Rice, Spice, and Everything Nice: Balancing Blood Sugar with Pulav

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Pulav is a rice-based meal. It is a high-carbohydrate food that can cause fluctuations in glucose levels. The impact on blood glucose levels depends on various factors like the amount of rice, cooking method, and other ingredients. However, adding fibre-rich vegetables can lessen the impact.

Stabilizing your glucose level while eating pulav
• Try to have fibre-rich vegetables or protein-rich foods with the biryani.
• Try to choose brown or basmati rice, which has a lower glycemic index.
• Practice portion control and avoid overeating pulav.
• Avoid adding sweeteners; instead, use herbs and spices for flavouring.
• Try to have apple cider vinegar (ACV) with water for 5 to 10 minutes before eating pulav.

When pulav is consumed, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose and thus rapidly raise the blood sugar level. However, adding fibre-rich vegetables and practising portion control can lower the overall impact. This slows down the digestion of carbohydrates, thus reducing the effect on blood glucose levels. The science behind the link between pulav and glucose levels underscores the importance of choosing a balanced, nutrient-dense diet to support overall health and well-being.
