Which foods do not change blood glucose levels drastically and thus, are considered safe for diabetic patients to consume?

This is my sub question for my science fair and I was wondering if you could help me answer it because I couldn't find an answer for it. So I decided to ask an expert. Please help!

Thank You!

The following website includes the glycemic load number and other nutritional information for a wide variety of foods:

Please do post again if you have any other questions.
