The GI is a measure of how quickly blood glucose levels (blood sugar) rise after eating a certain food. The effects different foods have on these levels vary considerably. The GI estimates how much each gram of available carbohydrates (total carbohydrate minus fiber) in a food raises a person’s blood sugar following consumption of the food, compared to the consumption of pure glucose. Glucose has a GI of 100. The Glycemic Load of a food takes into account the amount of carbohydrate actually consumed. It is factored in by multiplying the GI of the food in question by the carbohydrate contend of the actual serving.
While the GI can only be used as a guide, it is a great tool to use when choosing what to eat. Realizing that each body is different, foods can vary depending on cooking, ripeness, processing ect. is a must. For example a potato can range from a moderate GI to a very high GI depending on the variety.
A Low GI would have a number of 55 or less, Medium 56-69 and High 70 and above. Remember, pure glucose has the highest value of 100, so the higher the number the closer to the same reaction as eating pure glucose you are.
