Misal pav, a popular Indian street food, is made with sprouted legumes, spices, and bread (pav). The association between misal pav and glucose metabolism depends on various factors, such as the ingredients, portion size, and cooking methods. Misal pav can be high in carbohydrates and have a high glycemic load, which can lead to a spike in blood glucose levels.

Optimizing the intake of Misal Pav by stabilizing your Blood Glucose Levels
• Choose low-GI (Glycemic Index) ingredients, as these legumes are a good source of protein and fibre.
• Use whole-grain bread instead of white bread as it is rich in fibre and has a lower GI, and add a bowl of vegetable salad to the meal.
• Add soy chunks or granules to the misal to make the meal protein-rich.
• Eat smaller portions as it can help to prevent blood glucose spikes.
• Walk for at least 10 minutes after eating.

Misal pav can impact glucose metabolism due to some ingredients’ high carbohydrate and glycemic index. However, incorporating low-GI legumes, whole-grain bread, and vegetables while watching portion sizes can help regulate blood glucose levels and prevent metabolic disorders. A balanced and mindful approach to consuming misal pav is essential.
