Decoding the Sweet Connection: Keto Cheesecake’s Impact on Glucose Metabolism

Keto Cheesecake is a popular dessert option for those following a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet. However, its impact on glucose metabolism, the process by which the body converts glucose into energy, has been debated. Some studies suggest that consuming Keto Cheesecake may positively affect glucose metabolism.

Optimising Keto Cheesecake for Glucose Metabolism
• Try using almond or coconut flour instead of regular flour for the crust to reduce carbohydrate content.
• Consider using natural sugar substitutes like stevia, monk fruit or erythritol to sweeten the cheesecake instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners.
• You may add healthy fats like MCT or coconut oil to the cheesecake filling to increase satiety and reduce the glycemic index.
• Try adding fibre-rich ingredients like flaxseed meal or chia seeds to the crust or filling to slow down glucose absorption.
• You may also serve Keto Cheesecake with high-fibre toppings like berries or nuts to further improve glucose metabolism.

The main factor affecting glucose metabolism concerning Keto Cheesecake consumption is the glycemic index (GI) of the ingredients used. A low GI indicates slow glucose release and reduced insulin response. In contrast, a high GI indicates a faster glucose release and an increased insulin response. Using low GI ingredients in Keto Cheesecake can help maintain stable glucose levels and improve metabolic health.
