With all the media hype about sugar addition there is a huge need for recipes that reduce the amount of sugar that easily enters the blood stream. I'd love to see recipes in that category on your website.

Most of the foods featured on our website are low glycemic foods. As background, the Glycemic Index (GI) is a numerical scale used to indicate how fast and how high a particular food can raise our blood glucose (blood sugar) level. A food with a low GI will typically prompt a moderate rise in blood glucose, while a food with a high GI may cause our blood glucose level to increase above the optimal level. Individuals who have problems with maintaining proper blood sugar levels should restrict their selection to foods with a GI of 40 or less most of the time. You will find a glycemic index value for each of the foods featured on our website (in the nutrient profile for each food), so you can easily see which foods you should choose the majority of the time.

We have an in-depth article on this topic that we'd like to share with you for more background. Also, each of the foods featured on our website specifically indicate their glycemic value in the nutrient profile chart found in each food article. What is glycemic index?
