What is GiLICIOUS?

A new food brand developed by the Glycemic Index Foundation, who are a not-for-profit health promotion charity supported by the University of Sydney and Diabetes NSW & ACT.  The GI Foundation’s mission is to contribute to an improvement in public health by raising awareness and understanding of the health benefits of low GI foods, and assisting food suppliers in providing  the community in making nutritionally healthier food choices using the GI.  High-level scientific evidence proves following a low GI diet helps to manage and prevent health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

Why has Diabetes Qualified recommended the range of products?

As diabetes educators, Diabetes Qualified approves of a healthy low GI diet to help manage blood glucose levels. Whilst every individual needs personalised dietary advice from an Accredited Practicing Dietitian to suit their situation, these products are healthy low/lower GI options, and likely a good choice for people living with diabetes if consumed in the right portions.
