Shakeology® is officially Low GI

Taste the success. Shakeology® is officially certified on the low end of what’s already considered “low” on the Glycemic Index (GI). That’s a whole lotta low to love! If you’re not familiar with the GI, it’s basically a scale of 1 to 100 that measures how much or how quickly a particular food causes your blood sugar to rise.

The higher the number, the higher the blood sugar “spike,” and ultimately, the worse the crash. Type 2 diabetes can be a product of too many high-GI foods. So as you can see, this is serious business. Anything lower than a 55 is considered low GI. Shakeology rang up a score of 24. That’s lower than most fruits and veggies, thanks in part to the fact that Shakeology uses naturally-occurring sugar rather than that high fructose corn syrup stuff made from genetically-modified corn.

To make things easy to understand AND share, we put together a one-sheet that explains the GI, lists all the important facts, and shows how Shakeology measures up against other foods.
