Suggestion for a snack suited for people with and without diabetes

On the pictures you see (right) the packaging of the brand, and (left) the chicken peas next to a tea spoon. An Indian friend of my mother introduced her this snack last week. My mother has diabetes and this snack is supposedly suitable for people with diabetes. Plus, it is supposed to better your condition. If you have diabetes of course consult your doctor before consuming it. But, carefull – like with any other good snack you can get addicted to this… 🙂
