From New York, New York, USA:

If I want to spice up my morning cereal with either some banana or raisins, which would have the least effect on my blood sugar level?


All fruit contains carbohydrate, something that must be limited with regards to blood sugar control. But, either one-half a banana or a miniature box of raisins (one-half ounce box) contains the same amount of carbohydrate: 15 grams. Either can be worked into your meal plan.
