Which foods can people with diabetes eat to get more chromium?

Emilia Klapp
Nutrition & Dietetics
There are small amounts of chromium in most foods. However, dark chocolate (made with a high proportion of cocoa) is rich in chromium, carrying roughly 10 times the amount of the chromium in whole grains. Whole-grain products still are excellent sources of chromium, as are:
  • Beef and calves’ liver
  • Chicken and eggs
  • Fish and seafood
  • Dairy products
  • Walnuts
  • Lettuce, broccoli, onions, and apples
  • Potatoes with skin
  • Brewer’s yeast
