Kanji is an Indian dish prepared from rice, split pulses, and water-cooked vegetables. It has a high glycemic index. This dish is high in carbohydrates and can raise blood sugar levels quickly, leading to hyperglycemia if consumed in large amounts. Additionally, Kanji prepared with ghee or other fats could increase the risk of hyperglycemia.

Optimise your kanji intake without impacting blood sugar
• Consider portion control by limiting water to 0.5 cups.
• Try combining it with cooked 100 gms protein to stabilise glucose spikes.
• Try adding non-starchy vegetables to balance out the low food score.

Kanji can be healthy when consumed in moderation and with a few modifications. It contains simple carbohydrates that are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. They cause a rapid rise in blood glucose levels which can be extremely dangerous. Simple carbs have the potential to raise insulin and blood sugar levels abruptly. Consuming too many simple carbohydrates might cause complications and health issues. It further leads to a condition known as hyperglycemia, where blood glucose levels remain elevated for an extended period.
