NOTE: Low GI Foods Are Digested More Slowly

Foods with low glycemic index values are typically higher in dietary fiber, less refined, and more chewy. This makes it more difficult for digestive enzymes in the digestive tract to metabolize the carbohydrate into glucose, and thus stops blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly. The presence of acid (eg. in citrus fruit) also retards glucose metabolism, as does fat, although fats used in baking processes or added to food (eg. butter, mayonnaise) may be high in saturated fat - the type of fat linked to atherosclerotic heart disease.
