Why are indigestible carbohydrates so important?
Carbohydrates have different effects on the blood sugar levels. This effect is measured by the glycemic index chain. Easily digested carbohydrates are right at the top of the list. Sugar belongs to one of these. Straight after ingesting sugar there is a sharp rise in the blood sugar levels which creates a short boost in energy. Carbohydrates from beans and whole grain cereal are at the bottom of the list, including inulin.
