While nearly all beans have a low glycemic load ranking and will not raise your blood sugar, the fiber in beans will also help lower and stabilize your blood sugar if you eat other higher glycemic index foods. The fiber, specifically the soluble fiber, prevents glucose from other foods and beverages from digesting in your body as quickly.
If you have insulin resistance, hypoglycemia, or diabetes, adding beans into your regular diet can be very helpful. The reason for this is that the soluble fiber in beans provides a slow burning and long lasting source of energy, consisting of complex carbohydrates and proteins for your body to use.
