When reading a glycemic index chart, what should you pay attention to?The Glycemic index measures how quickly a food raises blood sugar levels. Food is ranked from zero to 100 according to this measure. The blood sugar level rises rapidly after eating foods high in glycemic index, also known as GI. It is often the case - but not always - that these foods with high GI scores are high in sugars and carbohydrates.
Sample Glycemic Index foods in breakfast:

How much glycemic index does each fruit have?
Watermelon has the highest GI of any raw fruit not dried or canned, with an average of 72 and some samples testing as high as 80. GI values of 70 are also possible with well-ripened cantaloupes. There are a number of fruits that qualify as moderately high in GI, including Pineapple, Cherries.
A glycemic index chart is a powerful tool that can help you make healthier food choices. The chart ranks foods according to their effect on blood sugar levels. Foods with a high glycemic index score raise blood sugar levels more than foods with a low glycemic index score. Therefore, the glycemic index can be used as a guide to choosing foods that will help you maintain healthy blood sugar levels. You can let us know you like it by giving us a big thumbs up.
