Can Hot Rice Cause Diabetes?
Good evening, I want to ask … Does the rice that is heated in a rice cooker can cause diabetes? And is it really better to consume rice that is already cold because the sugar content is lower than rice that is heated with a rice cooker? Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
There are opinions of some experts who state that there are differences in sugar levels contained in hot and cold rice. Where sugar levels are higher in hot rice than cold rice. However, the difference is not so significant for controlling blood sugar levels (if someone with diabetes or diabetes consumes the same portion of hot and cold rice). The most important thing is how to measure the portion of rice at every meal and balance it with nutrients from protein, fat and fiber. In addition, diabetics are also expected to consume more foods containing high levels of complex carbohydrate nutrients, such as brown rice, oats and whole-grain processed foods (whole-grain bread). Fiber is needed to regulate blood sugar levels, so it is very necessary for diabetics to consume it at every meal. Because it is very influential, there are experts who conduct research to compare the levels of fiber in cooked rice for a long time or cooked and then warmed with a rice cooker with cooked and then cooled rice. From his research, it is known that fiber levels have decreased in cooked rice for a long time or cooked and then warmed with a rice cooker.
Besides eating patterns, do regular exercise to keep blood sugar levels under control. Finally, don't forget to always be on time with your doctor and take the medicine according to your doctor's recommendations.
