Paneer Power: Low GI and High Protein for Blood Sugar Control

Paneer is a very healthy food option for a glucose-friendly meal. It is low in glycemic index, rich in protein and low in carbohydrates. Paneer roll, though, gets a low food score because of the wrap which is made from maida or wheat, which are high GI foods and can cause blood sugar spikes. However, you need not be disheartened. Here are some tips to make paneer roll an appropriate fit for a blood sugar-balancing diet.

Make paneer roll healthier for blood sugar
• Consider making the paneer roll wrap from low-carb flour like almond flour, coconut flour, or flaxseed flour.
• Replacing the roti wraps altogether with a broad, green, leafy vegetable like lettuce or cabbage is a very healthy alternative.
• Add veggies to your paneer roll to increase the fibre content.
• Cook it in a minimum amount of low-fat oil.
• You may opt for low-fat paneer to make your paneer roll.

Paneer has a low glycemic index, thus it does not cause a sharp rise in sugar levels. High protein and calcium levels in paneer also aid with good blood sugar control. Make your paneer roll with at least 100 g of cooked low-fat paneer, low-carb flour wrap, and fibrous veggies to meet your protein requirement and to follow the ideal food flow of fibre > protein > fat > complex carbs.
