To determine the glycemic index of a certain food, volunteers are asked to fast overnight, submit to a referencing blood sample, then injest pure glucose with a GI of 100. Intervaled blood samples are taken and blood sugar readings graphed. Subsequently the fasting is repeated and the test food is given to the volunteer following the primary sample. Another graph is created charting changes in blood sugar. The difference between the graphs of the test food and the pure glucose is calculated as a percentage.
These are carbohydrate-containing foods with a low glycemic index, try to include several of these in each meal or snack that you eat.
|Type of Food||Name of Food||Glycemic Index|
|Legume||Yellow Split Peas||32|
|Dairy||Low-fat Fruit Yogurt||33|
