Paneer has a high protein content. Proteins are observed to have a stabilizing effect on blood sugar levels. The fats found in dairy products like paneer, do not increase blood sugar as compared to carbohydrates. Paneer contains about 3 grams of sugar per 100 grams of serving. This makes it a good protein-rich food choice for those watching their sugar intake.

Fun Ways to Boost Your Paneer Intake
• Consider pairing paneer with a source of complex carbs to make it a whole meal and get a better glucose response.
• Try grilling the paneer in olive oil. This will increase the nutrient value of the paneer when paired with healthy fat.
• Combine paneer with green leafy vegetables like spinach and make palak paneer. This can increase the body’s mineral intake.

Proteins in Paneer are slow to break down and convert into energy for the body to use. This might cause the levels to drop. The protein is broken down into amino acids in the body. These amino acids help in the production of glucose from non-carbohydrate sources through a process called gluconeogenesis.
