Shelled edamame, or boiled baby green soybeans, can certainly be worked into a diabetic diet. A ½ cup serving contains approximately 95 calories, 4 grams of fiber, 8.4 grams of protein, and 7.7 grams of carbohydrate, according to the USDA National Nutrient Database. Due to its nutritional value, edamame can be a great snack for everyone, including individuals with diabetes, but like most things, should be consumed in moderation. For individual concerns regarding a diabetic diet or carbohydrate counting, please refer to local dietitian. You can find one in your area at www.eatright.org.
