*High fat content will retard the rate of absorption of Carbohydrate into the body.

To measure the effects of various foods on blood sugar, scientists have developed the glycemic index (GI). This index shows the rate at which a carbohydrate will break down and enter the bloodstream as sugar (glucose). For most people, the lower the food's GI, the better response in terms of appetite control and sustained energy levels.

When the blood sugar in the bloodstream increases faster than insulin can reduce it, the excess is converted to FAT.

The higher the food on the glycemic index, the faster the burst of energy and the sooner the letdown. With decreasing glycemic index, foods provide long term energy.

Some of the factors that affect the GI are the food's digestibility, fiber content, sugar content, type of sugar and how the food is prepared. Raw carbohydrates typically have a lower GI than food that have been cooked.

The GI should help individuals make better carbohydrate selections. Although low-glycemic fruits and vegetables are the best choice , higher-glycemic carbohydrates can be combined with protein and fat to produce a lower glycemic response. This is why balance bars and drink mixes work well in keeping energy levels up. Their balance of carbohydrate, protein and fat helps provide a favorable glycemic response.
