Unravelling the Connection Between Sandwiches, Tea with Milk and Sugar, and Glucose Metabolism

The combination of a sandwich and tea with milk and sugar can negatively impact glucose metabolism. The refined carbohydrates in the bread and the added sugar in the tea can cause rapid spikes in blood sugar levels. Additionally, the fat in the milk may further slow down glucose metabolism, leading to prolonged periods of high blood sugar.

Optimising Sandwiches And Tea Consumption For Glucose Control
• Try not to pair sandwiches with tea. Keep a gap of two hours for better glycemic load distribution.
• Consider changing the bread base to almond flour or lupin flour for a lower-carb and higher-fibre option.
• Add some vegetables to the bread or have them on the side for additional fibre and a protein source.
• Keep portion sizes in mind to avoid overconsumption of carbohydrates and calories, which can negatively impact glucose metabolism.
• Try to add natural sweeteners instead of sugar.

This combination of sandwiches and tea can rapidly increase blood glucose levels due to the combination of carbohydrates and free sugars. This can further can cause the body to secrete more insulin, resulting in a subsequent drop in blood sugar levels. Consistently consuming high-carbohydrate and high-sugar meals like this may contribute to insulin resistance.
