Some GI or sugar values may be inaccurate and should only be used for general comparison purposes!
**Celery has also been shown to be negative calories.
The GI list also shows the carbohydrate content for each item as this is related somewhat to the glycemic load for the GI diet. However it does not necessarily mean that food with a high carbohydrate content will automatically mean a high GI score. All foods on our GI tables are based on 100g (3.5 oz) of product. The portion size doesn't change the Glycemic Index value, but it does count towards the quantity of sugar (carbs) for the item; the bigger the portion the more sugar you would be consuming. This standard portion size simply enables you to make a sugar comparison with other products in the same group, and the different foods listed on other GI tables. This means you can see which foods are high or low in carbohydrate content.
