Healthy Twist on a Classic Dessert: Low-Glucose Mysore Pak

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Nov 01, 2022

Mysore Pak is a popular Indian sweet made primarily of chickpea flour, sugar, and ghee (clarified butter). While it is undoubtedly delicious, it can significantly impact blood sugar levels due to its high glucose content. The sugar in Mysore Pak is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, causing a rapid rise in blood glucose levels (hyperglycemia). If your glucose is trending low, it may lead to hypoglycemia due to the fat content from ghee.

Optimising this Sweet Treat
• Try replacing the gram flour with no-carb or low-carb alternatives like almond, coconut, or chickpea flour.
• You may look out for keto Mysore Pak recipes.
• Try replacing table sugar, with alternative sugar options like coconut sugar

Opting for low-sugar or sugar-free versions of Mysore Pak, using healthier sweeteners like jaggery or stevia, and reducing the amount of ghee used in the recipe can help mitigate its impact on blood sugar levels.
