November nutrition nuggets: How SWEET it is!



Researchers from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences reveal sweet potato as a weapon against diabetes.  The good news for diabetics is that research has confirmed that sweet potatoes are a low-glycemic index (GI) food. The glycemic index measures how quickly certain foods release carbohydrates into the body. High-GI foods cause blood sugar levels to spike, while low-GI foods release glucose slowly into the bloodstream.
