Looking for a healthy snack option that is both tasty and nutritious? Look no further than brown rice cakes. Brown rice cakes have gained popularity as a low-calorie, gluten-free snack for health enthusiasts. However, there is more to consider regarding their nutritional value. Brown rice is generally considered a healthier option than white rice. However, it can still be high in carbohydrates and impact blood sugar levels.

How To Optimise Brown Rice Cakes
• Include some vegetables for fibre.
• Add a source of protein to make it a complete meal.
• Make sure rice is only 25% of the meal.
• Add ghee/grass-fed butter/olive oil or a handful of nuts for improved glucose response.

Brown rice is generally higher in fibre than white rice, which makes it a better choice for glucose control. However, it’s still high in carbohydrates and can increase glucose levels when eaten in isolation. Optimising your brown rice cake meal with additional fibre, protein, and healthy fats can improve your glucose response and make it a more complete and nutritious meal.
