Diabetic rice, also known as low glycemic index (GI) rice or diabetic-friendly rice, is a specialised variety of rice developed to have a lower impact on blood sugar levels compared to traditional rice varieties. Its origin can be traced back to various research initiatives worldwide aimed at addressing the dietary needs of individuals with diabetes or those seeking to manage their blood sugar levels. While there isn't a specific scientific name for diabetic rice, it typically belongs to the Oryza sativa species within the Poaceae family. Diabetic rice has made its way to India as part of efforts to introduce healthier food options to the Indian population, particularly those with diabetes. 

Our diabetic rice is sourced from Karnataka, where research and cultivation of low GI rice varieties have gained traction in recent years. An interesting fact about diabetic rice is that it undergoes specific cultivation and processing techniques to reduce its carbohydrate content and glycemic index while preserving its nutritional value. Health-wise, diabetic rice offers a lower glycemic load, which helps stabilise blood sugar levels and may reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes. Culinary-wise, it can be used in place of traditional rice in a variety of dishes, including pilafs, biryanis, and rice-based desserts, offering a healthier alternative without compromising on taste or texture.

What is diabetic rice?

Diabetic rice is a specially selected type of rice that has a lower glycemic index (GI) compared to regular rice. It helps manage blood sugar levels and is suitable for people with diabetes.

How does diabetic rice help in managing blood sugar levels?

Diabetic rice has a lower glycemic index, which means it releases glucose more slowly into the bloodstream. This helps prevent spikes in blood sugar levels, making it a healthier option for diabetics.

Is diabetic rice suitable for everyday consumption?

Yes, diabetic rice can be consumed daily as part of a balanced diet. It is designed to be a healthier alternative to regular rice, making it a good choice for those looking to manage their blood sugar levels.

Can I use diabetic rice in traditional Indian recipes?

Absolutely! Diabetic rice can be used in all traditional Indian recipes like biryani, pulao, and idli, providing a healthier alternative without compromising on taste.

What is the glycemic index of diabetic rice?

The glycemic index of diabetic rice typically ranges from 50 to 60, which is lower than that of regular white rice. This lower GI helps in better blood sugar control.

Is diabetic rice different from brown rice?

Yes, diabetic rice is specifically selected for its lower glycemic index, while brown rice is whole grain rice with the bran layer intact. Both are healthier options, but diabetic rice is particularly beneficial for managing blood sugar levels.

How do I cook diabetic rice?

Diabetic rice can be cooked the same way as regular rice. Rinse the rice thoroughly, add the appropriate amount of water, and cook it on the stove, in a rice cooker, or in a pressure cooker until tender.

How does diabetic rice help in weight management?

Diabetic rice has a lower glycemic index and higher fibre content, which can help in controlling hunger and reducing overall calorie intake. This makes it a supportive option for weight management.

Can I mix diabetic rice with other types of rice?

Yes, you can mix diabetic rice with other types of rice if desired. However, to get the full benefits of its low glycemic index, it is best consumed on its own.
