Meal Planning, Food and Diet

Question from Kingdom of Bahrain:

Please lead me to references that will explain the differences in the glycemic index for each type of food and why (such as why bananas and grapes have a higher glycemic index than apples and oranges).

Answer:

The best place to start is the Glycemic Index page at my website. That explains the different factors that influence the glycemic index of various foods.
