

LOL--thanks for the laugh!! I'm not crazy about mustard, but if it will lower my BG, I could learn to love it!

Re: Mustard and diabetes

Read somewhere that it's the tumeric that is the beneficial ingredient in mustard.  Vinegar gets good press, too, but the article was about tumeric.

Oh don't be sad. 

Its the smell of it when it's being made, so I can't think about eating it.

Re: Mustard and diabetes

I love mustard, but I don't know how anyone could eat enough at one time to have much effect on their BG.

The mustard I eat is Hot English. I defy anyone to eat that in portions larger than a small teaspoon.
