The Glycemic Index (GI) is a valuable tool in nutrition that helps individuals make informed choices about the carbohydrates they consume. It measures how quickly and to what extent a particular carbohydrate-containing food raises blood glucose (sugar) levels after consumption. Here’s a closer look at the GI and how it can guide your dietary choices.

Key high-protein foods are meat and fish. They contain up to 25 g of protein per 100 g. A comparable amount is also found in dairy products. They also include sports protein (a product of milk processing) – which contains up to 70-80 g of protein per 100 g.

Fiber is a component of plants that cannot be digested by the human stomach but plays an important role in the metabolic process. It is essential both for digestion and for maintaining healthy blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Foods rich in fiber include seeds, green vegetables, whole grains, and pseudocereals.
