A couple of months ago, I used my non-prescription CGM from Levels to see how plain popcorn would affect my blood sugar level. The result was very poor. It shot my blood sugar straight up and just as quickly dropped the level to a point lower than my starting point.
Sharing this result spurred a lot of questions about buttered popcorn. Since butter is pure fat, (which is a nutrient that does not spike blood sugar), would adding butter to the popcorn make it a better snack for blood sugar control? Well, I ran the test. It should be better, right? It was not what I expected. Here are the results.
