Curd is made by fermenting milk with bacteria. It is rich in protein and probiotics. It not only helps boost your immune system but also works to absorb nutrients in your system, which support glucose metabolism by improving insulin sensitivity and reducing inflammation.
Curd has a glycemic index of 28 and a glycemic load of 2.8, which means it does not cause an immediate spike in your blood sugar levels.

The Best Ways of Including Curd in your Diet
• If you are lactose intolerant, consider adding lactose-free curd to your diet.
• You may pair curd with high-fibre vegetables to slow down glucose absorption.
• Consider consuming it in the form of vegetable raita.
• Add some nuts to your diet, alongside curd, for a slow release of sugar in your blood.
• Add curd to protein smoothies and have it as a filling and nutritious snack.

Incorporating curd into your diet can be a beneficial strategy for managing glucose levels. Try to pair it with high-fibre vegetables and protein smoothies, and avoid curd products that contain added sugars or are high in fat.
