Glycemic Index of Sweets Complete Chart

Sweets are loved by people of all age groups. However, consuming too many sweets can have a negative impact on your health due to the high sugar content in them.

To make sure that you don’t exceed your daily recommended intake of sugar and still enjoy occasional treats, it is important to know about the glycemic index (GI) of different types of sweets.

The GI score assigned to each type of food indicates how quickly carbohydrates present in that particular food get digested into glucose which then enters into the bloodstream causing an increase in blood sugar levels after consumption.

Foods with higher GI scores cause dramatic spikes in blood glucose level while those with low GI take more time to break down and result in gradual rise or fall of glucose levels over a period when consumed regularly as part of one’s diet.

Most candy bars and chocolates have very high GIs ranging from 60-80; thus these may not be suitable for diabetics but can be enjoyed occasionally without any guilt provided other dietary components are taken care off like reducing fat intake etc..

On the other hand, fruits such as apples, oranges etc., generally ranked at 40-50 on glycemic index scale making them healthier options than most confectioneries out there today! If you crave something sweet yet healthy try some dark chocolate or dried fruit snacks instead! They will satisfy your taste buds while being much better for your body compared to processed sugary snacks available everywhere nowadays.

In conclusion, although almost all types foods containing carbohydrate tend to raise our blood sugar level however understanding what kind of sugars they contain along with their associated Glycemic Index Scores help us make wiser choices based on our individual dietary needs so that we can stay fit & healthy whilst enjoying occasional indulgences every now & then!
