A Vada Pav Indulgence: The Glucose Accepted Way!

Vada pav is a popular Indian snack. It consists of a deep-fried potato fritter served inside a bread roll. Eating vada pav can result in a spike in blood glucose levels. This is because it is a carb-heavy meal. Also, it has a lot of calories.

How to enjoy vada pav without causing glucose spikes
• Try to consume it in moderation.
• Consider consuming Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) beforehand. It aids in digestion.
• You can try using multigrain or sourdough bread instead of pav.
• Consider making it at home and adding a bowl of vegetable salad to the meal.
• You can also pair it with buttermilk. This helps with satiety and can also improve glucose response.

Vada pav contains deep-fried potatoes, which are rich in starch. The potatoes are usually sandwiched between pavs, which contain refined carbs. When eaten together, they can cause rapid glucose absorption and result in blood sugar fluctuations. Try to balance your meal with healthy sources of protein and fibre.
