WHAT IS GLYCEMIC INDEX (GI)?
GI indicates how rapidly the body digests a particular type of food and converts it into blood sugar (glucose). Foods with high GI values contain rapidly digested carbohydrates which produce large and rapid increases (spikes) in our levels of blood glucose.
Scientific studies suggest that low-GI diets (ie, GI value of less than 55) may offer important health benefits because slowly digested carbohydrates produce gradual, relatively low increases in our levels of blood glucose.
BENEFITS OF LOW-GI DIET
Backed by over 40 years of scientific evidence,
low-GI foods bring many benefits.
Low-GI foods have been known to reduce the risks of:
Type 2 and Gestational Diabetes
Breast and Bowel Cancer

HOW NUVOJOY PLAYS A PART
Nuvojoy develops clinically-tested low-GI Asian desserts and premixes, such as soy pudding, kueh bahulu, kueh lapis and madeleine cake.
Nuvojoy’s team of food scientists and nutritionists curated different natural and functional ingredients to methodologically develop tasty desserts without compromising on
flavour or texture.
Our products are digested and absorbed more slowly, resulting in a lower and slower increase in our blood sugar levels.
Regardless of whether you are health conscious, diabetic, concerned for your loved ones' food intake, or simply being careful about the food that you ingest, we’ve got something that you'll enjoy.
