"According to recent research by a leading diabetes charity, a flavonoid-rich diet, such as yellow, orange and red coloured fruits and vegetables, or rich, leafy greens.
Diabetes UK and the University of East Anglia spent 12 months investigating the link between flavonoids and type 2 diabetes and asked 93 female volunteers to eat flavonoid-enriched chocolate. Half of the women were given a placebo.
Researchers discovered that those who ate the flavonoid-enriched chocolate reduced their risks of a heart attack or disease by up to 3.4%. They also significantly slashed their risks of a strokes, resistance to insulin and cholesterol levels, too"
We have been saying this for a long time !
So what did the placebo group in place of chocolate with Flavonoids? Sugar? Results as I would expect, if they ate carbohydrates.
They would be better off getting rid of the chocolate and eating bright colored vegetables, but that is just opinion.

I agree 100% fresh non starchy veg and low carb berries is the way to control BG. Eat a rainbow of fresh food.
