Quote of the Day

Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

The Glycemic Index, is a system that measures the speed at which a particular carbohydrate raises blood sugar, after that food is eaten. Carbohydrate foods are those that contain simple sugars (glucose) and are found in plant foods and milk products.

The rating system is from 0 to 100. Foods that cause a dramatic rise in blood sugar, and quickly absorbed, are given a rating of 70 to 100. Foods that cause a moderate rise in blood sugar, and time to be absorbed are given a 55 to 70 rating. Foods that take the longest time to raise the blood sugar and be absorbed, are given a rating of less than 55. Sugar is given a value of 100, and each food is compared to sugar to receive its rating.
