Mr. Lybrate-user, chapatis are like roti and rice, as all these foods contain starch. Starch is converted to glucose in the intestine. Hence, eating more chapatis is definitely not beneficial or advisable. Wheat flour from which chapatis are made is containing mainly starch. 100 g of whole wheat flour gives 407 calories, about 87 g of carbohydrate, 16 g of proteins and 2 g of fats. Hence, taking more wheat flour as chapatis is definitely ideal for controlling diabetes. It can be a part of the total food. As far as I know, hardly anyone will depend on chapati only for sugar control.
