Pirámide de alimentos para la diabetes

Toggle: English / Spanish

La pirámide de alimentos para la diabetes divide los alimentos en 6 grupos, los cuales varían en tamaño con el fin de mostrar cantidades de porciones relativas para cada grupo.

Esta pirámide se diferencia de la pirámide de los grupos básicos de alimentos emitida por el Departamento de Agricultura de los Estados Unidos (USDA, por sus siglas en inglés) en que los grupos están basados en el contenido de proteína y carbohidratos en lugar de la clasificación de los alimentos.
