WHAT IS GI AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?

GI (glycaemic index) is a measure of how much carbohydrate-containing foods increase our blood glucose levels after consumption, as they are broken down into their constituent sugar molecules.

Pure glucose is the base measurement at 100.

The lower the GI, the lower the rise in blood glucose.
