NuGo Nutrition announced that NuGo Slim was tested to have a glycemic index of 24, the lowest published glycemic index of any low sugar or sugar-free protein bar.
The glycemic index is a system that ranks foods on a scale from 1 to 100 based on their effect on blood-sugar levels. A glycemic index of 100 represents the standard, which is an equivalent amount of pure glucose (sugar). Glycemic index does not, however, measure insulin production due to rises in blood sugar – so two foods could have the same glycemic index, but result in different amounts of insulin production.
NuGo Slim bars, sweetened only with chicory root fiber, can help keep blood sugar steady as part of a healthy diet for diabetes, prediabetes or weight management.
Manage Blood Sugar Deliciously with NuGo Slim: Tested Very Low Glycemic Index of 24
Pittsburgh, PA — NuGo Slim high protein bars have the lowest tested and published glycemic index of any low sugar or sugar-free protein bar, and are an ideal choice for managing blood sugar levels.
GI Labs of Toronto, Canada, the experts on the glycemic index, tested NuGo Slim which attained an incredibly low 24 on the glycemic index (GI). The mean number was 24 after a cross section of human subjects blood sugar levels were tested from fasting then eating NuGo Slim bars.
Products with a 70 or above are classified as high GI, while those less than 55 are classified as low GI. Thus, 24 is an incredibly low score proving that NuGo Slim is digested slowly to avoid spikes in blood sugar.
Most low sugar or sugar-free bars use maltitol, a sugar alcohol which can cause gastric distress, and artificial sweeteners. Maltitol syrup is derived from corn, has a GI score similar to table sugar (it digests almost as fast as table sugar) and should be avoided due to the negative effects on blood sugar. NuGo Slim contains no maltitol or artificial sweeteners. It is sweetened with natural chicory root, a prebiotic fiber, with virtually a zero GI response.
Enjoy five delicious gluten-free flavors, including two vegan flavors. Brownie Crunch contains 190 calories, 16 grams of protein, 2 grams of sugar, 7 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of net carbs.
NuGo Slim is coated in luscious REAL dark chocolate that melts below body temperature. When consuming, the natural cocoa butter separates from the non-fat cocoa solids providing the smooth texture as the immense chocolate flavor is released from the non-fat cocoa solids. Virtually all other protein bars are coated in imitation chocolate coating, and often labeled as dark chocolate. Palm kernel oil is substituted for the natural cocoa butter, raising the melt point of the imitation chocolate above body temperature. The fake coating doesn’t melt when consuming, imparting a waxy texture and too sweet taste. As a result of this food labeling deception, NuGo Nutrition started a petition to create a FDA standard for dark chocolate.
Ally, the blogger at Very Light, No Sugar said, “NuGo Slim bars got the Ally A+ nod of approval because they performed as they were advertised. They were yummy, they did not spike my blood sugar, and they, in fact, kept my blood sugar stable when I needed a little boost of carbohydrates throughout the day or night.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 86 million American adults suffer from prediabetes, while 29.1 million have diabetes. Small diet changes, like eating low glycemic foods, and exercising can be helpful in preventing both prediabetes and diabetes. Furthermore, low glycemic foods can help with weight loss and weight management by avoiding blood sugar spikes and the crash cravings that follow.
