Cabbage Glycemic index (GI)

N/A

Cabbage is low in sugars, as most of the carbohydrate content of a cabbage consists of dietary fiber. Because of this, consuming enough cabbage to calculate its glycemic index is exceedingly difficult. 

An exact number for the glycemic index of cabbages has not yet been calculated by official sources. However, it is assumed to be low.

It is known that cabbages can have beneficial, antidiabetic properties.

Cabbage consumption has been explored for glucose lowering and insulin sensitizing potential and suggested as an adjuvant to oral hypoglycemic drugs (1).

Animal testing has found that red cabbage improves the functions of liver and kidney of diabetic rats and, therefore, has potential to ameliorate diabetes mellitus in humans (2).
