Dal rice, a traditional Indian dish made from lentils and rice, may have a positive impact on glucose metabolism. Lentils are high in fibre and protein, which can slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, while rice provides a source of carbohydrates.

Dal rice may help regulate blood sugar levels. Some studies have also shown that the resistant starch in rice may have a positive effect on gut health and insulin sensitivity.

Stabilization of Blood Glucose Levels while having Dal Rice
• Choose brown or whole-grain rice, as these varieties are higher in fibre and may help slow down the absorption of glucose.
• Use lentils with a low glycemic index, such as green or brown lentils, which can help prevent blood sugar spikes.
• Eat dal rice as part of a balanced meal that includes protein and healthy fats, which can help further slow down glucose absorption and promote satiety.
• You can also use low-carbohydrate rice variations such as cauliflower rice to prevent glucose spikes.

The high fibre and protein content of lentils, combined with carbohydrates in rice, can slow down glucose absorption into the bloodstream, reducing the risk of blood sugar spikes. This may help regulate glucose metabolism. The resistant starch in rice may also have a positive effect on insulin sensitivity and glucose metabolism.
