What is the GI Index?
The glycaemic index or GI is a measure of the effects of carbohydrates in food on blood sugar levels. It estimates how much each gram of available carbohydrate (total carbohydrate minus fibre) in a food raises a person’s blood glucose level following consumption of the food, relative to consumption of glucose. Glucose has a glycaemic index of 100, by definition, and other foods have a lower glycaemic index.
