Get Your Fill with Chicken Sandwich without worrying about Glucose Levels

Chicken sandwiches consist of two pieces of toasted bread, typically white, with a filling of chicken, lettuce, and mayonnaise. This bread consists of refined flour, which breaks down quickly during digestion and can cause sudden surges in blood sugar. Making subtle swaps while preparing the sandwich can be healthier in the long run.

Improve your Chicken Sandwich
• Instead of making the sandwich with the usual white bread, try sourdough, multigrain, or whole-wheat bread. These have a lower glycemic index and do not cause an immediate rise in blood sugar levels.
• Try portion control by limiting your sandwich meal to 1 slice of bread instead of 2 pieces.
• You may also increase the protein content and add some veggies to the sandwich. This reduces the glucose load of the overall meal.
• Avoid adding too much mayonnaise or ketchup, which can increase the sugar content and the level of trans fats in the meal.

White bread consists of refined carbs, which break down easily in the body. This can cause a sudden rise in blood sugar. White bread has the highest glycemic index of 70. This means that the consumption of white bread raises blood sugar most quickly. Those at risk for spikes in blood sugar are recommended not to consume white bread regularly.
