Glycemic Index Food List - Low Glycemic Index Foods
Last Update - 7th August 2015
The Glycemic Index Food List
or GI Food List
(also called Glycaemic Index Food List
) measures the "effect of food on blood glucose levels". It is a rank list index for foods based on the how quickly the blood sugar levels will increase after ingestion. A low glycemic food
gives a slow increase in blood sugar levels. A high glycemic index food gives a more rapid rise in blood sugar levels. Pure glucose is the food with the highest glycemic index of 100. All other foods have a lower GI and are ranked in relation to glucose.

relates the GI to the amount of carbohydate eaten in a normal serving or in 100 grams. For more information about a low GI diet see the Glycemic Index Glossary
