Looking to lose weight or control blood sugar level?
Glycemica has the biggest food database available, with over 1000+ foods to help you know the glycemic index and load values of everything you eat.
The glycemic index (GI) is a value used to measure how much specific foods increase blood sugar levels. Foods are classified as low, medium, or high glycemic foods and ranked on a scale of 0–100. The lower the GI of a specific food, the less it may affect your blood sugar levels.
Here are the three GI ratings:
■ Low: 55 or less
■ Medium: 56–69
■ High: 70 or above
Foods high in refined carbs and sugar are digested more quickly and often have a high GI, while foods high in protein, fat, or fiber typically have a low GI.
Foods that contain no carbs are not assigned a GI and include meat, fish, poultry, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, and oils. Other factors that affect the GI of a food include the ripeness, cooking method, type of sugar it contains, and the amount of processing it has undergone.
Keep in mind that the glycemic index is different from the glycemic load (GL).
Unlike the GI, which doesn’t take into account the amount of food eaten, the GL factors in the number of carbs in a serving of a food to determine how it may affect blood sugar levels. For this reason, it’s important to take both the glycemic index and glycemic load into consideration when selecting foods to help support healthy blood sugar levels.
