Sugarcane juice can be the best drink for a cooling break in hot summers. It gives you instant energy and eases your digestive system. Sugarcane juice has a high glycemic load due to the presence of sucrose, a simple sugar. This means it builds up sugar in your blood slowly but makes it last for a long time. As a result, it has a considerable impact on blood glucose levels.

Getting the best out of sugarcane juice
• Our body has an elevated level of blood glucose early in the morning. Try avoiding having sugarcane juice on an empty stomach to control blood sugar levels.
• Try to avoid having sugarcane juice frequently to prevent blood glucose surge.
• Apple cider vinegar( ACV) has been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce blood glucose fluctuation. Consider diluting a portion of ACV with water for 5-10 minutes before consuming sugarcane juice.
• Try reducing the portion of juice or taking a brief, 10-minute walk after having it to balance blood glucose.

Sugarcane juice primarily comprises sucrose that breaks down in the body to form glucose and fructose. These simple sugars contribute to a high glycemic load in the body. Thus, it is important to gain its benefits without hampering glucose metabolism.
