the Glycemic index (GI) - specific indicator, which classifies products on the basis of the reaction of the organism to increase the level of glucose in the blood in response to their consumption. Per unit estimates, it is customary to use the GI of glucose (100) or white bread. Products are divided into three groups, low (up to 40), medium (up to 70) and high (more than 70) GI. For example, the first group includes cereals, dairy products, legumes, some fruits, etc. To the second - sugar, tropical fruits, soft drinks. The third - potatoes, bread, cereals. In each group the GI of different foods and drinks also varies. We consider in more detail some non-alcoholic drinks of the middle group.

the Glycemic index coffee

the more caffeine the coffee contains, the higher its GI. Methods of cooking also influence this indicator. For example, espresso contains GI two times lower than freshly brewed from ground beans. The best way to drink coffee without caffeine content (freeze-dried), his GI is very low. Milk to add to coffee skim, it is recommended not to overload the GI. Because GI all components of the prepared coffee is added, then sugar should be abandoned. the Glycemic index of black coffee with sugar 60.

the Glycemic index cocoa

When compared with coffee, cocoa powder KI below and lies in the range - 20. With this indicator you can safely add in cocoa products with a high GI. For example, sugar and whole milk. For comparison, freshly-ground coffee without sugar has a GI equal to 52, and the rate of glycemic index cocoa with milk - just 40.

the Glycemic index kvass

it is Known that the brew is prepared on the basis of bread, yeast and sugar. In total, the glycemic index of the brew is obtained in the range of 45. Of course, this notional figure, since the structure and principle of preparation of the brew may vary.

Canned brew of shops has a GUY twice home. And if you ferment sugar to replace it with fructose, use only crumbs of rye bread, you get delicious diet drink.

the Glycemic index water

the Only product with an index of GI equal to zero is still pure water. It is not only possible, but it is recommended to drink 1.5 liters a day. Of course, that on its basis it is possible to cook foods with a high GI for averaging the indicator. For example: tea, coffee and cocoa, made with water will have a lower GI than milk.
