Written by Team Ultrahuman

Consuming frozen yoghurt can cause a hyperglycemic effect due to its high sugar content, leading to a spike in blood glucose levels. This can impact glucose metabolism by increasing insulin secretion and potentially causing insulin resistance. Therefore, individuals with diabetes or who want to control their sugar levels should optimise their intake of frozen yoghurt. Choosing plain or low-sugar yoghurt can be a good option.

Choosing the Right Type of Frozen Yoghurt
• Try Greek yoghurt as an alternative with natural sweeteners like stevia or fresh fruit to reduce added sugars.
• Consider pairing frozen yoghurt with high-fibre vegetables or fruits like blueberries and nuts.
• Consider adding yoghurt into protein smoothies with ingredients like whey protein, bananas, and nuts for a delicious and nutritious meal.
• Choose yoghurt with lower lactose content, or try fermented yoghurt for easier digestion and lower sugar content.
• Frozen yoghurt made with low-fat milk can be a healthier alternative to ice creams. It is rich in calcium and good for bone health. The high potassium content helps to regulate blood pressure. It can help reduce cholesterol. Enjoy in moderation for a refreshing summer treat!
