Low GI Bread

For the purpose of this post, I have quoted extensive from what I have gathered from the internet on information about Low GI bread.

Gi stands for Glycaemic Index, a way of ranking individual foods from 1 to 100 according to the effect they have on blood sugar levels – that is, how quickly they are digested. Foods with a low Gi ranking (1 to 55) cause a slow, steady rise in blood sugar levels reducing food cravings, making you feel full for a longer period of time.

Research from leading UK universities into the impact following a Low Gi diet can have, suggests that foods with a low Gi help people control their blood sugar levels and may contribute to weight loss.

Switching from ordinary bread to low Gi bread reduces the risk of chronic disease and developing type 2 diabetes. That is the message of new scientific research, published by Oxford Brookes University.

Apart from the normal Low GI bread which some people may find it plain, our chef has recently came up with an improved recipe by adding almond seeds and california raisins into the dough.
