Are you a grape lover but worried about their impact on your blood sugar levels? Grapes, especially red and green European varieties like Thompson Seedless, contain high amounts of fruit sugar, fructose and glucose. But don’t worry! There are simple ways to optimize your grape intake and keep your blood sugar in check.

Ways to Optimize Your Grape Intake for Better Blood Sugar Control
• Low-GI fruits like apples, oranges, or pears can help satisfy sweet cravings.
• Practice portion control when consuming grapes, such as having a small bowl or just a handful.
• Pair grapes with a fat source like nut butter or nuts to reduce sugar absorption and improve GI.
• Pair grapes with a protein shake to lower the GI of a meal.

Grapes are fruit, but their high sugar content can cause high blood sugar, especially in individuals with insulin resistance. Control your grape intake by including low-sugar fruits, exercising portion control, and pairing grapes with fat or protein. This can help reduce glucose changes and keep blood sugar levels stable.
