Low Glycemic Food and What Makes It Low

What Makes a Food Low Glycemic?

Foods with little to no carbohydrates, like animal protein, cheese and fats, will have a glycemic index at zero or very near to zero.  The less easily digested sugars and starches a food has, the less likely it is to elevate blood sugar.  Fiber, which is considered a carbohydrate, passes in the system undigested, leaving the body with no impact on blood sugar.  Fiber works in the body to help slow the absorption of digestible carbohydrates.
