Glycemic Index Directory

The glycemic index is a way of measuring effects of sugar in foods on your blood sugar. High-glycemic foods raise your blood sugar higher than low-glycemic foods. Some high-glycemic foods include white breads or pasta, rice, and baked goods. Some low-glycemic foods are vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about how the glycemic index works, how to follow a low-glycemic diet, and much more.
