Chow Mein Noodles is a traditional Chinese dish that has also become a tradition in India. However, it isn’t a healthy dish as it increases blood sugar levels. Chow mein noodles’ main ingredient is refined flour maida, that’s packed with carbohydrates.

Optimise the chow mein noodles to be healthy
• Consider replacing processed white carbs maida noodles with millet noodles. Millet is nutritionally superior to other grains and also has a low GI.
• Try increasing the vegetable content in your dish. Most veggies have a low GI. So they help control blood sugar levels.
• Try including a side of a protein-rich dish with the chow mein noodles meal. It will help control portions. Protein also slows down the carb breakdown in the body.

Maida used to prepare Chow Mein Noodles has high carbohydrate levels. The GI of maida is 71, which is also high. However, try these tips to make your noodles healthier without spiking your glucose levels.
