Diabrice and Diabwheat

Introducing rice and wheat with the lowest Glycemic Index – Diabrice and Diabwheat, a breakthrough innovation called HYTHER HERBA TECHNOLOGY

Diabrice and Diabwheat are 100% organically treated normal rice and whole wheat atta with Glycemic Index reduced to 42-53, ideal for Diabeties and Obesity patients. It has no significant difference in color, appearance, and odor or even in taste while cooked from the normal rice and atta and can be used for cooking any rice and atta recipes including our daily meals. Now diabetic and obesity patients can have sumptuous rice meals using Diabrice and Diabwheat and they will be absolutely free from any kind of restrictions in using Rice and Atta. This path breaking innovation is the result of  years of intensive research done by Aditya Food Industries.

Diabetes in India        

Diabetes  is one of the most prevalent diseases in the world and it often runs in families, one generation after the other. “According to the Diabetes Atlas of 2009, there were 50.8 million people with diabetes in India. In just two years, this figure has gone up by 12 million. Obviously, diabetes in India is progressing exponentially. Also, we see that it has shifted to the 25-34 years age group,” ICMR-INDIALAB study 2011. This study revealed that today India leads the world with its largest number of diabetic people in any given country. The type 2 diabetes accounts for over 90-95% of diabetic people. It is becoming a fast spreading menace to humanity, particularly Kerala.  Its reported that one among every three Keralites is a diabetic patient. One third of these people take insulin injection daily to manage their diabetes.  Not much research is done to measure the impact of our changing food habits in increasing the diabetic level.


Rice and Atta are the main dish of  Indians and for most of us, our daily 3 meals pattern is based mainly on rice or atta based dishes.  Restriction on food by doctors comes first on rice and then atta based food in the case of Diabetic patients. No wonder, a food of high glycemic value gets restricted first.  The Glycemic Index (GI) of normal rice is 70 to 85 and that of atta is 65-80. Some variants of rice has Glycemic Index up to even 95. Since being the main source of carbohydrates, the Glycemic index of the food plays a vital role in increasing the sugar level of diabetic patients.

Managing sugar level

According to a recently published Harvard study, a low glycemic diet ranked highly for maintaining metabolism during weight loss and managing our sugar level. Low GI foods have a GI of 55 and below, medium GI foods have a GI of 56 to 69 and high GI foods have a measure of over 70. WHO (World Health Organization) and IMA (Indian Medical Association) advise Diabetic patients to take only low GI food. Glycemic index of Rice is no way near to the recommended level of 55 which is normally 70-85. That is why most of the diabetic patients turn to Wheat instead of Rice.


Is wheat an ideal diabetic food?

The GI of wheat is not compatible with the GI of ideal diabetic food (GI below 55) and GI of wheat is to the range of 60-75 (medium GI food). But the composition of carbohydrate in wheat makes it a favorite of diabetic patients. The percentage of SDS (Slowly Digestive Starch) in wheat is more than that of Rice, where as Rice contains more RDS (Rapidly Digestive Starch). This high RDS factor in rice is the reason for its high GI and makes rice a villain for Diabetes. Eating rice need not make anybody diabetic, but it will add the risk of a diabetic prone to become diabetic and will cause the increase of blood sugar level in diabetic patients. The net result is banning or restricting the use of rice food for diabetic patients.

Glycemic Index

The glycemic index is a measure that classifies carbohydrate containing foods depending on their ability to raise blood glucose level. It is the property of a food stuff to release glucose in blood within a specified time limit. Usually a diabetic patient measures the glucose level of blood before food (FBS) and 2 hours after taking food (PPBS). Consumption of high GI food will definitely increase the sugar level in our blood. So its banned for diabetic and obesity patients. Following a diet designed to keep blood sugar from rising after meals helped diabetic people to keep their disease under control, in a new study published in the latest Journal of the American Medical Association.

Certifications and testimonials

CTCRI (Central Tuber Crops Research Institute), Trivandrum, Kerala  and Sterling Test house has endorsed the Glycemic Index and organic purity of Diabrice and Institute of Chemical Technology, Mumbai has endorsed the Glycemic value of Diabwheat( Certificate copies enclosed with this mail). The full fledged laboratory at our factory ensures every consignment of Diabrice is maintaining the specified GI level which is well below 55.

Not only low GI, 100% organic too

The arsenic content of Diabrice is tested and certified by Sterling Test House, Cochin, Kerala as nil or of not detectable level, below 0.05 mg/kg. This is at par or better than the level of many self proclaimed 100% organic food now sold in the market. Diabrice is free from any chemical residue. No artificial chemicals are used in the treatment process, only used natural organic herbs instead.

In vivo report from MDRF

Madras Diabetic Research Foundation, an  internationally acclaimed non-profit Diabetes Research Organization based in Chennai, Tamilnadu has done an in vivo research on the impact of Diabrice in their patients and has given a clinical report certifying that Diabrice is safe for human consumption, effective on diabetic patients and has no side effects reported. We value this as the most important recommendation even though Diabrice possesses all in vitro reports and certifications.

ISO certificate for food safety and Management

Our factory at the Food Processing Zone, KINFRA Park, Elamannur, Pathanamthitta district has obtained two certificates from ISO for Food Safety (ISO 22000:2005) and for Management (9001:2008) separately.

Check your sugar level in the very first use of Diabrice and Diabwheat

The effect of Diabrice and Atta are visible and measurable in the very first use itself. Usually diabetic patients check their sugar level 2 times in a day: first one before taking food or on fasting (FBS) and the second one 2 hours after food (PPBS). Check both FBS and PPBS while you take the very first meal using Diabrice and Diabwheat. Your both reports will be similar or will not show much difference, a guaranteed positive result with your very first use of Diabrice and Diabwheat. In some cases, a slight variation may be recorded due to the intensity, type of diabetes and age of the patient. Those patients will get the desired result on continuous use of Diabrice Diabwheat. Type 1 diabetes may not respond positively, but luckily only 2-5% belong to this category.  Intake of normal rice and atta meals may result in an increase of 60-100 in anybody's sugar level, but the use of Diabrice and Diabwheat will not register any increase in blood sugar level.  Regular use of Diabrice and Diabwheat ensures an effective management of your sugar level.

Usage of Diabrice and Diabwheat

Diabrice and Diabwheat can be used like any normal rice for cooking any of our favorite dishes including daily meals. It has to be washed using clear water before cooking and cooking time is as normal as any other rice. Even the rice and wheat soup of Diabrice and Diabwheat can be consumed without any fear of increasing your sugar level. It can be used to make any of your favorite dishes like Idly, Appam, Dosa , Chappathi, etc.
