Say Yes to Yoghurt: How eating plain yoghurt stabilises blood sugar

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Plain yoghurt helps improve glucose metabolism. It contains high-quality fats and proteins that slow down the absorption of glucose in the body. This helps control blood sugar spikes. Plain yoghurt’s high-protein and low-sugar composition reduces hunger pangs. This is helpful if you are trying to lose weight. 

Yoghurt for better glucose control
• Opt for plain yoghurt with no added sugar or flavours.
• Try a combination of yoghurt with low GI fruits like apples, oranges or pear.
• Greek yoghurt with blueberries and nuts is an excellent combination that is high in protein and low in carbohydrates.
• Try making a healthy fruit smoothie with yoghurt. You can mix yoghurt with whey protein, banana and nuts.
• Consume plain yoghurt with a meal rather than as a snack.

Plain yoghurt improves glucose metabolism because of its probiotic nature. Probiotics improve insulin sensitivity and decrease insulin resistance. The lactose in the yoghurt is digested easily because of the presence of bacteria. This makes yoghurt especially suitable for those with lactose intolerance.
