Written by Team Ultrahuman

Kala Chana and white rice have a detrimental effect on stabilizing glucose metabolism because kala Chana is an excellent source of complex carbs, while white rice is just carbohydrates. Moreover, chana contains more carbohydrates than protein, and rice has a higher glycemic index, which might cause hyperglycemia owing to the glycemic load. Hence, proportionately consuming them can prove to be healthier than consuming them frequently.

Incorporating Kala chana and rice in your diet: The right way
• Consuming chana, a rich source of carbohydrates, with salad, which is a good fiber source, will help keep the glucose level stable.
• It is recommended to consume chana with 30 grams of wheat(paratha) and add a small portion of paneer to make it healthier and tastier.
• Try replacing white rice with black rice or cauliflower rice, as they are slow-absorbing carbs that help maintain blood sugar levels.

According to research, incorporating protein-rich chana in your diet can aid in managing heart disease risk and controlling blood sugar. Compared to white rice, chana has a lower glycemic index value of 28-40, meaning it is less likely to cause a spike in blood sugar levels.
