Vegan protein is made from plant-based sources and can be an alternative to whey. However, due to its plant-based nature, it can cause a glucose spike in some people. Nevertheless, it is considered an effective way of managing blood sugar. This is because it is high in fibre and low in saturated fat, thus leading to decreased insulin resistance and better glycemic control. Having said that, a few might experience glucose spikes due to the natural plant-based nature. There is no doubt that vegan protein affects everyone differently.

Tips for incorporating Vegan Protein to manage your blood sugar
• You may make a smoothie out of it by using Greek yogurt and mixed nuts.
• Consider pairing it with a handful of nuts, such as almonds and walnuts.
• Instead of consuming multiple scoops at a time, you can break them down into separate meals throughout the day.
• You may add chia seeds and nut butter to help reduce the glucose spikes.

One definite thing to remember is that to maintain your glucose levels, you have to use a balanced mixture of low-carb proteins with comparatively smaller portions of higher-carb proteins. Moreover, avoid vegan protein products that contain added sweeteners and artificial flavours as these can lead to sugar spikes.
