The Sneaky Snack that Raises Blood Glucose Levels

Soya sticks are a popular snack among people looking for a quick and easy way to satisfy their hunger pangs. However, this seemingly harmless snack can lead to hyperglycemia due to its high content of simple and highly processed carbs.

Ways to Make Soya Sticks Healthier
• Using low-carb flour like almond, chia seed, or flaxseed flour will make the soya sticks healthier. It will add proteins and fibre to the snack, making it healthier.
• Consider Lo! Foods’ low-carb soya stick alternatives. Eating other low-carb snacks like almonds, walnuts, and peanuts, along with the soya sticks, will help to even out the glucose curve.
• Pair your soya sticks with a protein-rich food like hummus, yoghurt, or a boiled egg to slow down the digestion of carbohydrates and minimise blood sugar spikes.

Soybean contains bioactive compounds called isoflavones, which have numerous health benefits. They also help in controlling the release of sugar in the blood. However, they also contain simple carbs which can cause hyperglycemia. Hence, it is best to eat soya sticks in moderation or in combination with foods rich in fats and proteins.
