Drink Up and Stay Balanced: Raggi Malt for a Low-Glycemic Energy Boost

Ragi malt is a popular beverage known for its health benefits, including its ability to regulate blood sugar levels. It’s important to keep in mind that ragi malt preparations contain milk and jaggery, both of which can significantly increase the carbohydrate content. This results in the addition of sucrose and lactose, leading to a rapid increase in blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). Ragi is in itself a high glycemic carbohydrate contributing to surges in blood glucose. Let’s see how to optimise it!

Healthy hacks to optimise your ragi malt intake
• You may use water instead of milk to reduce calories and fat content.
• Try to reduce the amount of jaggery or replace it with stevia for a lower glycemic load.
• Consider adding soaked almonds and walnuts for healthy fats and a boost of flavour.
• Portion control for the ragi as it is a millet with a high glycemic index

Ragi, the key ingredient in ragi malt, is a grain with a moderate glycemic index (GI) packed with fibre, calcium and other essential nutrients. Consuming ragi malt can help regulate blood sugar levels as long as the other components (milk and jaggery) are optimised. Additionally, the high fibre content in ragi can aid digestion, promote satiety, and support weight management. Incorporating ragi malt into your diet can provide numerous health benefits while satisfying your taste buds.
