Back to HLNT Resources List


  • Carbohydrate foods become glucose (sugar) in the body. 
  • Carbohydrate foods that release glucose more slowly are better for blood glucose levels. 
  • Choose some slow release carbohydrate at each meal and include foods from the medium release column in moderation. 
  • When eating a fast release food, choose a smaller serve and eat a slow release food with it.
