The Glycemic Index

This index measures how much your blood glucose increases in the two or three hours after eating. The glycemic index is about foods high in carbohydrates. Glycemic Load of Carb Foods - GI in Food Serving. Glycemic Load is the application of the glycemic index to a standard serving of food.

Glycemic Load of Carb Foods - GI in Food Serving

Remember, the glycemic index (GI) of a food is not based on commonly consumed portion-sizes of foods. Instead, GI is measured by giving volunteers a portion size sufficient to contain 50g of useable carbs. Therefore the portion size of each GI-tested food will vary according to how much carbohydrate it contains. For example, carrots contain only about 7 percent carbs, so the test-portion of carrots eaten by the test-volunteer will be huge - about 1.5 pounds. GI News.
