Glycemic and Lipemic Response to Various Regional Meals and South Indian Snacks

  title={Glycemic and Lipemic Response to Various Regional Meals and South Indian Snacks},
  author={IU Mani and Uma M Iyer and Bhukya Prakash and Thulashie Manivannan and Scott Campbell and Shaival Chandalia},
The glycemic index (GI) and the triacyglycerol response were determined in ninety normal subjects given 75g carbohydrate portions of various South Indian snacks and regional Indian meals. The glycemic and lipemic responses obtained varied considerably. Certain fast-moving South Indian snacks (such as Idli with chutney and Dosai with Podi) showed higher GI’s as compared to other traditional South-Indian snacks. The South Indian whole meal had the lowest glycemic and lipemic response amongst all…

Effect of redesigned Indian mixed meals on blood glucose and insulin levels in normal versus type 2 diabetic subjects–a comparative study
All the seven meals were found to have postprandial glycemic control in normal subjects and a good postpr and insulinemic control in type 2 diabetic subjects, and hence appropriate for routine consumption by diabetic subjects.
Glycemic index (GI) of four Indian regional meals supplemented with 2.5 g of spray dried spriulina powder, was determined in twenty four normal subjects in the age group of 20-25 years.
Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load of Selected Foods Incorporated with Green Leafy Vegetables, Millets and Soy Products
Inclusion of fibre rich greens and millets and protein rich soy products certainly reduces the GI simultaneously improving the nutritive value and GMS Roti topped the list with respect to overall acceptability.
Hypoglycaemic and hypolipidaemic effects of low GI and medium GL Indian diets in type 2 diabetics for a period of 4 weeks: A prospective study
This prospective study reports significant hypoglycaemic and hypolipidaemic effects in type 2 diabetic subjects who were provided the complete diet plan to be on low glycaemic index (GI) and
Estimation of glycemic carbohydrate and glycemic index/load of commonly consumed cereals, legumes and mixture of cereals and legumes
The results of the study indicated that pulses have low glycemic indices and glycemic loads, hence, could be safely used in the diet of diabetic patients.
Dietary carbohydrates, glycemic load and serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations among South Indian adults
It is indicated that both total carbohydrates and dietary glycemic load intake are inversely associated with plasma HDL-C concentrations among Asian Indians, with dietary gly diabetic load having a stronger association.
Assessment of glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) for selected traditional millet-based Indian recipes
Estimation of the glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) data of traditional millet-based recipes of India indicates that traditional Indian cooked foods had medium to high GI with a GL range of 18.06 to 31.29, indicating that classification and use of traditional Indiancooked foods based on their GI and GL for the medical nutrition therapy of diabetes mellitus is necessary.
A Comprehensive Review on Rasam: A South Indian Traditional Functional Food
This review is an attempt to compile the literatures on rasam, its ingredients, and to highlight its medicinal potential that has been underestimated.

The lipid profile of experimental subjects was improved after consumption of millet mix and the plasma glucose of experimental diabetic and non-diabetics with control group was significant and after intervention the fasting blood glucose reduced upto 16-19% in experimental subjects.


Glycemic index of traditional Indian carbohydrate foods.
The glycemic index (GI) was determined in 36 non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus patients who were fed 50 g carbohydrate portions of six Indian conventional foods, including rice, a combination of rice-legume, and a combinationOf rice-dal (greengram dal and redgramdal -- dal is dehusked and split legume).
Glycaemic index of conventional carbohydrate meals
The glycaemic index (GI) and the triacylglycerol response were measured in thirty non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus patients given 50 g portions of five different conventional Indian meals
Factors affecting starch digestibility and the glycemic response with special reference to legumes.
Legumes exemplify a class of foods, high in fiber, protein and antinutrients, with a starch which is digested slowly in vitro, which will allow greater therapeutic use of diet in the management of diabetics and disorders of carbohydrate metabolism.
Effect of starch structure on glucose and insulin responses in adults.
The sustained plasma glucose levels after the amylose meal with reduced insulin requirement suggestAmylose starch may be of potential benefit to carbohydrate-sensitive or diabetic individuals.
Physical factors influencing postprandial glucose and insulin responses to starch.
It was concluded that the physical form of the rice was of particular importance in determining the postprandial glucose and insulin responses to rice and that fiber played a relatively minor role in this instance.
The glycaemic index of foods tested in diabetic patients: A new basis for carbohydrate exchange favouring the use of legumes
Comparisons of the glycaemic responses to 50 g carbohydrate portions of different foods taken as breakfast test meals by groups of five to seven diabetic patients suggest a potentially valuable role for dried leguminous seeds in carbohydrate exchanges for individuals with impaired carbohydrate tolerance.
Study on the Glycemic Index of Selected Cereals and Cereal-Green Leafy Vegetable Combinations in Non-insulin-dependent Diabetes Mellitus Patients
The glycemic index (GI) and triglyceride response were determined in 30 non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus patients who were given 50-g portions of five cereal and cereal-green leafy vegetable
Insulin and Glucose Responses to Various Starch-Containing Foods in Type II Diabetic Subjects
The results indicate that the insulin response cannot be predicted by the glucose response, and this insulin response to several different high-starch foods was systematically study.

The dietary fiber content and composition of 25 foods were related to their glycemic index (GI) to see whether the individual components of dietary fiber, specifically soluble fiber, would provide a
