Glycemic carbohydrate(measured in g) is the amount of digestible carbohydrate which directly influences your blood glucose, i.e will have an effect on raising blood glucose, whereas the glycemic index is the rate at which the carbohydrate is absorbed. As an example, a food with 10grams of digestible carbohydrate and a low GI, will contain 10grams of carbohydrate that will contribute to raising your blood glucose and the low GI tells us that this will happen slowly.
