I've been curious if dates are one of the best things to have for a low blood sugar, for it to rapidly rise. The glycemic index of dates are 103 (where glucose tabs are 102)! A question that is occurring for me is could a lower glycemic drink (such as gatorade, or juice) raise your blood sugar faster, because it is a liquid and could be more easily absorbed into your blood stream? If a food is high on the glycemic index, can a liquid with a lower index raise it faster? Or not? What do you think?
