Glycemic load

What is Glycemic Load?

Glycemic load is a measure that quantifies the overall effect of carbohydrates in food on blood sugar levels. It takes into account both the quantity of carbohydrates in a food and their impact on blood sugar levels. A high glycemic load indicates that food is more likely to cause a rapid rise in blood sugar levels, while a low glycemic load suggests a slower and steadier increase in blood sugar levels. Glycemic load is commonly used in diet and nutrition to manage blood sugar levels, particularly in individuals with diabetes or those who are following a low-carbohydrate diet.
