10 answers found

In conclusion, brown rice is a more health beneficial food for diabetics and hyperglycemic individuals than milled rice.

BACKGROUND Improving the carbohydrate quality of the diet by replacing the common cereal staple white rice (WR) with brown rice (BR) could have beneficial effects on reducing the risk for diabetes and related complications.

Among carbohydrate-rich foods, pasta has a low glycemic index, which has beneficial effects on the regulation of body weight, blood glucose and insulin metabolism, and plasma lipid control.

Boiling red rice with ghee or cooking red rice with ghee pilaf-style may provide beneficial effects on postprandial blood glucose and insulin concentrations.

Thus, intake of pre-germinated brown rice may have a beneficial effect in the treatment of diabetes, in particular diabetic neuropathy.

The role of nutritional and botanical substances in the management of insulin resistance requires further elaboration; however, available information suggests some substances are capable of positively influencing insulin resistance.

Rice having lower glycemic and insulinemic impact is a better suited food for diabetic individuals who already have a compromised insulin status.

These results suggest that high consumption of rice and noodles may contribute to hyperglycaemia through greater insulin resistance and that this relationship is independent of adiposity and systemic inflammation.

The present study determined that intake of high amylose rice with resistant starch (RS) can attenuate postprandial blood glucose and insulin response in comparison to short grain rice.

Inulin-enriched pasta improved lipidic and glicidic metabolism as well as the insulin resistance in healthy young subjects.
