Fulfilling your Red Poha Cravings without Getting Sugar Spikes

Red Poha is rich in minerals and antioxidants. It also has a high fibre content, which may promote digestion and help control insulin levels. However, because the thin, flattened rice flake also has a sizable amount of carbs, it could threaten high blood sugar and cause a glucose crash when eaten in excess.

How to bank on the health benefits of red Poha without compromising your diet: A quick guide
• Consider practising portion control. You can start with 50 grams of red Poha and check your response.
• You may add lean protein like eggs to your Poha, just like in this recipe. It will balance your meal and make you feel fuller for longer.
• Try to eat Poha with a protein shake on the side; it will change the glycaemic index of the meal, which will lower the chances of a sugar spike.

The superfood red poha contains anthocyanin — a flavonoid that gives it its red colour and anti-inflammatory properties. It also gives you satiety, helping you feel fuller for longer. However, it is still made with rice, so it could cause a spike in blood sugar if it’s not eaten in moderation.
