Mushrooms are a great source of nutrition. They are high in protein, fibre, vitamins, and minerals. They are also low in fat, making them a healthy addition to any meal. But mushroom risotto has a high glycemic index food. That can be a downside for those looking to maintain healthy glucose levels. When combined with a high-GI grain such as risotto, mushrooms can lead to a rapid spike and crash in blood sugar, resulting in a poor score

Balance your glucose levels even with risotto
• Consider using cauliflower rice or black rice instead of white rice. These grains are lower on the glycemic index and can help stabilise your glucose levels.
• Shirataki noodles are a great alternative to white rice. They have a low glycemic index and can help reduce the spike and subsequent crash in glucose levels.
• Try practising portion control to 30-50 grams of risotto.

Mushroom risotto is made of white rice, mushrooms, butter, broth, and cheese. White rice is a high glycemic index food, which is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, rapidly increasing blood sugar levels. Eating too much white rice can lead to hyperglycemia, which can be bad if left untreated.
