Índice glucémico

Índice glucémico

El cuerpo descompone la mayoría de los carbohidratos de los alimentos que comemos y los convierte en un tipo de azúcar llamado “glucosa”. La glucosa es la principal fuente de combustible para nuestras células. La glucosa viaja en el torrente sanguíneo para llegar hasta las células. Después de comer, la glucosa de los alimentos ingresa en el torrente sanguíneo. Esto puede ocurrir rápidamente, lentamente o a una velocidad intermedia. Todo depende del tipo de hidrato de carbono y del alimento que lo contiene. El índice glucémico es una manera de medir la rapidez con que ocurre esto y de qué manera un alimento afecta los niveles de glucosa. Los alimentos con un índice más elevado aumentan el azúcar en la sangre con más rapidez que los alimentos con índices glucémicos más bajos.
