Sour Surprise: Understanding Limca’s Role in Spiking Your Glucose Levels

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Limca, a popular carbonated soft drink, contains many free sugars like high fructose corn syrup, sucrose, and/or glucose. These sugars can cause your glucose levels to spike rapidly, leading to hyperglycemia. This is because when you consume too much sugar at once, your body may not be able to produce enough insulin to keep up with the rapid influx of sugar.

Tips to optimise the consumption of fizzy drinks
• Try to avoid sweetened soft drinks like Limca, as they can raise your blood sugar levels.
• You may opt for plain soda with lemon and salt instead of sugary soft drinks, as this refreshing drink contains lesser calories and sugar.
• Try to limit your soft drink consumption in general and have water or unsweetened drinks instead.

Limca contains many free sugars, which can spike your glucose levels and increase the risk of health issues like insulin resistance. A 300ml serving of Limca contains approximately 38g of carbohydrates, of which 36g are free sugars. By reducing your consumption of sugary soft drinks and opting for healthier alternatives, you can promote better glucose metabolism.
