Lahya and milk are traditional food items. Lahya is popped rice that is often consumed with milk and sugar. Although milk has a low glycemic index, rice, rice products, and sugar are strict no-nos to maintain stable glucose levels. All these ingredients together raise the meal’s glycemic index to a medium-high level. It can cause super spikes and crashes in blood glucose levels.

Optimizing lahya and milk intake for stable blood glucose levels
• You can pair lahya with food with good sources of protein. You can combine it with paneer, chicken, fish, or khichdi. It will control the sudden spike in blood sugar.
• Try consuming lahya without milk and sugar. It will considerably bring down the glycemic index of your meal.

Lahya and milk can be a very fulfilling meal. Although milk is considered a balanced diet, its carbs break and convert to sugar in the blood. That makes too much milk consumption harmful. Add to it the lahya, which can cause a sudden and high spike and crash in your glucose levels. However, consuming it in moderation will not spike your glucose.
