Avoiding "sugary" foods is a great start to a healthier you. But some foods (like French fries, breads, and cereals) quickly convert to sugar during digestion.
Knowing the glycemic values of the foods you eat puts you right on the cutting edge of your own healthcare. Glycemic values Glycemic index (GI) and Glycemic load (GL)] show us how our bodies respond to different foods. This response is at the heart of an endless list of diseases -- and can guide us on a new path to optimum health.
The World Health Organization endorses using glycemic values in selecting foods, but many health professionals consider GI and GL too complicated to use in their clinical practice....It is easier to prescribe a pill for each symptom than to teach patients about this life-changing information.
This translates into not listing GI and GL values on our packaged food products and not including these important values in our national nutrient database files.
So it is up to the consumer to figure it out on their own.
