THE GLYCEMIC INDEX

The glycemic index (GI) measures how carbohydrates affect and raise blood sugar on a scale of 0 to 100, pure sugar being 100. Designed by physicians Thomas Wolever and David Jenkins, the scale is divided into three categories - low, medium, and high. The lower the number, the better! With a GI value of 23, FiberPasta has one of the lowest GI pastas on the market.

FiberPasta is a healthy low-glycemic index pasta high in protein and fiber sugar free ideal for weight loss and for diabetic people


What affects the Glycemic Index?

In general, most of our meals consist of a variety of foods, which can affect blood sugar levels. This includes:

  • Preparing Food: The surface and texture of a food changes when it's chopped or pureed. 
  • Cooking method: The amount of water, heat, and time changes the structure of starches.
  • Fat and Fiber: More fat and fiber tend to slow digestion and the absorption of carbs.
  • Ripeness of Food: As fruits become riper, their carbs change to a simpler form, increasing their GI. 

When you're cooking with FiberPasta, make sure it's al dente! Overcooking any pasta will increase its GI.
