Louise, the conversation about the glycaemic index has evolved over the years into the conversation about low carb, which is why you don’t hear so much about it these days.

The GI is a list showing how much and how fast glucose and insulin gets released when we eat particular carbohydrates; for example, pasta as compared to bread.

If someone is eating low carb they are also eating low GI. Part of the value of eating low carb is less insulin is released, and that’s always a good thing.
