Brown Bread Or White Bread?! Which One Do You Choose?

Have you ever wondered why your doctor always advise your diabetic father/mother to have brown bread, brown rice and chapatis instead of white rice and white bread?

I will tell you why!
In simple terms, all the above said 'brown' variants have lower Glycemic Index than the 'white ones'. Now let us see what does Glycemic Index mean?

Those foods that spike up the blood sugar levels as soon as you eat them are called foods with High Glycemic Index.Some of them are white bread, most white rices, corn flakes,glucose, maltose etc. Such foods are not recommended for Diabetic patients.

Medium Glycemic Index foods are those which can be taken in moderate quantities by Diabetic patients.Some of them are whole wheat products,sweet potato, baked potatoes, basmati rice, etc.

On the other hand, foods like legumes, pulses, most fruits, veggies, chickpeas, kidney beans,etc. are safe for Diabetic patients since they have Low Glycemic Index which does not spike up sugar levels that easily.

Moreover, recent researches have found that people who follow the Low Glycemic Index diet over many years, are at reduced risk of developing Type II Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases,muscular degeneration etc.

So next time, when you go for grocery shopping, make sure you pick up more veggies, fruits,legumes and beans!!
