The Sweet Truth About Tomato Soup: How to Make it Work for Your Health Goals.

Tomato soup is a comfort food favourite, especially during the colder months. However, it may not be the healthiest option for those watching their blood sugar levels or trying to lose weight. This is because when tomatoes are pureed and cooked into a soup, their fibre content breaks down. This makes it easier to digest and potentially causes a spike in blood sugar levels. But fear not! There are ways to optimize your tomato soup recipe to make it work for your health goals.

How To Optimise Tomato Soup
• Choose unstrained soups over pureed ones to retain more fibre.
• Add a source of protein, like tofu, to balance out the meal and slow down digestion.
• Include a variety of other vegetables in your soup to increase its nutrient content.

Tomatoes have a low glycemic index, meaning they don’t cause a rapid increase in blood sugar levels. However, the breakdown of fibre in tomato soup can make it easier for the body to process and absorb the natural sugars in tomatoes. By making the changes mentioned above, you can still enjoy the comfort of tomato soup while keeping your health goals in check.
