Glycemic Load Explained
While the glycemic index classifies foods according to how fast 50g of carbs in them raises our blood glucose levels, Glycemic Load indicates how fast a standard portion of a particular food (like Porridge Oats) raises blood glucose, and thus gives an indication of glycemic and insulin response.

Low Glycemic Foods vs. Low Carb Dieting
The low risk of disease associated with lower-GI foods is related to consumption of low-glycemic index carbs, NOT low-carbohydrate consumption. For eating guidelines, see Low Glycemic Index Food Pyramid

Glycemic Response, Blood Glucose and Insulin
Hormones from the pancreas, called insulin and glucagon help to regulate blood glucose levels. Excess high GI foods can lead to hyperinsulimia, insulin resistance, weight gain, and possibly obesity, leading to insulin resistance syndrome.

Note: Glycemic response values for carbohydrate-rich foods can vary, so the above glycemic load rating for Porridge Oats is intended as a guideline only.
