Welcome to our new post. In this post, we will provide you with the Low Glycemic Index Food List. You can find the Low Glycemic Index Food List which you can also download in PDF format by the end of this post.
Glycemic Index (GI)
The glycemic index is a value assigned to foods based on how quickly and how high those foods cause increases in blood glucose levels. Foods low on the glycemic index (GI) scale tend to release glucose slowly and steadily. Foods that are 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 offset hypo- (or insufficient) glycemia. Long-distance runners would tend to favor foods high on the glycemic index, while people with pre-or full-blown diabetes would need to concentrate on low GI foods.
