Wine contains sugar (sucrose, fructose and glucose), a result of the fermentation process of grapes. Chardonnay is a dry white wine made from green-skinned grapes. A 5-ounce serving of this wine can contain up to 1-3 gms of sugar. The sugar in the wine can cause a spike in blood sugar levels.

Ways of getting a sweet buzz without affecting blood sugar levels
• Before drinking wine, try eating a meal rich in protein and fibre, such as grilled chicken or turkey with salad. This can help stabilise your blood sugar levels.
• Eating healthy fats like cheese, olives, or nuts can help prevent blood sugar spikes.

Drinking a small amount of wine will not affect blood sugar levels significantly. However, it is advisable to stick to low-sugar and low-calorie red and white wines. Drinking wine with a healthy diet is also recommended, but only when your blood sugar levels are controlled.
