What is the Glycemic Index- A system for classifying carbohydrates. The glycemic index ranks foods on how blood sugar levels are affected post-consumption. ( after one eats) The harder your body has to work to convert the carbohydrate into glucose means that there is a delay on the amount of sugar that can be found in the blood. This delay in acquiring the sugar from foods eaten is suggestive of food with lower glycemic number.
