Best Wines for Managing Blood Sugar Levels
Choosing wine that is lower in sugar can be a good option for those with diabetes, as it can help to minimize the impact on blood sugar levels. When searching for wine that may be more diabetic friendly than others, pay close attention to sugar and carbohydrate levels.
Dryer varieties will be your best bet. In the Prosecco and Champagne categories, that means always opting for those that say “Brut” on the label. This means that the Prosecco has 0-12 g/L of residual sugar. Residual sugar is not added sugar; it is the sugar left over from the grapes during the fermentation process. We always advise staying away from mass-produced Prosecco, Champagne and other sparkling wine brands that typically add sweeteners to their product as a way to cut production time and costs. This is especially important for people with diabetes.
Luckily, if you are already a fan of SYLTBAR Prosecco and Sparkling Rosé, you’re in the clear. Our wines have absolutely no added sweeteners or chemicals. This is due to the double fermentation process that our winemakers use during production that allows the grapes to fully develop. SYLTBAR wines are pure; nothing added and nothing removed.
Mr SYLTBAR Premium Prosecco and Mrs SYLTBAR Sparkling Rosé have both been lab-tested by the University of Miami Diabetes Research Institute, proven to have the lowest sugar content when compared to other well known sparkling wine brands.
There has also been feedback from patients with diabetes who consumed SYLTBAR and reported back that they had stable glucose levels. This feedback comes from a Live Patient Diabetes Study that observed diabetic patients while they were drinking a 6 oz glass of Mr SYLTBAR, to see how their blood sugar would react. The results showed that there was no sugar spike after consuming SYLTBAR. Even more interesting was that after time had gone on, blood sugar levels decreased. This was an incredible result and shows that SYLTBAR is so low in sugar that it does not have any effect on blood sugar level.
