FACT!!!  Did you know that Georgia Grinders premium nut butters can help reduce the glycemic load of a meal?  Well, due to several factors related to its composition and the way nuts interact with the body, here are reasons why you need to put "clothes on your carbs.

High Fat Content: Nut butters are rich in healthy fats, particularly monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. These fats slow down the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates, leading to a more gradual rise in blood glucose levels

Protein Content: Nut butters contain a significant amount of protein. Protein also slows down the digestion process, contributing to a more stable blood sugar response

Low Glycemic Index (GI): Nut butters have a low glycemic index. When combined with higher GI foods, they can help moderate the overall glycemic response of the meal.

Fiber Content: Although nut butters are not extremely high in fiber, they do contain some dietary fiber, which can also help slow the absorption of sugars and improve blood sugar control.

Nutrient Density: The presence of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in nut butters can play a role in improving overall metabolic health, which may contribute to better glycemic control over time.
