What is the glycemic index (GI)?
The glycemic index is a value assigned to foods based on how slowly or how quickly those foods cause increases in blood glucose levels.
Foods low on the glycemic index (GI) scale tend to release glucose slowly and steadily. Foods high on the glycemic index release glucose rapidly.
Low GI foods tend to foster weight loss, while foods high on the GI scale help with energy recovery after exercise, or to offset hypo- (or insufficient) glycemia.
