Glycemic response is influenced by the amount of food we eat, the type of food we eat, and how the food we eat is processed or prepared. An example of this is: a boiled potato will spike glucose levels in milliseconds. Glycemic Load considers both the glycemic index and the amount of carbohydrate in a food. The carbohydrate in carrots, for example, has a high Glycemic Index (G.I.).
Glycemic Load measures the effect of foods on blood glucose levels. High Glycemic Load numbers mean faster metabolism of energy and more chance of cravings.The Glycemic Index has a scale of 0 to 100, with higher values given to foods that cause the most rapid rise in blood sugar. Pure glucose serves as a reference point, and is given a G.I. of 100. Because testing is expensive, many food processors are unwilling to fund the cost of testing their foods for G.I. levels.
