- Glycemic index information
The glycemic index (GI) is a number associated with a particular type of food that indicates the food's effect on a person's blood glucose (also called blood sugar) level. A value of 100 represents the standard, an equivalent amount of pure glucose.
The GI is useful for understanding how the body breaks down carbohydrates. Although the food may contain fats and other components that contribute to the total rise in blood sugar, these effects are not reflected in the GI.
** Weight Loss Benefit of a Low GI Diet
If you need to lose weight and keep it off, incorporating low GI, higher protein foods into your diet can help you achieve this. Lowering the GI of the diet is simply a matter of swapping low GI carbs for those that are high GI.
NOTE: The glycemic response is different from one person to another, and also in the same person from day to day, depending on blood glucose levels, insulin resistance, and other factors.
