WHY A LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX?
What is the glycemic Index?
The glycemic index (GI) is the speed with which glycemia– the concentration of glucose in the blood – increases following the intake of food: the index is 100 for glucose. Misura has replaced flour starch with resistant starch, a fibre extracted from maize, for a mouthwatering biscuit with an index lower than 50. Product analyzed by the Department of Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Pavia.
