What is Glycemic Index?
The glycemic index (or GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar (glucose) levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested, absorbed and metabolized and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar (glucose) levels. Low GI carbohydrates – the ones that produce smaller fluctuations in your blood glucose and insulin levels – is one of the secrets to long-term health, reducing your risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. It is also one of the keys to maintaining weight loss.
Foods with a GI value of less than 55 are classified as low GI foods. Foods with GI value from 55 to 70 are classified as intermediate GI foods and foods whose GI is greater than 70 are classified as high GI foods.

What is Glycemic Load?
The glycemic load (GL) of food is a number that estimates how much the food will raise a person’s blood glucose level after eating it. One unit of glycemic load approximates the effect of eating one gram of glucose. Glycemic load accounts for how much carbohydrate is in the food and how much each gram of carbohydrate in the food raises blood glucose levels. Glycemic load is based on the glycemic index (GI), and is calculated by multiplying the grams of available carbohydrate in the food by the food’s glycemic index, and then dividing by 100.

What are benefits of low GI foods?
For diabetes: All of the evidence-based recommendations for the management of diabetes from the major diabetes organizations around the world (the American Diabetes Association; Canadian Diabetes Association and Diabetes UK for example) now advise people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes to use the GI or GL as part of the nutritional management of their condition.
For gestational diabetes: In their recently released guidelines, Initiative on gestational diabetes mellitus: A pragmatic guide for diagnosis, management, and care, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics have recently recommended a focus on lower GI foods. “Low GI diets are associated with less frequent insulin use and lower birth weight than in control diets, suggesting that it is the most appropriate dietary intervention to be prescribed to patients with GDM,” they say.
For cholesterol: An analysis of 28 randomized controlled trials provided high-level evidence that high-fiber, low GI diets can significantly reduce total and LDL cholesterol levels, independent of weight loss.
For weight maintenance: The Diogenes study from Europe found that a moderately high protein, low GI diet is the best for longer-term weight management.

Can I use Diabliss Sugar for the entire family?
Yes, Diabliss Sugar and all Diabliss products can be used for the entire family and not just diabetics in the family.

What are differences between Diabliss Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners?
Artificial Sweeteners are chemically processed to give a sensation of sweetness in the tongue. All artificial sweeteners have bitter after taste. When used in Sweets or baked goods the foods normally exhibit poor texture. For example, when artificial sweeteners are used in cookies and other baked goods, the texture is poor and has a chalk like texture as there is no sugar to caramelize. On the other hand, Diabliss Sugar delivers all the benefits of cane sugar in terms of taste and texture but provides low blood sugar rise properties to foods.
There is also increasing evidence of serious health issues among long term consumers of artificial sweeteners.
