Introduction: Traditional Pakistani Biryani is popular food particularly among Asian population. The objective of this study was to evaluate glycemic response of compound test food in conjunction with Food Oriented Diet Safety in healthy human subjects.

Material and methods: This Quasi-Interventional Study was conducted in research unit of Baqai medical university. This study was conducted in period of two days and twenty healthy volunteers were enrolled. On day 1; fasting blood sugars were checked. Subsequently on day 2 participants were instructed to report with 12 hr. fasting, Later Compound test food was offered according to Health Body Mass Index (BMI) and Calories Calculator. Sequential plasma glycemic response was recorded on 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes.

Results: Day 1, Glycemic response of study subjects showed mean glycemic value of 104 mg/dl. Day 2, glycemic response of 0, 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes showed of 118,130, 121,109, 106 mg/dl respectively. This study highlights desirable incremental and decremented glycemic response after 30 & 120 mins respectively.

Conclusion: This study concludes; that consumption of tested compound food according to BMI expected to have physiological mean peak glycemic response. Therefore this study identifies that consumption of beef biryani is safe; as study population never showed abnormal mean glycemic peak.
