Also a healthy diet for diabetics (as well as those without diabetics) minimizes refined sugars such as white sugar, baked goods/products with refined sugars. However complex carbohydrates such as those found in some fruits, whole grains and vegetables are a part of a diabetic diet. Best to review this with a registered dietician RD.
