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,
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.
