Dear An Apple a Day
The GI of different apples may well vary slightly due to factors such as degree of ripeness of water content, etc, but it is important to remember that GI-values are not written in stone and actually only act as indicators of how a given food will influence blood sugar and insulin values. It does not matter that the GI for fresh apples is listed as 38 and some of these apples may have a GI of 36 and other a GI of 40. The important thing is that fresh apples are low GI fruits.
