Carbohydrates and Glycaemic Index (GI)

Carbohydrates and Glycaemic Index (GI)

A food’s glycaemic index indicates the rate at which the carbohydrate in that food is digested by the body. In high GI foods, carbohydrate is digested and absorbed into the blood quickly, causing your blood glucose (sugar) level to rise rapidly. In low GI foods, carbohydrate is digested slowly resulting in a more gradual rise in blood glucose levels.
