The Latest GI Values with Fiona Atkinson

Chocolate #9 GI 46
This tasty chocolate treat was GI tested by GI Labs in Toronto. It is thick gel that’s a blend of organic low GI agave and Belgian-style dark chocolate. Although it’s much lower in fat and calories than the equivalent amount of dark chocolate, remember it’s still a ‘sometimes’ food, especially for anyone watching their weight. Packaged in 29.5 g (around 2 tablespoons) single serve foil pouches, it is suitable for people on vegan and vegetarian diets. For more information and the nutrition facts about Chocolate #9, check out the manufacturer’s website.
