GI Value For Starchy Foods

Starches and The Glycemic Index (GI)

Starches tend to have a higher-GI value, although not all starches are high-GI. For example, most pastas have a medium GI-value, brown or basmati rice are low-GI, while boiled potatoes have a medium rating on the glycemic index (GI). Adding olive oil or lemon juice helps to reduce the glycemic value of starchy foods. Portion control also helps to minimize the effect of starchy food on blood glucose levels.

Nevertheless, starches do typically have an adverse effect on blood sugar and should be eaten in moderation. See also GI Diet Advice About Potatoes, GI Diet Guide to Pasta

Excessive levels of glucose in the bloodstream are associated with numerous metabolic health problems, including: obesity, insulin insensitivity, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance syndrome and heart disease.

As far as food is concerned, the best way to maintain optimal control over your blood glucose is to choose starchy carbohydrate foods with a lower GI value.
