Peanut Butter Keeps Your Blood Sugar Stable
Natural peanut butter is a low glycemic food, and it’s quite filling. Registered dietitian Erin Spitzberg recommends peanut butter because it “will slow digestion and keep you full a little longer.” The gradual digestion will also prevent blood sugar spikes later in the morning.
During a pilot study in 2018, adults who ate two tablespoons of peanut butter with white bread and apple juice experienced a less extreme blood sugar spike. However, Spitzberg recommends spreading peanut butter over your favorite whole grain toast or oatmeal.
