Glycemic Index Analysis

Glycemic index (GI) is a rating system for evaluating how different foods affect blood sugar levels. This system has been used to select foods and create diets that aim to control obesity, manage diabetes, etc.

Carbohydrate foods that breakdown quickly during digestion have high glycemic indexes. Their blood sugar response is fast and high. Carbohydrates that breakdown slowly, releasing glucose gradually into the blood stream, have low glycemic indexes.

NutriGenie software has the GI ratings (low, medium and high) for over 2,500 most common foods. Users can assign and modify the ratings for any foods in the NutriGenie database or in their own database. With a single command, the user can see all foods in the appropriate GI category for selection.

Our software also analyzes the caloric distribution of user's diet based on GI ratings. The user can immediately see what percentage of his diet is from high, medium or low GI foods.

This diet consists of mainly high GI foods: 72% of its calories come from high GI food items, 9% and 1% from low and medium GI foods, respectively. Eighteen percent of calories come from unrated foods.
