Some rice cakes are really not a good choice at all. Rice is a high glycemic index grain, even when it's whole grain (brown), so it can spike blood sugar levels. What's more, some brands add sugar or corn syrup to their rice cakes. If you want to try rice cakes as a snack, top them with some peanut butter, cream cheese or another spread that contains fat and protein and test your blood glucose two hours later. You may find that you can have rice cakes without a problem.
