Glycemic Load For Cereals

Note: Glycemic Load (GL) is a useful dietary tool for patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, people with insulin resistance, or anyone who wishes to improve their blood glucose management by avoiding sugar "spikes" caused by sudden surges in blood sugar after eating high-GI foods.

Glycemic Load Measures Impact of Food Servings on Blood Glucose

While the glycemic index (GI) measures glycemic response after consuming a standard amount (50g) of useable carbohydrate from a particular food, the glycemic load (GL) ranks foods according to how much carbohydrate is in a regular serving of the food in question.

How to Calculate Glycemic Load

To determine the glycemic load (GL) for a particular food, use this formula:

GL = (GI Value x carbohydrate per serving) divided by 100

Note: If a particular food has Glycemic Load (GL) of zero, usually this is because the food contains little or no carbs (eg. meat, fish, cheese, eggs etc.). Where very few variations of a food type are listed, this is because very few variations have been "tested" to determine their GI value.

GI and Weight Control

One aim of Dr Atkins diet and other ketogenic diets, was the reduction of refined carbohydrate in the daily diet, in order to reduce weight and improve insulin function. GI diets go one step further - they provide only healthy carbohydrate, so you lose weight and eat only nutrient-dense carbs.
