White rice and glucose metabolism: The risk

Written by Team Ultrahuman

Curd, white rice, and yellow dal are all rich sources of carbohydrates converted to sugars during digestion. Furthermore, white rice is a common spiker of glucose levels and is considered one of the high-GI foods with an approximate glycaemic index of 82. Additionally, dal is another spiker as it has more carbohydrates than protein. Although these sources may lead to hyperglycemia, they are also high in protein.

Eating rice the right way
• Consider replacing regular white rice with cauliflower rice accompanied with curd to stabilize glucose metabolism.
• You may consume rice in a balanced and proportionate size to maintain stable blood sugar levels. One cup of rice (cooked) per meal is advised to maintain glucose metabolism.
• To make a healthier choice, try replacing white rice with fibre-rich salad. This is a simple method to lower your starch consumption, while still giving your body the nutrients it requires.

Eating white rice with dal can significantly increase blood sugar levels. However, consuming them in moderate quantities along with curd can help preserve stable glucose levels. The fibre in these items can slow the pace at which hyperglycemia enters the system. Hence, all of these meals are great suppliers of essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals.
