Carbohydrates in food include grains/grain products, pulses, fruits/vegetables and sugar or sugar based drinks. To ensure healthy carbohydrate intake, you have to eat less of simple sugar based food stuff/drinks and more of fruits, vegetables and whole grains. We are not asking you to give up on pleasure of eating, find below tips on how to take small steps for a big health benefit:
if whole grain flour is mentioned as the first ingredient, then only it is really whole grain!
Also, check these whole grain products for bad fats (SFA, Trans FAs and cholesterol and added sugars), which might offset the benefits of whole grains!
they may have added bad fats, sugars or high quantities of salt, thus offsetting the claimed benefits substantially
add brown rice, ragi flour, boiled barley etc. in your menu and reap additional benefits
nearly half of maida (wheat flour/all purpose flour) can be replaced with atta (whole wheat flour) with good results
