Watch out for the Glycemic Index – it is very, very misleading.
- glycemic index is a useful idea only for whole or low-processed foods that are without added or concentrated sugar, corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) or other significant sources of fructose (e.g. agave syrup, honey).
- even then, Glycemic Load is a much more useful concept
- Keeping in perspective – Unless you have a particular health issue involving fructose, fructose for most people is only a problem at higher intake – not in the amounts you would get in several servings per day of whole, unprocessed fruits and/or intakes of sugar within the guidelines of the UN, the American College of Cardiology and the UK.
