Common indian foods such as chapati and rice can be eaten by diabetics in moderation, but different varieties are better suited to diabetic diets because they have lower glycemic indexes. Consult your doctor about the importance of choosing foods with a low glycemic index.
Carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables and grains are not metabolized into glucose at the same rate. Some are quickly digested, causing spikes in blood glucose and insulin release, while others are broken down more slowly, which impacts blood sugar and insulin levels to a much lesser degree. The glycemic index is a comparative measure of how quickly a carbohydrate is reduced into glucose.
In general, foods with index values of 55 or less have low impact on blood sugar levels and are considered most appropriate for diabetics.
Index values between 56 and 69 are considered to have a moderate impact on blood glucose and insulin, whereas values of 70 or greater represent significant impact.
The glycemic index of rice depends on whether the grain is polished or not, whereas the index of chapati depends on the type of flour used.
Rice for diabetics
Diabetics can safely eat all types of rice, although their portions should be moderated. In the production of brown rice, only the outermost hull is removed from the rice kernel. White rice is further milled, processed and polished, which reduces the nutritional value of the grain. In addition to containing more vitamins and minerals, brown rice is also a little higher in fiber, which causes your body to digest it more slowly.
As a consequence, the glycemic index of brown rice is around 68, whereas long-grain white rice has an index of about 73.
Chapati for diabetics
The most traditional type of chapati is made from ground whole wheat and roasted on a pan.
The glycemic index for whole wheat chapati is about 62.
If you are diabetic, eating whole-grain chapati is an excellent alternative to eating regular sliced bread which has significantly higher glycemic indexes.
Brown rice contains many important nutrients and shouldn’t be excluded from your diet.
White rice has a higher glycemic index than both brown rice and chapati and is poorer in nutrients, so it shouldn’t be relied upon as a dietary staple if you are diabetic.
