Why are non-digestible carbohydrates so important?

Carbohydrates affect the blood sugar level with varying intensity. This property is measured by the glycaemic index. At the top of the list are short-chain, easily digestible carbohydrates. These include sugar. Immediately after consumption, they cause a sudden rise in the blood sugar level and thus provide a short-term energy boost. At the very bottom of the glycemic index are carbohydrates from beans and whole grains, including inulin and oligofructose. These reach the large intestine undigested and lactic acid bacteria are there ready for consumption. This creates a healthy intestinal flora in addition to the advantages for the blood sugar level.
