When we eat ordinary white rice, long or short, our blood sugar levels rise as this type of rice is packed with carbohydrates. A rise in blood sugar is true for all foods to some extent, but white rice, so high in carbohydrate and low in fiber, makes it particularly difficult to keep blood sugar levels anywhere near their healthy range. The glycemic index of food measures how quickly blood sugar levels rise when that food is eaten. The glycemic load is based on the glycemic index but calculated for the amount of the food. A healthy target for the glycemic load is 100 per day. The glycemic load for one cup of rice is 24, but a new breed of rice could change that. The journal Diabetes Technology and Therapy in January 2016 reported on a new strain of rice tested at the Madras Diabetes Research Foundation in Chennai, India, and several other institutions. High fiber white rice was biochemically analyzed. It was given to 45 healthy individuals. Their blood sugar levels were tested to calculate the glycemic index or GI of the rice. The high fiber rice was found to have five times the amount of fiber as regular rice. The glycemic index of the high fiber white rice was classified as a medium GI rather than high, or 23 percent lower than regular rice. The fiber in food slows down the absorption of sugar, resulting in a lower glycemic index (GI). High amylose white rice also holds some promise. Amylose is a kind of sugar that is absorbed slowly, due to its molecular shape. In July 2015, the journal Nutrients reported on a study dealing with high amylose rice. Investigators at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu, USA compared three types of rice. Eighteen healthy volunteers were given ordinary white rice and two strains of high amylose rice on different days. Blood sugar levels when participants ate high amylose rice were lower... 45 minutes, 60 minutes, and 120 minutes later, compared with regular rice. Rice containing higher fiber and amylose levels could be a help someday in preventing and controlling Type 2 diabetes. Rice supplies... 23 percent of the folate an adult needs each day to maintain good health. it has 12 percent of niacin and 17 percent of thiamin, as well as iron and some calcium. One cup even supplies 8 percent of an adult's daily need for protein, as well as 20.5 mg of omega-3 fatty acid and 98.0 mg of omega-6 fatty acid. Although managing your disease can be very challenging, Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. You can make simple changes to your daily routine and lower both your weight and your blood sugar levels. Hang in there, the longer you do it, the easier it gets.
