Glycemic index (also glycaemic index, GI) is a ranking system for carbohydrates based on their effect on blood glucose levels. It compares available carbohydrates gram for gram in individual foods, providing a numerical, evidence-based index of postprandial (post-meal) glycemia. The concept was invented by Dr. David J. Jenkins and colleagues in 1981 at the University of Toronto.
On of the most informative sites about your glycemic load of foods is found at http://www.montignac.com/en/ig_pionnier.php. The site is published by a former "big pharma" executive, so you know its credible.
You should check out the glycemic index for management of other health conditions such as weight management, lowering the acidity of your body and other related health conditions
