In Singapore, more than 400,000 people have diabetes, with every one in three projected to develop the condition.

Dashmesh is proud to play its part in this global pursuit through Temasek Gold Basmati Rice. It is certified low in Glycaemic Index (GI), which means that it is digested and absorbed more slowly than other white and brown rice, and may prevent spikes in blood sugar levels, which makes it the suitable choice for people with diabetes. With its quality and taste also preferred by top chefs, no wonder Temasek Gold is the right choice! 

A reliable measure of food that is suitable for diabetics is its GI, with low GI  foods being more suitable. Tested and certified to have a low GI of 45 by the Temasek Polytechnic Glycaemic Index Research Unit (GIRU), Temasek Gold’s GI is even lower than that of regular brown rice, which typically has a GI of 65. For comparison, regular Japanese rice has a GI in the unhealthy range of 85.
