GI Value For Bread

Breads and The Glycemic Index (GI)

Most types of bread are not low-GI foods. The best type of bread, and low on the glycemic index, is "whole grain" with about 2g of fiber per slice. Breads that are 100 percent stone-ground are also low-GI bread. Stone-ground flour is coarser and retains more of the natural bran coating, so you digest it more slowly.

Bread snacks and muffins typically are high-GI, and for best glycemic response should be eaten in moderation. In general, the less dense and "fluffier" the bread, the greater the adverse effect on blood glucose levels. Indeed, Western diets rich in low-fiber white flour fluffy breads are believed to be a contributory factor to, impaired glucose tolerance, insulin insensitivity and numerous digestive disorders.
