Products with low-glycemic labeling have been on store shelves around the world for about 20 years, but in the United States, it was first around 2003 that such products entered mainstream U.S. supermarkets. And even then, their presence has been minimal in the marketplace. However, most food industry experts predict this is going to change, and that promoting foods based on their glycemic index, or a similar measure, is going to have a long-lasting impact on the way Americans choose the foods and beverages they consume.

Prior to 2003, U.S. products that boasted the fact that they were low-glycemic tended to be dietary or nutritional supplements, rather than foods and beverages, and were sold in natural food stores. After the low-carb diet came and disappeared, U.S. consumers began to understand that not all carbohydrates are created equal. They started to understand the difference, and many were immediately open to the concept of low-glycemic foods and beverages.
