The Glycaemic Index (G.I.) of a food is a measure of the effect that the food has on blood sugar levels. A low G.I. value will mean that the food will have a low impact on raising the blood glucose level. Conversely, a high G.I. will mean that the blood sugar levels are elevated in some cases into a danger zone that will result in the need for insulin.
It is recommended that by including carbohydrates which have a low G.I. in the diet, the effect will be more stable blood sugar levels. This will also decrease the possibility of over-eating once the blood sugar levels drop rapidly after the digestion of high G.I. carbohydrates - a phenomenum that can contribute to being overweight (see weight control).
Fruisana Fruit Sugar is classified as being low G.I. as it has a Glycaemic Index of 19, compared to glucose with a G.I. of 100. Table sugar (sucrose) G.I: 65.
Many type II diabetics have been enjoying the benefits of Fruisana Fruit Sugar in their diets for years. Sucrose and glucose, both found in common sugar, produce a rapid rise in blood sugar levels, which gives rise to the need for insulin. This means diabetics need to carefully control the amount and types of sugar that they consume on a daily basis. Fruisana Fruit Sugar does not cause this rapid rise in blood sugar levels because it is mainly metabolized within the liver. From there, having been used to form glucose, it is released slowly as and when the body needs energy.
It is recommended that, if you or your child is diabetic, an amount of up to 30-40g of Fruisana Fruit Sugar can be consumed in the daily diet in place of sucrose, reducing the blood sugar 'roller coaster' effect that eating too much sugar or glucose can create.1. If the person is overweight, or if there are unusual contributing factors, consult your doctor regarding the correct amount of Fruisana Fruit Sugar to use in the diet.
Fruisana Fruit Sugar can help slimming or weight control only as part of a calorie controlled diet.
