Blood Test

Lower Glycemic Index

One of the standout features of sourdough bread is its lower glycemic index (GI) compared to conventional breads. The glycemic index measures how quickly a food raises blood sugar levels after consumption. Foods with a high GI cause rapid spikes in blood sugar, while those with a low GI result in a slower, more gradual increase. Sourdough’s lower GI means it causes a more controlled release of glucose into the bloodstream, helping to maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Petri Dish

Reduced Glycemic Load

Sourdough not only has a lower glycemic index but also a reduced glycemic load (GL). Glycemic load takes into account both the quality and quantity of carbohydrates in a serving of food. A lower glycemic load means that sourdough has a minimal impact on blood sugar levels per serving, making it a healthier choice for those monitoring their carbohydrate intake.

Examining Blood Sample

Increased Insulin Sensitivity

Studies have shown that consuming sourdough bread can improve insulin sensitivity. This means that your body's cells become more responsive to insulin, the hormone responsible for regulating blood sugar levels. Improved insulin sensitivity helps your body use glucose more efficiently, reducing the risk of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes.
