Your glucose levels can go toast!

Many prefer toasted bread with butter for breakfast. In fact, some experts claim that toasted bread technically has a slightly lower glycemic index (GI) compared to regular bread. It is believed that because of certain chemical reactions, carbs break down during toasting. But even so, hyperglycemia is still a concern due to the flour used.

Toast to a Better Toast!
• Try adding protein and fats in addition to alternative flour options. This will change the GI of the meal.
• Consider multigrain bread or grain-free, seed-based bread. Bread made using almond flour will also work. They will not cause spikes due to their low-carb structure.
• Pair with protein options like 100gms cooked tofu/paneer or eggs. Add avocado fats as a side option.

Studies show that the right choice of flour can sometimes make all the difference. Further, your bread toast can be made nutrient-rich by adding various vegetables and spreads to provide fibre, protein, vitamins, and minerals. This is a good way to optimize toasted bread without causing glucose spikes.
