In addition to being a popular Japanese dish, sushi is also regarded as an incredibly delicious and healthy dish. However, when we talk about maintaining glucose levels in particular, this may not be true. Sushi is made of sticky rice, which has a high GI. This results in low insulin response contributing to hyperglycemia. Consequently, you need to be careful about its consumption.

Tips to make your sushi healthier and blood sugar friendly
• Choose sashimi (pure protein) without rice (instead of maki rolls) for a more stable glucose response.
• You can make it a complete meal (fibre + protein) by serving it with a side salad and a protein-rich dish.
• Try to avoid high-sugar sauces.
• You can use brown rice or quinoa as they may help manage your blood sugar.

Salmon in sushi has Omega-3 fatty acids which are healthy for blood sugar. These are good fats that are helpful in fighting other health problems. Starch-filled white rice makes Sushi a problematic dish. Choose sushi with minimal rice and cooked fish to lessen the negative effects.
