What's low Glycemic Index (GI) and why does it matter?
If you're not diabetic, this could be a non-issue for you.
But for diabetics, the need to keep their sugar level stable is highly determined by GI values, which refer to the rate at which different foods raise a person's blood sugar level.
As such, they are encouraged to consume low-GI foods. For everyone else, including low-GI foods in your diet can help to lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Recently, NTUC Foodfare and some students at Temasek Polytechnic (TP) have collaborated to launch a series of Healthier Choice, low Glycemic Index (GI), halal-certified meals that will benefit Singaporeans across all age groups.
These co-created dishes were built upon nutrition guidelines, while ensuring that taste and appearance wasn't compromised.
We tasted four of the items and here's our verdict:
4. Beef Bulgogi 9” Pizza
The flavours of this Beef Bulgolgi Pizza was rather spot on, with grilled, marinated meat a la the popular Korean dish. Altogether it was a delicious rendition, though we’d have preferred less of the spring onions.
