Considered a great breakfast option, most commercial muesli brands add rice, corn grits, sugar, candied berries, and fruits to make it tasty. The fibre in muesli helps delay the rate of sugar absorption in the bloodstream and helps prevent blood sugar spikes. Although the cereal is fibre-rich, it is high in simple carbs and added sugar, causing spikes in blood sugar.

Crunchy ways to enjoy muesli without impacting blood sugar
• Try choosing sugar-free muesli that does not have added sugar.
• Check the product label for the carbohydrate content in the muesli and purchase a low-carb option.
• Try to choose muesli that does not contain candied fruits and berries to avoid excess sugar. Instead, choose a variety having nuts and seeds.
• Try having muesli with low-carb milk like almond or soy milk, as this can help reduce blood sugar spikes.

Muesli is a great breakfast option for those with diabetes, especially if it contains whole grains. Muesli with nuts like walnuts and almonds can add protein and healthy fats that help regulate blood sugar levels. It also reduces the risk of heart disease.
