This small guide lists the glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) values for hundreds of foods and beverages. The information is presented in three different ways: alphabetically, by food categories, and by the GI ranking of low/moderate/high. Easy to manipulate, this guide is a handy reference for shopping and meal planning.
In this small guide, the best 100 low GI foods are presented in alphabetical order. In addition to their “vitals” (GI and GL values, carbohydrate, protein, fat content), their “virtues” (vitamin, mineral, fiber content, ease of preparation) are also addressed. Read this guide cover to cover, or just look under a letter of the alphabet for a specific food to see if it was chosen for this selective list.
