The high starch content of French fries results in the quick absorption of glucose by the blood and may lead to hyperglycemia. French fries are deep-fried in hydrogenated oils, which is not ideal for metabolic health. Studies suggest that increasing the consumption of potatoes through food items like French fries can lead to adiposity, weight gain, and diabetes risk. This is because potatoes are carbohydrates of a high glycemic form.

Stabilising your glucose levels while eating french fries

• Try to portion-control French fries. Consuming up to 30 gm is ideal to maintain blood sugar levels.

• Consider pairing French fries with 100 gm of solid cooked protein like paneer or chicken breasts. This can be a better way to consume this starchy item because eating protein with carbohydrates slows digestion and keeps blood sugar levels steady.

French fries are common snacks. But they can cause blood sugar spikes after consumption. Therefore, it is important to have small portions of it. Pair it with healthy solid proteins and enjoy it while keeping your blood sugar levels in check.
