Low Glycemic Juices

SCIENCE PROVES THAT juicing has powerful health benefits, but If you’ve stopped drinking juice because you’re worried about blood sugar, refill your juice glass and raise a toast: Lower glycemic index juices exist! Juices that are vegetable based with very little fruits added in them.

Some years ago, a glass of juice (usually orange) was an essential part of the breakfast lineup.
Then, things changed. People figured out that when you eat an orange, you’re getting the juice of just that one orange — two or three ounces at most. But it takes about three oranges to make one modest cup (eight ounces) of orange juice, and that’s three times the sugar. The sugar in the Orange fruit.

Dietary experts began seeing a correlation between high fruit juice consumption and high blood sugar, and started recommending people to step away from the juice and stick to the fruit — the whole fruit.

If you Compare it  to whole fruit, fruit juice has a   lot high glycemic index, meaning that drinking it causes a rapid surge in blood sugar. This can be bad news for people with type 2 diabetes mellitus — and also a concern for those who are watching their carbs and trying to stay healthy.

The glycemic index (GI) is a number that indicates how rapidly a food or beverage is broken down (metabolized) and converted into blood sugar — glucose. Refined sugar and starches can have a high GI, whereas complex carbs and foods rich in fiber, protein and fat have lower numbers on the scale.

To understand a food’s complete effect on blood sugar, you need to know both how quickly the food makes glucose enter the bloodstream, and how much glucose it will deliver. A separate value called glycemic load does that. It gives a more accurate picture of a food’s real-life impact on blood sugar.

Unsweetened orange juice (250 ml) | glycemic index of 50, glycemic load of 12
Cranberry juice cocktail (250 ml) | glycemic index of 68, glycemic load of 24 (double the glycemic load!)

If you’ve stopped drinking juice because you’re worried about blood sugar, refill your juice glass and raise a toast: Lower glycemic index juices exist!

Just a generation ago, a glass of juice (usually orange) was an essential part of the breakfast lineup along with eggs, bacon, toast and cereal. Few households were without a carton of orange juice, and few kids left for school in the morning without draining a glass of Florida sunshine.

 

THE GLYCEMIC INDEX

Compared to whole fruit, fruit juice has a high glycemic index, meaning that drinking it causes a rapid surge in blood sugar. This can be bad news for people with type 2 diabetes mellitus — and also a concern for those who are watching their carbs and trying to stay healthy.

The glycemic index (GI) is a number that indicates how rapidly a food or beverage is broken down (metabolized) and converted into blood sugar — glucose. Refined sugar and starches can have a high GI, whereas complex carbs and foods rich in fiber, protein and fat have lower numbers on the scale.

But, as Harvard Medical School’s health education website points out, there’s another factor that matters at least as much, and that’s the glycemic load of a particular food or drink — the amount of sugar it packs.  To understand a food’s complete effect on blood sugar, you need to know both how quickly the food makes glucose enter the bloodstream, and how much glucose it will deliver. A separate value called glycemic load does that. It gives a more accurate picture of a food’s real-life impact on blood sugar.
