Glycemic index is a specific number that ranks foods based on how quickly they're digested and raises blood glucose levels. Glycemic load is the amount of carbohydrates in a food multiplied by glycemic index. Glycemic index and glycemic load are separate measurements, so it's possible that a food's serving size can impact glycemic load while glycemic index remains the same.
When I change serving sizes, why does glycemic index remain the same on certain foods, while glycemic load changes? Print
