PASTA PICK ME UP

Cotswold Life - - COTSWOLD WELLBEING -

New re­search from St Michael’s Hospi­tal in Canada sug­gests that pasta may not be so bad for us after all. Un­like most re­fined car­bo­hy­drates, which are rapidly ab­sorbed into the blood­stream, pasta has a low glycemic in­dex, mean­ing it causes smaller in­creases in blood sugar lev­els than foods with a high glycemic in­dex. The study said that when eaten as part of a healthy diet, pasta has no ad­verse ef­fects.
