ostprandial hyperglycemia is a significant driver of common chronic diseases globally. In a single individual on a given day, carbohydrate-rich foods are the major determinant of Post Prandial Glycemia (PPG). Unfortunately, even after four decades of the publication of the first comprehensive list of Glycemic index (GI) values, many health professionals still believe that sugar and sugar-sweetened beverages have greater impact on PPG than starchy foods like bread and potatoes. This belief has no scientific basis. Most starchy foods have a GI greater than 70, while most sugary foods are less than 70,1 and on the whole, we eat twice as much energy in the form of starch as added sugar.
