Everybody knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In this period we should eat protein, carbohydrates, fiber and many other nutrients. For caprichar, nothing like a fruit with oatmeal, a cup of coffee and a bread … or tapioca? What will be healthier?
Many people have changed the French roll for tapioca, seeking to be healthier and consume fewer calories. But is he right this exchange? The endocrinologist Dr. Viviane Christina de Oliveira explains that the tapioca has a high concentration of carbohydrates and has no fibers or vitamins. Its advantages are thanks to the unique ingredient, cassava starch, which contains no fat, no gluten and no sodium.
In addition, people suffering from diabetes also need to take some care with tapioca. By presenting a high glycemic index, tapioca causes hyperglycemia.
To avoid this lack of blood glucose levels, endocrinologist indicates fill tapioca with vegetables or chicken, or egg, or tuna or cottage. It is also better with chia mixed in the mass before going to pan.
Therefore, in general, the tapioca is, yes, a good alternative to replace white bread, but who return the bread for tapioca, thinking only of the amount of calories, you can make the same mistake of who takes gluten from the diet and begins to eat food without fiber.
“Balance and common sense only do well. Before you add or delete some food of your menu it is important to check if the fad diet has all the nutrients your body needs! Consult an Endocrinologist and Nutritionist “he concludes.
