High GI foods create a “spike” and “crash” in energy levels.
High GI foods like Sport Beans do create a rapid rise in blood sugar, providing quick energy. However, there is no actual “crash” that occurs – blood sugar levels simply return to normal.
- Consumption of all carbohydrates results in a rise in circulating levels of sugar.
- The body handles this rise by releasing insulin, which ushers sugars into the body’s cells returning levels to normal.
