Eating Almonds Before Meals May Improve Blood Sugar: Study

New Delhi: New studies say that snacking on almonds before meals could improve blood sugar control in people with prediabetes.

Snacking on almonds before meals improved blood sugar control in overweight and obese people with prediabetes, according to two new studies.

The first study conducted over three days was published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition and the second carried over three months appears in the journal Clinical Nutrition ESPEN.

The researchers found that three-month almond intervention reversed prediabetes, or glucose intolerance, to normal blood sugar levels in nearly one quarter (23.3 per cent) of the people studied.

In both the studies, 60 people ate 20 grammes of almonds, around a small handful, 30 minutes before breakfast, lunch, and dinner throughout the study durations.

They found better glucose control over time through dietary strategies like including almonds could help stave off diabetes progression, the researchers said.
