Bubble Trouble: The Sweet Side of Bubble Tea and Glucose Metabolism

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Bubble tea is known for its sweetness and unique flavour. However, it is also high in sugar and calories, which can lead to blood sugar spikes and an increased risk of metabolic disorders. Studies have shown that bubble tea consumption can contribute to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance, especially in individuals with pre-existing conditions such as diabetes. Monitoring intake and choosing low-sugar options are essential to maintain healthy glucose metabolism.

Blood Sugar Level Stabilisation while having Bubble Tea
• Choose low-sugar options or make bubble tea using sugar alternatives like stevia or monk fruit.
• Choose fresh fruit toppings instead of sweetened ones.
• Choose tea as the base instead of milk or cream, as this can increase the sugar content.
• Consider adding protein or healthy fats to your meal to help slow down the absorption of sugar.

Bubble tea contains high amounts of added sugar, which can increase blood glucose levels. In addition, the high carbohydrate content of the tapioca pearls in bubble tea can also contribute to elevated glucose levels. Regular consumption of bubble tea can result in insulin resistance, which may increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
