Rice Can Actually Help Stabilize Blood Sugar Levels
That may be odd to hear as white rice is mostly starch and fairly high on the glycemic index. The glycemic index is commonly used to rank foods based on how they affect blood sugar. High glycemic foods such as sodas, fruit juices, sweetened breakfast cereals, candy, white bread and yes, white rice, can spike blood sugar levels more easily than other foods. Over time, high blood sugar can lead to weight gain and type II diabetes.
