Cabbage is low in sugars, as most of the carbohydrate content of a cabbage consists of dietary fiber. Because of this, the consumption of enough cabbage to calculate its glycemic index is exceedingly difficult.

Official sources have not yet calculated an exact number for the glycemic index of cabbages. However, it is assumed to be low.

It is known that cabbages can have beneficial, antidiabetic properties.

Cabbage consumption has been explored for glucose-lowering and insulin-sensitizing potential and suggested as an adjuvant to oral hypoglycemic drugs (1).

Animal testing has found that red cabbage improves the liver and kidney functions of diabetic rats and, therefore, has the potential to alleviate diabetes mellitus in humans (2).

Health checks

Low in Cholesterol
ok
 ⓘ Dietary cholesterol is not associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease in healthy individuals. However, dietary cholesterol is common in foods that are high in harmful saturated fats.
Source
No Trans Fats
ok
 ⓘ Trans fat consumption increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality by negatively affecting blood lipid levels.
Source
Low in Saturated Fats
ok
 ⓘ Saturated fat intake can raise total cholesterol and LDL (low-density lipoprotein) levels, leading to an increased risk of atherosclerosis. Dietary guidelines recommend limiting saturated fats to under 10% of calories a day.
Source
Low in Sodium
ok
 ⓘ Increased sodium consumption leads to elevated blood pressure.
Source
Low in Sugars
ok
 ⓘ While the consumption of moderate amounts of added sugars is not detrimental to health, an excessive intake can increase the risk of obesity, and therefore, diabetes.
