GI or Glycemic Index of a food is the rise in blood sugar that is seen after consuming it. It is an important marker of how our blood sugar will respond to the meal. Having high GI foods for a prolonged period of time can predispose one to Diabetes and all other associated co-morbidities. It is also associated with dependant behaviour patterns wherein after consuming a high GI meal, the urge to consume more and more persists. This is why after having one chocolate, you feel like eating more. This overall creates a negative impact on health as well as eating behaviours which can get difficult to manage. To live longer and better, it is important we consume meals and foods with low GI, like this health package. The meal as a whole will have a GI of below 100 per serve, as compared to traditional Indian diets which have a GI of anywhere between 300-500.
