[Lower blood sugar] How effective is the sugar-reducing rice cooker?

  Sugar reduction rice cooker vs ordinary rice cooker?

  Sugar-reducing rice cookers are popular in Japan, so what is the difference between sugar-reducing rice cookers and ordinary rice cookers?

  Sugar-reducing rice cooker rice cooker has two major components, the outer pot and the inner pot. When cooking, put the rice in the inner pot of the manhole, and pour water into the outer pot. At the beginning, the rice will be soaked in water. With the rice cooking process, the sugar in the rice will decompose in the water. The inner pot will slowly rise, and the rice will no longer be filled with sugary rice water. Finally, the sugar-reduced rice will be steamed slowly, and the taste will remain soft and cooked.

  How effective is the sugar-reducing rice cooker? Yuanshuai Liu, an assistant professor of engineering education at the Department of Chemistry and Biological Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, tested a sugar-reducing rice cooker on the market a few weeks ago.

  The test method is to take the drained rice water as a sample after cooking, and then measure the carbohydrate content. After several experiments, what is the result?

  He pointed out that cooking 200 grams of rice and reducing the amount of sugar is only equivalent to eating one tablespoon less rice. Scientifically speaking, he thinks that it is not effective. He also said that using ordinary rice cookers to cook rice and adding more water to cook, if you still eat the same amount, such as a bowl of rice, or it also has the effect of reducing sugar absorption, it is recommended to replace rice with grains of grains to reduce sugar more effectively.

  In fact, sugar reduction does not necessarily rely on sugar reduction rice cookers, there are ways to reduce sugar daily.

  Do you want to control sugar? What's wrong with sugar?

  What effect does sugar have on our body? Taking refined sugar as an example, there is no nutrition but only calories, and it is easy to cause blood sugar to rise after ingestion.

  1. Eat less refined sugar: refined sugar refers to natural sugars that are not contained in the food itself, but artificially processed sugar, such as granulated sugar, rock sugar, brown sugar, brown sugar, high fructose corn syrup, etc.

  2. Eat less exquisite starch: Exquisite starch is especially easy to be digested and absorbed by the human body, causing blood sugar to rise rapidly, and it is also easy to promote fat accumulation. Foods made from starch that has been processed to remove bran and seed coats, such as rice, rice noodles, noodles, and rice balls are fine starch.

  3. Rice substitutes: Wu Xiaona, an approved dietitian, recommends that diabetic patients replace brown rice or refined pasta with high-fiber carbohydrate foods such as brown rice, red rice, and wheat bread. Because these foods have higher fiber content, it takes longer time to digest and absorb, so that blood sugar rises slowly, which helps control blood sugar.

  4. Low-sugar rice cooking method: If you use a reduced-sugar rice cooker or a low-sugar rice cooking method, it is recommended to take 1 tablespoon of white rice as the unit because the actual amount of "reduced sugar" in rice is unknown. Reduce or increase 1 tablespoon of white rice per meal, and then observe the body's reaction or changes.
