The GI is a rating system for foods containing carbohydrates. It shows how quickly each food affects your blood sugar (glucose) level when that food is eaten on its own.

Low or medium GI foods are broken down more slowly and cause a gradual rise in blood sugar levels over time.

Other low GI foods include:

  • Pulses
  • Wholegrain foods, such as porridge oats.

Some low GI foods, such as wholegrain foods, fruit, vegetables, beans and lentils, are foods we should eat as part of a healthy, balanced diet.
