Are products with low-calorie sweeteners suitable for people on a low GI Diet?

Yes. Glycaemic Index (GI) ratings range between zero and 100 with 55 and below being low GI, 56-69 medium GI and 70+ high GI. Low calorie sweeteners (aspartame, cyclamate, saccharin, acesulfam K, thaumatin) have no carbohydrates, which means that they do not affect blood glucose levels and have no GI rating.
