What does Low Glycemic Index mean?
Let's get scientific for a second. Glycemic Index (GI) is a measure of the effect of carbohydrates on blood sugar levels. Carbohydrates that break down quickly during digestion release glucose (sugar) rapidly into the bloodstream and have a high GI, while carbohydrates that break down more slowly release glucose more gradually into the bloodstream and have a low GI. A lower GI (approximately 55 or less) suggests slower rates of digestion and absorption of the foods' carbohydrates. What does that mean to you? Simply put, Balance Bar products will provide lasting, sustained energy.
What is the difference between Total Carbohydrates and Net Carbohydrates?
Total Carbohydrates represent the actual amount of carbs contained in a product. Net carbohydrates are calculated by taking the total number of carbohydrates and subtracting fiber and sugar alcohols. The number that is left respresents that carbs that impact your blood sugar levels.
