Jowar roti is a type of Indian flatbread made from sorghum flour. It has become more popular because it doesn’t contain gluten and is packed with nutrients. But recent studies show that eating jowar roti may affect how the body processes sugar, making it a subject of interest among researchers and health enthusiasts.

Sorghum power: Maxim is ing the benefits of wheat roti alternatives
• Try to pair jowar roti with high-fibre and protein-rich food to slow glucose release and keep you feeling full.
• You can include healthy fats like avocado, nuts or olive oil in your meal to further slow down glucose release and increase satisfaction.
• Try reducing the jowar roti portion and increasing fibre-rich veggies to lower the carb content and stabilise blood glucose.
• Consider choosing complex carbs like brown rice or sweet potato over simple carbs to prolong digestion and provide lasting energy.
• Try to implement the food flow and aim to have fibre first, followed by protein and complex carbs.

Jowar roti helps to improve glucose metabolism due to its low glycaemic index. It digests slowly, causing a gradual rise in blood sugar levels. This reduces the risk of spikes and crashes. By pairing it with fibre, protein and healthy fats, you can further slow down glucose release and improve your body’s response to carbohydrates.
