Paneer-tastic! The Role of Fresh Cheese in Regulating Glucose Metabolism

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Fresh paneer, a type of Indian cheese made from milk, is shown to have a positive association with glucose metabolism. Studies have found that the consumption of fresh paneer may improve insulin sensitivity, reduce blood glucose levels and lower the risk of type 2 diabetes.

How To Consume Paneer And Be Satiated For Longer
• Try pairing paneer with a source of complex carbs to make it a whole meal and for a better glucose response.
• You can limit portion sizes to manage calorie intake and prevent overconsumption of saturated fat.
• Choose fresh paneer over processed or packaged varieties to ensure a higher protein content and better nutritional value.
• Do not add sugar or high glycemic index ingredients to paneer dishes. This includes honey, maple syrup or refined flour.

Fresh paneer consumption has been associated with improved glucose metabolism due to its high protein and low carbohydrate content. Proteins take longer to break down and convert into glucose, which results in a slower release of glucose into the bloodstream, preventing sudden spikes in blood sugar levels. Additionally, paneer contains beneficial amino acids that may improve insulin sensitivity, further improving glucose control.
