Diabetes Diet

Butter with type 2 diabetes

The peculiarity of the diet in the case of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus is that the patient should lose weight or at least not gain weight. Food should be balanced and low-calorie. Restrictions and prohibitions are imposed on fatty foods. Is it acceptable to use butter in the diet for type 2 diabetes? How much it can be used without damage to the patient's body?

The benefits or harm of butter

Fat product, prepared on the basis of cow's milk, is an important component of a varied diet. The norm is the total intake of all fats in the amount of 110 g per day. A large proportion (70%) are organic substances of animal origin. The remainder of the daily requirement - 25 g - accounted for vegetable oils. The energy value of 1g of any fat is 9 kcal.

The physiological significance of fats lies in their need for the vital activity of cells in the body. They are sources of energy and water, serve as a medium for fat-soluble vitamins (A, D), included in their composition, and other products.

The main problem of diabetics who are not on replacement therapy is the fight against obesity. For adipose tissue, higher doses of glucose-lowering agents are required. A vicious circle arises: excessive secretion of insulin leads to an even greater formation of fatty tissues. And the patient is increasingly in need of increasing the dose, gradually becoming completely dependent on hormone intake. In this case, diet and exercise are more effective. With their help, you can quickly reduce the amount of fat.

The main part of therapy for patients with type 2 diabetes is a therapeutic diet. Recommendations that completely exclude fatty foods for a long time are of little use. The difficulty of diet therapy for obese people often lies in overeating. The bottom line is how much food they should eat.

Naturally, there are products from the abuse of which it is easier and faster to recover. But the body does not ignore the calories from the excess fruit. If you exclude from the diet of a diabetic completely fatty foods, the feeling of satiety will come more slowly. A patient at this time can eat a lot of food.

Remembering the threat of cholesterol for blood vessels circulating in the blood, you should not be carried away with butter for type 2 diabetes. Instead of animal fat, vegetable oils should be included in their diet, not more than 40 g. An amount of 10–15 g is considered the daily norm of a creamy product. Good cholesterol values ​​are 3.3–5.2 mmol / l, permissible or borderline - not more than 6.4 mmol / l.

Among animal products, butter and liver are in tenth place in terms of cholesterol content (0.2 g) in terms of 100 g. This is after egg yolk (1.5 g), fatty cheeses (up to 1 g) and other nutritional components of food. . For a diabetic, normal cholesterol per day should be no higher than 0.4 g.

Deciphering the category of oil and its differences from the spread

Butter made from raw and whole milk is more beneficial than pasteurized, heat-treated, skimmed.

To taste there are the following types of creamy product:

Cookies for type 2 diabetics
  • sweet cream;
  • sour creamy;
  • unsalted and salted;
  • oil with fillers;
  • Vologda;
  • amateur

Unscrupulous manufacturers sometimes try to pass a plant spread for a quality product.

According to the advice of experts, consumers should know 5 signs of the best oil:

  • on the cut, it should be shiny and dry;
  • in the cold - hard;
  • uniform color and texture;
  • milk smell is present.
Unlike the creamy product, the spread on the cut is wet, crumbles. Its color is matte, the hue of the oil depends on the milk yield. Summer, when the cow eats fresh grass, yellow, in the winter - white. In the fridge, the spread is soft. It has no or completely odor, depending on the flavor in the composition. The presence of lumps (soft or hard places) indicates a low quality product.

A variety of butter is divided into categories. Decryption is given as a percentage of the fat in it:

  • Traditional - not less than 82.5%;
  • Amateur - 80%;
  • Peasant - 72.5%;
  • Sandwich-bar - 61.5%;
  • Tea - 50%.

In the last types of oils add food stabilizers, preservatives, flavors and emulsifiers. The diabetic is faced with the question: how to make a healthy choice?
