Do beets raise blood sugar?

Hi everyone:

I was wondering if beets raise blood sugar b/c beet root juice is supposed to lower blood pressure. If it's going to raise my sugar, then I don't want it. Thanks.

I'm afraid you will have to try it for yourself and see what happens. How many carbs per serving?

Re: Do beets raise blood sugar?

I understand that beets and carrots are used to raise blood sugar. Some other vegetables that are considered root vegetables that grow under ground will too (such as potatoes). Hope this helps.
