Low-Sugar, High-Protein: The Benefits of Greek Yogurt for Blood Sugar Control

Greek yoghurt is a better choice for you in comparison with regular yoghurt if you are trying to manage your glucose levels. It has a lower amount of sugar than its counterpart. Yoghurt naturally contains both high-quality carbohydrates and protein, making it an excellent food for slowing or preventing an unhealthy rise in blood sugar. The lactose in yoghurt is digested more efficiently because the bacteria inherent in yoghurt assist with its digestion.

Healthy yoghurt combinations for better glucose management
• Try consuming Greek yoghurt with blueberries & nuts. You can make a frozen version of this without sugar or with plant-based sugar like stevia.
• Try preparing a fruit protein smoothie with frozen yoghurt (Whey protein + yoghurt + banana for taste + nuts).
• Consider adding low-GI fruit like apples, oranges or pears to yoghurt.
• Add a drop of vanilla or almond extract for flavour.

Yoghurt is a nutrient-dense snack. It is healthier to consume it unsweetened. Probiotic bacteria in Greek yoghurt improve gut health and may help manage blood sugar and insulin resistance. Be mindful and check the labels. Choose the one with less than 15 grams of carbohydrates per serving.
