Our expert says:
The GI of a food is not only determined by its ingredients, but also by the way in which it is processed. In the case of pasta made with durum wheat, it has a low GI, which makes it a 'good' carb.
Wheat breads on the other hand, have a much higher GI. Provita, sourdough rye bread, and seed load breads have a low GI. Pita bread, ryvita, and wheat-free rye bread have a medium GI, so all these breads can be used if you are trying to lower the GI of your diet. However, wholewheat and brown bread (which both have a high GI), have other advantages such as a good dietary fibre content and a relatively good mineral content, thus they can also be included in a healthy diet.
