Almonds and cashews are both micronutrient-dense foods that are a rich source of good fats – monounsaturated fatty acids, protein, and fibre and are comparatively lower in carbs. Therefore they help with satiety and help improve glucose response. Additionally, almonds and cashews have a low glycemic index, meaning they do not cause a rapid blood sugar level drop after consumption.

Optimising Almonds and Cashews for Balanced Blood Sugar
• Try pairing almonds and cashews with a small serving of 30g of carbs if you experience low glucose levels.
• Consider consuming unsalted nuts to avoid water retention and bloating.
• Avoid nuts with added coatings or flavours.
• It’s best to exercise portion control when you consume nuts, as they can be high in calories.

Additionally, the high fibre content of almonds and cashews can slow down the absorption of carbohydrates in the gut, leading to a more gradual increase in blood sugar levels. Overall, including almonds and cashews in a balanced diet may positively impact glucose metabolism.
