What is Raw Sugarcane Water (also known as Sugarcane Juice)?
Raw sugarcane water (also known as sugarcane juice) is the naturally sweet and nutrient-rich water cold pressed from sugarcane (a type of grass). It is a beverage that has been long enjoyed in several cultures worldwide. Raw sugarcane water is considered as a powerful medicinal beverage in Ayurveda, a 5,000 year old system of natural healing with roots in India. It is a natural energy drink with anti-oxidants, electrolytes and complex carbohydrates which has less impact on blood sugar levels.
Will Raw Sugarcane Juice cause my blood sugar levels to spike?
The sweetness in raw sugarcane juice is from a natural source and is not processed in any way. It is high in soluble fiber and complex carbohydrates. Due to the complex carbohydrates and fiber, the sweetness in raw sugarcane juice is digested slowly in the body and provides energy to working muscles. Energy is required to fuel body processes (metabolism) and physical activity. As complex carbohydrates are released into the bloodstream at a slower rate than simple carbohydrates, they have less impact on sugar levels in your bloodstream.
