Adding a special flavouring to your food can completely protect you from diabetes, reveals a new study posted in the journal Diabetes Care.
240 patients on the brink of developing full-blown type 2 diabetes took part in this study and researchers divided them up into two groups.
For nine months, half the participants ate foods with a yellow tinge, while the others ate the same foods without the added flavour.
Researchers took information from each participant after three, six and nine months and took note of all the type 2 diabetes markers.
After nine months, not one of the participants who ate the yellow food had developed diabetes, but almost 17% of those in the other group did!
Researchers concluded that eating the yellow food was a way to 100% guarantee you won't get diabetes as a pre-diabetic.

You know that following a healthy eating plan involves eating fish at least twice a week, right?
But did you know it can increase your risk of type 2 diabetes by a whopping 65% too?
This shocking revelation comes from an Indiana University study led by head epidemiologist, Ka He.
Out of the 3,854 participants involved, experts found the healthiest ones had the highest amounts of mercury in their systems. And this meant they had a soaring diabetes risk too.
They also found is that it's BECAUSE of their efforts to maintain a healthy diet that their risk was so high. You see, they'd been eating lots of healthy, nutrient dense fish in an attempt to keep their weight within normal limits and all other aspects of their health in check.
What they didn't know, however, was they were putting their health at risk every time. Simply because the fish they were eating contained high levels of mercury.
And it's a major problem across the world that's leaving even the healthiest of people with drastically high diabetes risks.
It's the first study to connect mercury exposure to diabetes, so keep reading to find out what it does to put you at risk and, more importantly, how you can maintain your health…... ››› more
