19 Low Glycemic Foods

7. Apples.

It should come as no surprise that apples made the list, considering many fast food restaurants now offer apples as a substitution for French fries. Apples are a typical snack food that can be enjoyed with dips, hummus, or by themselves and they offer ample vitamin C, fiber, and a healthy amount of carbs. This popular fruit falls to about 36 on the glycemic index, but the glycemic load on the body is well under 10. Consider eating more apples as part of your daily snack to not only cut down on the calories, but to help reduce inflammation that other typical snack foods to offer.
