Get to Know the Glycemic Index

The glycemic index is a way to measure how high and how quickly carbohydrate-containing foods raise blood sugar levels after eating. The highest value is 100 – (pure glucose).

High GI foods are rapidly digested and absorbed, and cause rapid changes in blood sugar levels.

Low GI foods are digested more slowly and minimize spikes in blood sugar and insulin levels.

Want to know more about lowering your blood sugar levels?
