Dry roasted unsalted peanuts are a healthy snack option that is high in protein, fibre, and healthy fats. However, eating them in excess can result in a drop in sugar levels. This is because peanuts have little to no carbs, causing a glucose flatline, which ultimately gives them a low GI score.

How to Optimise dry roasted unsalted peanuts?
• Pair peanuts with 30g of simple carbs like green banana or elaichi banana for a small rise in blood sugar levels. This can keep you in range for a while.
• Practice portion control and limit consumption to a handful or two.
• Combine peanuts with other macros like fruits and vegetables to balance the meal and improve your food score.

Peanuts are a great source of healthy fats that can help stabilise blood sugar levels when consumed in moderation. However, overconsumption of peanuts can result in hypoglycemia, which negatively impacts the food score. Pairing them with simple carbs and practising portion control can help improve the score and prevent hypoglycemia. Additionally, incorporating a variety of macros like fruits and vegetables can balance the meal and improve overall nutrition.
