The Chapati-Chicken Connection: How They Impact Your Glucose Metabolism

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Chapati and chicken are popular foods consumed in many parts of the world. Combining these two foods impacts glucose metabolism, the process by which the body converts carbohydrates into energy. The balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fat in these foods, as well as portion control, can influence glucose levels.

Optimize Your Chapati and Chicken Meal for Better Glucose Control
• Choose a low-carb flour such as almond flour, coconut flour or lupin flour to make your chapati.
• Use lean chicken cuts like chicken breast.
• Be mindful of the condiments or sauces that you use in the chicken preparation. Ensure that they don’t contain any hidden sugars.
• Pair the chicken with a low-glycemic side dish like a mixed salad or sauteed vegetables.

The balance and timing of macronutrient intake and portion control influence glucose metabolism. Carbohydrates, such as those found in chapati, can cause glucose spikes. At the same time, protein, like that found in chicken, can slow down glucose absorption. Overall, the right combination of the two can provide a stable glucose response.
