Strawberry is a source of glucose and fructose; hence, fruit sugar leads to higher glucose levels. The carbohydrates in fruit-flavoured yoghurt can raise blood glucose levels; however, along with the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties of strawberries, strawberry greek yoghurt is also a source of healthy fats and proteins that lead to glucose control.

Optimising Strawberry Greek Yoghurt to Stabilise your Blood Sugar Levels
• Consider eating plain unsweetened greek yoghurt and add some nuts for healthy fats.
• You can consume it with a protein-rich source, such as eggs, paneer or tofu bhurjee, etc., to help manage its effect on blood glucose levels.
• Pair strawberry greek yoghurt with fresh salad to increase the fibre content.
• Follow the food flow: fibre > protein > fats > carbs.
• Portion control the yogurt 50-80 gms per serving

Strawberry greek yoghurt affects blood glucose levels through carbohydrates and fructose, and glucose in strawberries results in higher glucose levels. On the other hand, the vitamins, fibre, and polyphenols in strawberries may positively affect blood glucose levels. However, the impact on glucose levels may vary based on individual factors and the specific nutrient composition of the yoghurt.
