Noodle Know-How: Decoding how noodles can impact your blood sugar

Noodles contain a high amount of carbohydrates due to their starchy nature. They are made from processed grains that convert complex carbs into simple carbs. The simple carbs break down very quickly, causing spikes in blood sugar. Also, noodles don’t contain protein and fibre and the absence of these macronutrients also causes blood sugar spikes.

How to satisfy your noodle cravings without raising blood sugar
• Try increasing the veggies in the noodles to meet the fibre requirement by adding them as sauteed veggies or as a salad.
• Try pairing the noodles with veggies with a protein source to make it a complete meal.
• Consider practising portion control and plan your meal by eating fibre first, then protein and finally complex carbs. This will reduce blood sugar spikes by up to 75%.
• Try drinking apple cider vinegar with water 10 minutes before eating noodles can help to prevent blood sugar spikes.

Foods that are high in carbs like noodles can cause high blood sugar, inflammation and weight gain. Noodles made from whole grains, oats, shirataki noodles or even zucchini noodles instead of regular noodles are not only healthier but can help to manage blood sugar levels. So, consume noodles with vegetables and proteins to make the most of your meals.
