I was just curious if couscous is Ok to have for diabetics? I know that it's pasta so I was not sure. Thanks,

Hi carb content! I tried it back in time , and it raised my blood glucose. I think Clare R is right on the money. Depending on how advanced your diabetes is, you might be able to get away with a small portion. As far as I'm concerned, it's a Hi carb food.

It's made from semolina, which is the same type of wheat used to make spaghetti, so if you know how spaghetti pasta affects you, I would think it would be the same. Do you use carb counting? Check the side of the box for carb content per serving, and how much a serving actually is.
