The Truth About Blood Sugar And Carbohydrates

The Truth About Blood Sugar And Carbohydrates


Do you know what foods are best for your blood
sugar? I’m Erin White and this is a dailyRx Feature. Carbohydrates get a bad rap when
it comes to their nutritional contributions. When making healthy choices about carbohydrates,
one of the most helpful things to understand is the food’s glycemic index. A food’s glycemic
index is a score that tells you just how much a certain food will increase your blood sugar,
compared to how much straight sugar will increase it. A food with a high score will increase
your blood sugar faster and higher than a food with a low score. For example, a plain
white baguette has a glycemic index of 95, which is almost like eating pure sugar as
far as your body’s blood sugar response is concerned. In contrast, hummus has a glycemic
index of 6. Talk to your nutritionist to find out low glycemic foods that fit your taste
and lifestyle. For dailyRX Tv, I’m Erin White.
