Is Diabexy’s Sugar Control Atta Truly What It Claims To Be? (2023)
Flavors met nutrition and Diabexy Sugar Control Atta was manufactured. Details about the product down below.
Thanks to the numerous studies on long run impacts of fluctuating sugar levels and insulin spikes, we now have a better understanding of nutrition than ever.
A typical Indian meal is more often than not, heavy on carbohydrates and low-moderate on proteins and fats. Whole wheat rotis are among the two most-consumed carbohydrate sources. While whole wheat rotis are not ‘bad’ for health or calorie-dense, they may not be the most ideal for those with diabetes (or borderline diabetes). This is where Mishry’s Diabexy Sugar Control Atta review may be of use to you. The nutrition values, taste, texture, and all crucial details have been shed light on in this review.
Do note that a balanced meal comprising of carbohydrates, fiber, fats, and protein in the right proportions will keep you at your healthiest!

Our Review Factors
When reviewing Diabexy Sugar Control Atta, what were our parameters?
Taste, texture, and nutrition were the chief parameters. We also noted the price, packaging, and other non-taste-based parameters.
The composition of this flour is 40% nut and seeds mix and the remainder is a blend of soy, wheat, and lentils. What was the most prominent ingredient, taste-wise? Did the rotis made using this flour taste fresh? Natural?
Would they pair well with staple Indian gravies and curries?
We gauged the texture in four stages- the flour, while kneading, when eating warm, and eating once the rotis cooled down (considering people will take rotis in tiffins).
Was the flour a fine powder or coarse? Compared to whole wheat flour, how challenging was the kneading process? How long did it take to cook these rotis? What was the texture/mouthfeel like? Was it the same a few hours later? Did the rotis retain their softness?
Since whole wheat rotis are the most commonly consumed carbohydrate source, we compared the nutritional values of this with rotis made using Diabexy Sugar Control Atta.
What are the key differences? Macronutrients, overall calories? Considering rotis are something you eat 1-2 times daily, how is the ingredient list? Are the ingredients used low GI?

We like the clean, additive-free ingredient list, thumbs up for that. Comparing the nutritional values of the two, rotis made with Diabexy flour would be the better option for those with diabetes and even for someone looking to up their daily protein intake, naturally. This is because, Diabexy flour has more protein and fiber compared to whole wheat rotis which slows down the digestion process and prevents as intense insulin spikes which in turn, keeps you fuller for longer and keeps cravings/hunger pangs at bay.
On the contrary, these rotis are higher in calories and fat, so if you are looking to shed some pounds, you may want to stick to whole wheat rotis.
What makes Diabexy Sugar Control Atta Diabetic friendly?
Low GI (low glycemic index) ingredients are those foods that do not cause a large/sudden spike in your blood glucose levels. These ingredients have carbohydrates that take longer to break down and digest by the body.
Certain low GI foods include most fruits and veggies, lentils, nuts, and other food items with a GI score below 55.
Diabexy Sugar Control Flour is contains nuts and seeds that are sources of good fats which slow down digestion and soy which is protein-rich. It also contains lentils that are a low GI food.
How did we make these rotis?
Following the instructions on the pack, we used lukewarm water to knead the dough. Once done, it was set aside for 10 minutes before we rolled it out into chapatis. They were then roasted on a tawa.
Aroma + Appearance
The flour was not lumpy and it had a fresh, peanut-like aroma. It was similar to that of roasted peanuts. The flour had a deeper beige hue than whole wheat flour with some brown flecks of flax seeds.
Taste + Texture
Kneading this flour into a dough was surprisingly easy as this is not a gluten-free flour, it does have some form of wheat (isolate wheat protein) in it. Similarly, rolling out the rotis was not as challenging as a millet roti.
In terms of texture, these were fibrous and soft. They were not too chewy or hard, the texture was fairly similar to homemade whole wheat rotis. We tried them 3-4 hours later, once they cooled down. The rotis were still soft and had not turned moist.
As indicated by the ingredient list and aroma, the rotis made with Diabexy Sugar Control Atta were dominated by the flavor of peanuts. The flour was mildly salted which was well-reflected in the rotis. The characteristic flavors of other ingredients like soy flour and lentils were not as prominent. That said, the overall flavor profile will pair well with sabzis, kadhis, and other side dishes.
- High on protein
- Clean ingredients
- Low GI rotis
- Impressive texture
- Ideal for lunch boxes
- This is a steeply priced product. Almost 500 bucks for a kilo of atta!
If you’re looking to reduce your carbohydrate intake, up your protein intake, or simply manage sugar levels better, Diabexy Sugar Control Atta is something we would recommend you to try.
