SmartCarb is a low glycemic, high fiber, all natural whole grain carbohydrate that we use to add fiber and nutrition to our Smart for Life products. We use SmartCarb on our cookies and in our ice creams. The advantage of SmartCarb over other carbohydrates is that it has a low glycemic index.
The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrates on a scale from 0 to 100 according to the extent to which they raise blood sugar levels after eating. Foods with a high GI are those which are rapidly digested and absorbed and result in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Low-GI foods, by virtue of their slow digestion and absorption, produce gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels, and have proven benefits for health.
SmartCarb: SmartCarbs are quality carbs that are nutrient dense, have a low-glycemic index, and contain a plentiful amount of fiber. These include fruits and vegetables as well as whole grains like whole wheat pasta, brown rice, oats, quinoa, and barley. There are many more SmartCarbs to choose from (see below for the complete list). These foods will not spike your blood sugar; instead, they help to keep your blood sugar levels stable which will keep you satisfied longer. Try to eat 1-2 servings of SmartCarbs with each Nutrisystem meal.
