Chakli, a popular Indian snack, has no direct effect on blood sugar levels. However, the constituents of this dish, such as chickpea or rice flour, do affect your glucose metabolism. A research study indicated that people with diabetes who consumed chickpea flour had a lower glycemic index. Rice flour consumption also lowers postprandial glucose and insulin levels, according to another research published by NIH.

Munch on Chakli While Managing Your Blood Sugar Level: Here’s How
• Try to control portion sizes and stick to a small serving of chakli to avoid spikes in blood sugar levels.
• You could pair chakli with protein-rich foods like nuts, seeds, or greek yoghurt. This will help slow down the absorption of glucose and prevent sudden blood sugar spikes.
• Consider choosing chakli made from high-fibre and whole grain flours like ragi or millet to keep your blood sugar levels in check.

Chakli is a high-carbohydrate snack that can rapidly increase blood sugar levels, especially when consumed in large quantities. However, choosing chakli made from high-fibre flour and pairing it with protein-rich foods can help regulate glucose metabolism and prevent sudden spikes in blood sugar levels.
