Uncorking the Truth: Low Sugar Wines for Diabetics

Uncorking the Truth: Low Sugar Wines for Diabetics

Living with diabetes doesn't mean you have to give up all of life's pleasures, including a glass of wine. While it's essential to manage your sugar intake carefully, you can still indulge in a glass of sparkling wine without worrying about your blood sugar levels skyrocketing.

We were delighted to find out that SYLTBAR is considered to be approved for diabetics after careful medical research was done by the University of Miami Diabetes Research Institute. Not only did these researchers find that SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco and Sparkling Rosé are significantly lower in sugar/glucose levels than other well-known sparkling brands, but their studies showed that patients with diabetes did not experience a spike in their blood sugar levels when drinking SYLTBAR. Instead, their blood sugar stayed stable.

The sugar content in Mr and Mrs is less than half a gram of sugar per 6 ounce serving. While of course moderation is key, SYLTBAR is clearly the best option when it comes to wines for diabetics.

Understanding Sugar in Wine

Let's first understand the sugar content in wine. The sugar in wine primarily comes from the grapes used in its production. When grapes ferment, their natural sugars are converted into alcohol by yeast. However, some residual sugar may remain, making the wine sweeter.

Dry vs. Sweet Wines: When looking for low sugar wines, it's crucial to distinguish between dry and sweet wines. Dry wines contain minimal residual sugar, making them a better choice for diabetics. SYLTBAR wines go through a double fermentation process that takes up to four months. The extra time allows the grapes to fully develop their flavors, and that is why there is such minimal residual sugar left in the end product. The majority of mass-produced brands skip this process to save time and money. Instead, they add extra sugars to make the wine taste good.

Check the Label: Always check the label for information on residual sugar. A wine labeled as "dry" typically contains less than 10 grams of sugar per liter, while "off-dry" or "semi-sweet" wines can contain significantly more. Opt for wines labeled "brut" for sparkling wines and "dry" for still wines.

Tips for Healthier Wine Enjoyment

Avoid using cocktail mixers that have high amounts of calories and sugar. Adding these to SYLTBAR’s low calorie and low sugar wines defeats the purpose of sticking to diabetes-friendly wine. You should also make sure to monitor your blood sugar. By testing your blood sugar before and after enjoying wine, you may understand its impact on your body a bit more and know how you react. This can help you know how many glasses of wine your body can handle at a time. One of the most important things to remember is to always make sure to drink enough water throughout the day so you are adequately hydrated.

With careful consideration and moderation, individuals with diabetes can continue to enjoy wine without jeopardizing their health. Low sugar wines that we offer here at SYLTBAR offer delicious options to explore, including our Premium Prosecco, Sparkling Rose, White Linen Pinot Grigio, Silk Friulano, Cashmere Cabernet Franc and Junior Pinot Grigio Ramato...

Remember, a well-informed choice can make all the difference in maintaining a balanced and enjoyable lifestyle. Cheers to your health and happiness!
