Glycemic Index Calculator

All carbohydrate foods are not equal, in fact they behave quite differently in our bodies. The glycemic index or GI describes this difference by ranking foods based on how quickly the blood sugar levels will increase after ingestion of foods.

Classification GI Range Examples
Low GI 55 or less

Most fruits and vegetables (except potatoes, watermelon), grainy bread, brown rice, fish, egg.

Medium GI 56-69

Whole wheat products, basmati rice, sweet potato, table sugar, white rices.

High GI 70 or more

Flakes, rice krispies, baked potatoes, white bread, straight glucose (100).
