“The glycemic index (GI) of foods is the accurate effect that foods have on our blood sugar levels. It was originally developed to help diabetics control their blood sugar levels. The GI can benefit regular exercisers, athletes, and you.

It is the ranking of foods from 0 to 100 based on their immediate effect on blood sugar levels, a measure of the speed at which you digest food and convert it into glucose. Simply put, the faster the rise in blood glucose, the higher the rating on the index.

Blood sugar and insulin levels rise every time you eat something containing carbohydrates. How high they rise and how fast depend on the food.
