White rice is much more dangerous in terms of glycemic index than white bread. It has glycemic index of 102.

We often tell people not to take cola drinks but they eat white bread. The glycemic index for white bread is 100% and that for cola drink is 90%. Traditional Indian drinks like Rooh Afza, Khas Khas may also contain more than 10% sugar.

The recommended sugary drink does not contain more than 2-3% sugar, which is the amount present in oral rehydration solution. People leave a cola drink and take mashed potato, which has glycemic index more than that of a cola drink (102 versus 90).

Pizza has a glycemic index of 86. Table sugar has a glycemic index of 84, while that of jam is 95. French fries have a glycemic index of 95.

Most people add sugar in food and snacks because sugar is a preservative. Less the sugar, earlier the food will be spoiled.

To avoid refined carbohydrates in diet, if one has to choose, then the most dangerous is white rice, followed by white bread and then comes white sugar.
