What is the glycaemic index?
Glycaemic Index: (The glycaemic index (GI) tells us whether a food raises blood glucose levels quickly, moderately or slowly.Different carbohydrates are digested and absorbed at different rates, and GI is a ranking of how quickly each carbohydrate-based food and drink makes blood glucose levels rise after eating them. The GI index runs from 0–100 and usually uses glucose, which has a GI of 100, as the reference. Slowly absorbed carbohydrates have a low GI rating (55 or below). Low-GI foods can particularly help manage glucose levels.)
