Glycemic Index - Glycemic Effects of Foods The glycemic effect is a measure of the response of blood sugar (glucose) concentration and insulin to the carbohydrate in a food. The glycemic effect of a food is measured by having a person eat a food and then testing the blood to see: • How fast and how high the blood sugar level increases • How quickly the blood sugar level returns to normal Foods that contain carbohydrates that have a low-glycemic effect produce a slow steady rise in blood sugar. The carbohydrate in foods with a high-glycemic effect causes a rapid rise in blood sugar. The Glycemic Index is a rating system for the glycemic effects of foods. The highest possible Glycemic Index score for a food is 100. Some foods elevate blood sugar and insulin levels faster and higher than other foods. Many factors, such as the amount of fiber in a food and how the food is cooked, work together to determine a food’s glycemic effect in the body. In addition, a food’s glycemic effect differs when it is eaten alone versus when the food is eaten with other foods that contain protein and fat.
