Food 1.Total fat 6,5 gSaturated fat - 1,5gSodium - 225 mgTotal carbohydrate 17 gsugars - 5 gProtein - 2,5 gWould this food have a high, low or medium glycemic response? How quickly would it be  digested?In order to answer this question I have to do some math - divide sugars on the total carbohydrate:5g : 17 g =0,29.And multiply by 100%:0,29 * 100 =29%.
