From Carb Overload to Control: Enjoying Poori Bread Without Spiking Blood Sugar

Fried Whole Wheat Puri or Poori bread is a traditional Indian bread made from whole wheat flour and deep-fried in oil. Due to its high carbohydrate content, it can affect glucose metabolism and potentially cause blood sugar spikes. It is therefore recommended to consume poori in moderation and pair it with protein- and fiber-rich foods to slow down the absorption of carbohydrates and improve glucose control.

Optimizing Fried Whole Wheat Puri Consumption for Better Glucose Control
• Pairing the puri with fiber-rich vegetables, protein-rich lentils, and healthy fats like avocado helps slow down the release of glucose and improve the overall glucose response.
• Portion control is also recommended to minimize the risk of blood sugar spikes.
• Replacing simple carbs with complex carbohydrates slows down the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.

Whole Wheat Puri or Poori bread is a rich source of carbohydrates; therefore, it is quickly broken down into glucose and causes a rapid increase in blood glucose levels upon consumption. Pairing the puri with protein- and fiber-rich foods helps to slow down the carbohydrate breakdown, leading to better glucose control.
