A Nourished by Science poster: download your copy below.
The glycemic index (GI) and glycemic load (GL) of a food are measures of the blood sugar response to that food.
Replacing high-GI/GL foods with low-GI/GL foods is one way to lower the blood sugar response to a meal.
Below, you can download a free copy of a high-resolution poster showing the GI and GL of many common foods.
For more information about the glycemic index and the glycemic load, please see our dedicated blog post and video about the topic.
The poster offered here shows information about the glycemic index and glycemic load of common foods. It does not constitute medical advice, and – as always – we recommend consulting with a trained healthcare professional before making any changes to your diet.
All glycemic index and glycemic load data on the poster are based on:
Atkinson FS, Brand-Miller JC, Foster-Powell K, Buyken AE, and Goletzke J. International tables of glycemic index and glycemic load values in 2021: a systematic review. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2021; 114: 1625-32.
Data used for the poster were generated using 50g of pure glucose in water as the reference food. Data using other reference foods were not considered for the poster.
