Healthy Living : Glycemic index


Have you heard of Glycemic index? It is an index of how carbohydrates affect your blood glucose level. The index is based off of pure glucose rating as 100. If a product has a high glycemic index, a score closer to 100, then it has a larger effect on your blood glucose level. A low index food, a number closer to 0, has a small effect on your blood glucose level. Of course glucose has a high GI and so does bake potato and white bread. Foods that have a low GI are peanuts, most fruits, and vegetables.
