Protein powder can be an effective supplement for fitness enthusiasts and weight watchers. Fruits are healthy but contain high amounts of carbohydrates. For people who are conscious of their sugar levels, combining fruits with protein powder can regulate blood glucose. Protein powder contains protein in a simple form that the body absorbs more easily and slows down the metabolism of fruit resultant carbohydrates.

Making the best of protein powder and fresh fruits
• Different fruits have different sugar levels. Try to choose fruits with a low glycemic index. Combine fruits like berries, cherries, apples, and pears with protein powder for a wholesome meal.
• Try adding nuts, nut milk, or nut butter like peanut butter to your fruit and protein powder meal. Adding fats and protein to carbohydrates reduces the glycemic load.
• Eating fruits in smaller portions is better as consuming large quantities of even low GI fruits can cause sugar spikes.

Fruits are rich in fibre, vitamin C, potassium, folate, and carbohydrates. Protein powder is rich in protein, which is essential for building and repairing body tissues, supporting immunity, and maintaining muscles. When combined, fruits and protein powders can help provide a balanced diet that can support your blood sugar goals.
