I had originally joined in 2012on account we thought my mom was a type 2 diabetic. Turned out later that she's wasn't. Which is great,seeing how she had other health issues.then i got into home canning.in which i figure those foods are better for both of us.mainly her.i don't add salt or sugar to what foods i can when ever possible. Seeing how everyone has their preferences when it comes to salt.suger and pepper. Now she has passed away August of 2017.but yet im still into home canning.seeing how it don't have the preservatives and all that store bought foods have.I've learned that,there's 2 people that are diabetics..because that.im wondering if home canning is diabetic friendly. And if so.how friendly is it?

The biggest issue I find with canned or frozen *anything* is what it does to the fiber (i.e., it destroys it, regardless of what your RD or CDE tells you). The other issues are that the heat and pressure required in pressure canning can destroy micronutrients, as can the acidity of boiling-water (water bath) canning
