Multigrain roti is a staple in Indian food that can impact glucose metabolism due to its carbohydrate content. It can potentially increase blood sugar levels, especially in individuals with insulin resistance . Multigrain roti seems like a healthy option but it needs to be optimised for balancing your blood sugar levels.

Smart Strategies for Eating Multigrain Roti
• Try to pair multigrain roti with high-fibre greens, protein, and healthy fats to slow glucose release.
• Reduce roti portion and increase veggies to balance and improve nutrition.
• Use low-GI grains like quinoa, and amaranth to reduce glucose fluctuations.
• Try to follow a food flow of fibre, protein, and complex carbs in that order.
• Consider incorporating physical activity after meals to help manage blood sugar levels.

Multigrain roti’s high carb content can raise glucose levels alone. But pairing it with fibre, protein, and healthy fats slows glucose absorption, improving glycemic control and metabolic health. Substituting simple carbs with complex carbs promotes better glucose metabolism and also helps in weight management. Therefore, balanced multigrain roti meals can manage glucose and reduce metabolic disorder risks.
