There’s nothing quite like popping open a bottle of champagne to celebrate a special occasion. But this festive beverage can be challenging for those trying to watch their blood sugar levels. Champagne is made from fermented grapes, which means it contains natural sugars in the form of glucose and fructose. This can cause a spike in blood sugar levels, leading to hyperglycemia. So, what can you do to enjoy champagne without harming your health?

Optimise Drinking Champagne
• Eat a protein-rich meal before drinking champagne, such as grilled chicken and salad.
• Include fibre in your meal to slow the absorption of the sugars in champagne.
• Add healthy fats to your meal, such as olives and cheese, to stabilise your blood sugar levels.
• Consider drinking water between glasses of champagne to stay hydrated and help your body process the alcohol more efficiently.

Champagne is a beloved beverage for many people, but it’s important to understand how it can affect your health, especially if you manage your blood sugar levels. You can enjoy champagne without sabotaging your health goals by tweaking your diet and drinking habits. Remember, moderation is the key, and consult your healthcare provider if you have any concerns about your blood sugar levels or alcohol consumption.
