Over the past few months, there has been keen interest on the link between diabetes and the consumption of refined carbohydrates such as white rice. This has generated discussions and debate among members of the public and health professionals. Some have shared their views about the comparison between rice and sugary drinks, and the basis for focusing on rice, given that our Asian ancestors have been eating rice for centuries with no apparent ill effect.

This has provided us an opportunity to communicate to the public on the benefits of whole grains consumption and the wider importance of diet quality, especially, carbohydrate quality, as part of strategy to reduce diabetes risk.  It is also timely that we share with our colleagues in the scientific and clinical community, Health Promotion Board’s (HPB) and Singapore Nutrition & Dietetics Association’s thinking underlying the reasons for adopting a carbohydrate strategy as part of primary prevention in Singapore’s War on Diabetes.

Please see our "Publications" link for the whole statement.
