NOTE:  The glycemic index is used to determine how quickly a food will elevate your blood sugar.  Foods with a high glycemic index are generally not at good for you.  When the blood sugar raises too quickly it causes a spike in the fat storing hormone insulin, which is associated with diabetes and other degenerative diseases.  Raw Organic Agave is a great alternative because its Glycemic Index, abbreviated GI, is closer to that of brown rice.
