Eat Informed – Glycemic Index

glycemic index

One of the basic rules for a healthy life is to avoid excesses, especially when it comes to food.
Not too much but also not too little of it, carbohydrates are important in nutrition. Being aware of and, even better, controlling your diet in relation to carbohydrates will improve your life. This is especially important for people with a family history of diabetes, already suffering from diabetes, or for women developing gestational diabetes (glucose intolerance during pregnancy).
You can find out more about this on the Glycemic Index page.

A low-GI food will release glucose more slowly and steadily, which leads to more suitable postprandial (after meal) blood glucose readings. A high-GI food causes a more rapid rise in blood sugar levels and is suitable for energy recovery after exercise or for a person experiencing hypoglycemia.

Health effects
Several lines of recent [1999] scientific evidence have shown that individuals who followed a low-GI diet over many years were at a significantly lower risk for developing both type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, and age-related macular degeneration than others.

A study from the University of Sydney in Australia suggests that having a breakfast of white bread and sugar-rich cereals, over time, may make a person susceptible to diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.

A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that age-related adult macular degeneration (AMD), which leads to blindness, is 42 percent higher among people with a high-GI diet, and concluded that eating a lower-GI diet would eliminate 20 percent of AMD cases.

Recent animal research provides compelling evidence that a high-GI carbohydrate diet is associated with increased risk of obesity. In humans, a recent study proves that low-glycemic index diets work better than low-fat or Atkins diets.

Also, a ‘low carbohydrate-high protein’ diet will increase over time the incidence of cardiovascular diseases, as shown in a study published in the British Medical Journal.

Facts:
“Some additives have been used for centuries; for example, preserving food by pickling (with vinegar), salting, as with bacon, preserving sweets or using sulfur dioxide as in some wines. With the advent of processed foods in the second half of the 20th century, many more additives have been introduced, of both natural and artificial origin.”
[wikipedia]

Some of them are harmless, many not so healthy and several are dangerous.
There is some controversy about adverse reactions to food additives, particularly in relation to their effects on children. Many people have experienced various negative reactions to food additives. Certain groups may be more susceptible to adverse effects, such as asthma sufferers, chemically sensitive and allergic individuals or hyperactive children.

Our own food additives database compilation can be seen here: Food additives and, of course, the page is open to comments, so, you can help us improve our database by adding comments.
