The findings showed a slower rise of blood sugar following consumption of the calamansi juice when compared to the reference drink.
In their concluding remarks, they noted “the GI for the test drink (calamansi) was estimated as 37, showing that it has a low potential for raising blood glucose levels”.
Other low GI foods include:
- Some fruit and vegetables
- Wholegrain foods, such as porridge oats.
“Some low GI foods, such as wholegrain foods, fruit, vegetables, beans and lentils, are foods we should eat as part of a healthy, balanced diet,” says the NHS.
