Kulfi is a popular frozen dessert that originated in India and is made from milk, sugar, and various flavourings such as cardamom, saffron, or pistachio. While there is no direct association between kulfi and glucose metabolism, the ingredients used to make kulfi can have an impact on glucose metabolism in the body.

Enjoy Kulfi Without Overindulging
• You can also opt for kulfi recipes that use low-fat milk and yoghurt instead of full-fat cream.
• Try making your own kulfi at home with natural ingredients like almond milk and honey for an even healthier option.
• Consider adding a generous helping of chopped nuts and dried fruits to your kulfi for a more nutritious treat.
• You can try incorporating healthy superfoods like mixed nuts, fresh dates or apricots in your kulfi.

Milk, the primary ingredient in kulfi, contains lactose, a type of sugar that can affect blood sugar levels in individuals with lactose intolerance or insulin resistance. Additionally, the sugar used to sweeten kulfi can impact glucose metabolism, as consuming too much sugar can lead to insulin resistance and impaired glucose tolerance.

Therefore, individuals with diabetes or those at risk of developing diabetes should be cautious when consuming kulfi. They may need to limit their intake or choose alternative desserts that are lower in sugar and carbohydrates.
