Better Brown sugar is healthier as it is digested and absorbed at a slower rate, causing a smaller rise in blood sugar levels.
Firstly, the glycemic index (Gi), is a measure that ranks foods according to their effect on your blood sugar levels.
Foods with a low-Gi value are the preferred choice, as they are slowly digested and absorbed, causing a slower and smaller rise in blood sugar levels.
Glycemic Index measures carbohydrate quality – i.e. how much a carbohydrate will affect blood sugar.
It is a ranking of foods from 0 to 100 that tells us whether a carbohydrate food will raise blood sugar (glucose) levels significantly, moderately or just a little.
Low 55 or less
High70 or more
Carbohydrates with a low Gi value (55 or less) are more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolised and cause a lower and slower rise in blood glucose and, therefore usually, insulin levels.
By swapping at least one high Gi food for a Low Gi food and sugar at every meal, it is a simple and effective way to help in reducing the risk
