It's a complex carbohydrate, which means it takes more time to breakdown within the intestine and provides a slow and consistent discharge of glucose to the body. This bypasses the risk any spikes and drops in blood sugar level, which is very dangerous for athletes or individuals struggling with diabetes. Bulgur has an estimated glycemic load of 12, which is considered a low glycemic food and helps in the management of diabetes.
