Low Glycemic Foods Give You More Energy

November 1, 2017

cookiebox.jpgSwings in your blood sugar levels can make you feel lousy. And the highs and lows can increase your risk for serious health problems such as type 2 Diabetes, stroke and heart disease. By adopting a diet comprised of mostly low GI foods, you can gain better blood-sugar control, maintain higher energy levels, and feel better. Low GI foods are broken down slowly, trickling glucose into your system over time, providing a stable supply of energy.


Not sure what is a low GI food - and how it ranks on the Glycemic Index (GI)? Our Guide to a Low Glycemic Diet for Better Blood Glucose Control provides a broad list of low GI foods and their GI values to help you make informed dietary choices at every meal.

Fifty50 Foods has the most extensive variety of certified branded low GI foods. Our products range from peanut butters and fruit spreads to candies and cookies to breakfast items like syrup and oatmeal to baking items like pie crusts, crystalline fructose – with more items being developed. The company’s new packaging and labeling helps you more easily identify the best Low-Glycemic choices so you can enjoy the flavorful foods you love. 

Want to keep your energy up and maintain steady blood sugar levels? Here’s how to eat low GI foods throughout your day:

Breakfast: For a hearty and satisfying breakfast, try this Baked Zucchini Frittata that is high in protein and low on the Glycemic Index. Want something that is quick and grab-and- go? Then these delicious Oat Bran Applesauce Muffins are for you. They also make a great snack.

Lunch: How does a tasty salad loaded with vitamins and fiber sound? This Spinach Salad with Poppy Seeds and Pine Nuts will leave you feeling full longer. Add a cup of Cream of Carrot and Celery Soup for creamy goodness. Eating low GI foods doesn’t mean sacrificing your favorites.

Dinner: Better than takeout, this Weeknight Oriental Chicken will replace your local delivery favorite. For a vegetarian option, try Smashed Tomatoes over Penne that is zesty, healthy and easy to prepare.

Dessert: Incorporating low GI foods into your diet doesn’t mean you have to give up your sweet tooth. You’d never guess this Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Cake is Low-GI since it is so rich and flavorful.

Many other low glycemic recipes can be found in the Create section of our web site.
