Sandesh: A not-so-sweet reminder for managing your blood sugar

Many people love Sandesh, a Bengali sweet. This sweet dish ranks low on the food score due to the presence of simple carbs which leads to hyperglycemia. A lot of sugar is also present in the form of glucose and sucrose. Another thing that can happen is if glucose fluctuates, the low-fat content may change the GI of the meal and show a glucose flatline.

Optimising the mouth-watering Sandesh to improve glucose management
• Try changing the flour. Switch to no-carb or low-carb flour like almond flour or coconut flour.
• Make keto mithai recipes if you want to stay within range and optimise the nutritional value of your food.
• The alternative to table sugar might be to use a plant-based sweetener such as stevia.

A common myth that prevails in society is that to maintain blood sugar levels, you cannot eat sweets at all. However, choosing to prepare them wisely can be a game changer. By avoiding sugar, which is a simple carbohydrate without any nutritional value, Sandesh can be consumed safely.
