    My apologies to John Cameron, M.D. if this recipe was misleading. I tried to keep the starch minimized, and the 'sugar' was Stevia.

    Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention, John.

    This recipe isn't safe for diabetics. It contains large amounts of STARCH, a carbohydrate with a large quantity of glucose units joined together by glycosidics. What does this means? large intake of sugar but much harder for the insulin to disolve unlike plain glucose (simple sugar/ aka table sugar) making your blood sugar levels rise and stay risen for a longer time than taking table sugar alone.

    Any starchy food(corn, potatoes etc) is as bad as any overly sweet fruit such as cane etc.

    Please Cheft Elaine fix this information as it can be misleading to diabetics and be very harmful, specialy type 2 diabetics who don't inject insulin and ussualy have no insulin at home because they take extended release tablets that stimulate the pancrease.
