Low GI 46
Food with a GI value under 55 out of 100 is considered "Low GI". Our brown rice was tested at the Glycemic Index Research Unit (GIRU), a Singapore Accreditation Council approved facility, with a value of 46; making it one of the lowest GI rice globally.
Foods that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose have higher GI values while those causing a gradual rise in blood glucose have lower GI values.
Why Low GI?
According to Ministry Of Health (MOH), 1 in 3 Singaporeans is at risk of developing diabetes in their lifetime.
Over 450,000 Singaporeans live with Diabetes.
To quote HealthHub.SG: "Eating too much high GI foods causes repeated spikes in your blood glucose. Studies show that this can lead to an increased risk for Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, obesity and colorectal cancer. For persons with diabetes, eating low GI foods helps to control blood glucose levels and improve weight loss"
