Glycemic Load

The Glycemic Load is a practical method of applying the Glycemic Index approach to dieting. It multiplies the percentage of a food’s Glycemic Index by the number of the net carbohydrates in a serving size. The Glycemic Load gives an estimate of how much the blood sugar levels would be raised by that food serving size.

The Glycemic Load formula is the number of carbohydrate grams in a serving, multiplied by the Glycemic Index, divided by 100. In theory, food with a Glycemic Load of one point would increase the glucose in blood sugar essentially one gram. Foods with a low Glycemic Load will usually have a low Glycemic Index which makes it harder to estimate the load from the index. Diets with low Glycemic Loads have been linked to lowering you risk of heart disease.
