If you’re a fan of chicken fried rice, you might be curious about how it affects your blood sugar levels. The combination of rice and chicken provides a good amount of protein and carbohydrates, but the added oils and fats in the dish can slow down the digestion and absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. As a result, it’s essential to be mindful of portion sizes and pair the meal with fibre-rich vegetables to balance the glucose impact.

Tips for Managing Blood Sugar Levels with Chicken Fried Rice
• Go for Cauli or black rice as they have a lower GI and can help stabilise blood sugar levels.
• Load protein by adding extra chicken, tofu or shrimp, to your fried rice. This can help slow down the carb digestion and absorption of glucose.
• Opt for smaller portions of rice and pair your meal with steamed veggies to add more fibre and nutrients.

While chicken fried rice may not be ideal for those looking to manage their blood sugar levels, there are ways to make it healthier. By choosing brown rice, adding protein-rich ingredients, and including plenty of fibre-rich vegetables, you can slow down the digestion and absorption of glucose, leading to a more gradual and steady rise in blood sugar levels.
