Glycemic Index

Food List

The Glycemic Index is a scale which helps to rank carbohydrate- rich foods, depending on how they affect blood glucose levels.  Glycemic Index uses a scale of 0 to 100, with higher values given to foods that cause the most rapid rise in blood sugar.  Pure glucose serves as a reference point, and is given a Glycemic Index (GI) of 100.

In simple terms, GI measures how much your blood sugar level increases in a span of 2 - 3 hours after having food.  The lower a food's glycemic index or glycemic load, the less it affects blood sugar and insulin levels.
