Low Glycemic Index

In recent years scientific evidence has emerged to support the connection between a low glycemic diet and a reduced risk of chronic diseases such as obesity and diabetes.

Supporting this, the Glycemic Index ranging from 0 to 100, is a method used to measure the extent to which carbohydrates impact blood glucose levels. In seeking a weight controlled or healthier diet, consumers don’t need to completely avoid all sugars and carbohydrates. Carefully selected sweetening ingredients such as fructose can offer a sweet taste while still achieving a low GI.

Galam understands the importance of low glycemic nutrition and offers a portfolio of ingredients that enables the manufacture of low GI products. Our long-established Fruitose® brand has a GI of 20, the lowest GI among natural sweeteners. This benefit is supported by the recently approved EU health claim that fructose leads to a lower blood glucose rise.
