The Glysemic Index Food List
The Glycemic Index (GI) is a numerical scale used to indicate how fast
and how high a particular food can raise our blood glucose (blood
sugar) level. A food with a low GI will typically prompt a moderate
rise in blood glucose, while a food with a high GI may cause our blood
glucose level to increase above the optimal level.
The GI is especially useful to people with diabetes who want to plan
their diets to minimize the incidence of high blood glucose, or spikes.
It measures how much of a rise in circulating blood sugar a
carbohydrate triggers. The lower the number the less effect it has.
The numbers are percentages with respect to a reference food. They are
given here with respect to glucose.
We don’t believe in diets. But we do believe in good healthy choice
when it comes to foods.
