HIGH AND LOW

Best - - BEST FOR HEALTH -

Carbohydrates can be de­scribed ac­cord­ing to their gly­caemic in­dex (GI). This is a mea­sure­ment of how quickly they break down to be­come glu­cose in the body – high GI, like pure sugar, means this process is fast, whereas low GI, such as brown rice, would be slower. Low GI di­ets can be good for weight loss, as they of­fer sus­tained en­ergy re­lease and avoid sugar highs. They may be rec­om­mended for type 2 di­a­betes.
