Q & A: ///  
Q and A highlights standout inquiries from customers that we receive each month.

Q:You’ve said that Sambazon Original Açaí Juice is Low Glycemic, what does that mean?

A: The glycemic index (GI) is a ranking of carbohydrate foods (on a scale from 0 to 100) based on their effect on blood glucose levels after ingestion; low-GI foods are foods with a lesser glycemic effect meaning that they don’t raise blood sugar levels as high following consumption; high-GI foods are those with a greater glycemic effect. Foods with a high GI are those whose sugar is rapidly digested and absorbed resulting in marked fluctuations in blood sugar levels. Because low-GI foods produce more gradual rises in blood sugar and insulin levels they are perceived to be healthier for routine consumption.

To read more about the Glycemic Index according to Ashley Koff RD, www.ashleykoffapproved.com, and see the sources visit the Sambazon Blog.

RECIPES /// The Game Changer Smoothie

The Game Changer Smoothie
"I’ve always been into starting the day with a good breakfast and I used to think a smoothie made with some orange juice, a banana, maybe some frozen berries and some cheap whey protein got the job done. But then we discovered açaí in Brazil and I started learning about all these other organic superfood ingredients I could throw into my Vitamix blender - it was a complete game changer.

Here’s one of my favorites that packs some serious nutrition."
-Jeremy Black
