Are Sola Bars low on the glycemic index?

Sola Bars have not been tested for a glycemic index reading, but the ingredients in Sola Bars have low glycemic index values. For those unfamiliar with the term, Glycemic Index is a numeric scale between 0 and 100 that rates how fast foods are converted into blood sugar, the sugar our bodies use for energy. Diabetics and those on low glycemic diets use the GI as a guide. The lower the number, the slower the food is converted into blood sugar—a good thing because it keeps the blood sugar steadier. Please check with your doctor if you are on a formal glycemic meal plan to determine if our bars can be incorporated in your diet.
