To use the ‘Diabetics Acid-Alkaline Food Chart’ diabetics should follow both the alkaline diet rule and the glycemic index rule.

Alkaline Diet Rule

This first rule sets general dietary boundaries. It recommends that the daily food intake be at least 80% of alkalizing foods and no more than 20% of acidifying foods. It also emphasizes that the more alkaline a food is, the better it is; and inversely the more acidic a food is, the worse it is for human body.

The Glycemic Index Rule

In the chart presented below, foods are divided in four groups depending on their glycemic index (GI=0-100). (1) The foods written in green color contain almost no carbohydrate and have in consequence a negligible glycemic index (GI~0); those foods may be eaten freely by people with diabetes. (2) Foods written in black color have carbohydrates with a low glycemic index (GI 55 or less); they should be eaten with caution. (3) The foods in red color possess carbohydrates of high glycemic index (GI 56 or more); these last foods should be avoided as far as possible. (4) For any processed food, here written in blue color, diabetics need to consult the manufacturer’s label to know the actual glycemic index.

More details on food glycemic index can be found at The Glycemic Index of Foods – American Diabetes Association and at The University of Sydney - GI Database.
