So, what's the buzz around low GI foods?

 

Eating low-GI foods means you avoid those spikes and dramatic falls in blood-glucose so you get a much steadier stream of energy. You, therefore, reduce your risk of heart disease and other chronic diseases that are implicated by those blood-glucose fluctuations.

 

Additionally, by eating low GI foods you feel fuller for longer and are, therefore, not as likely to go searching for snacks every two hours!

High GI foods have a glycemic index of more than 70, low GI foods have a glycemic index of less than 55 and medium GI foods are in between.

 

The GI of mushrooms stands at a miniscule 10 making fresh mushrooms not  just a good, but an excellent nutritional choice when embarking on a healthy lifestyle!
