The study was designed to determine the blood glucose response of six different snakes/meals including chapatti + egg, chicken patty and pizza from three different local bakeries and pizza makers of Faisalabad, Pakistan. The approximate analysis of six different test meals was done for determination of carbohydrates, proteins, fats, ash and fibre contents. A group of 6 normal and 6 diabetic human volunteers were selected and given the test and control meals randomly. The volunteers were fed different meals containing 50g carbohydrates portion, the blood sample of diabetic volunteers were taken finger pricks at 0, 30, 60, 90, 120 and 180 minutes and normal volunteers 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 minutes and glycaemic index were calculated by standard formula. Results obtained in present study have suggested that all four test pizzas and chicken patty have very high glycaemic indices. It is therefore suggested that diabetic patients and high-risk families should not take all the test pizzas and chicken patty in their daily routine.
