You can swap barley for rice in diabetes

Eating barley instead of white rice will decrease sugar levels. Barley also has a low glycemic index and does not raise blood sugar levels as much as brown rice after meals. Barley can be used in place of rice in many dishes, including salads and soups. Serving grains about ¼ of a meal, is a helpful strategy that lends itself to healthy weight management and blood sugar control.
