Yogurt is a healthy source of protein for people with diabetes and a better breakfast alternative than sweetened cereals, health experts say. But it’s important to pick the right kind of yogurt.

In general, plain Greek yogurt is the best option. The worst choice: Fruit-flavored yogurts could spike your blood sugar, and should be avoided, nutrition experts tell The Express.

Even those that are low-calorie are loaded with sugar, nutritionists say.

“Plain yogurt can be a good option for people with diabetes,” says nutritionist Franziska Spritzler.

“However, fruit-flavored varieties are a very different story. Flavored yogurts are typically made from non-fat or low-fat milk and loaded with carbs and sugar.

“In fact, a one-cup [245-gram] serving of fruit-flavored yogurt may contain 47 grams of sugar, meaning nearly 81 per cent of its calories come from sugar.”
