Diabetes & Glycemic Index
The lower the Glycemic Index (GI) of a food, the slower the rise in blood glucose levels will be when the food is consumed. Researchers at the Oxford Brookes University in the UK demonstrated that consuming Baobab Fruit Powder helps regulate blood sugar – which is particularly good news for those with Type 2 Diabetes. Baobab is rich in soluble dietary fiber which slows down the rise in blood glucose, helping prevent sugar spikes. It is also high in polyphenols which have been shown to effect the release of sugars from carbohydrates into the blood stream, reducing their conversion into glucose.
