It's really 6 of one, a 1/2 dozen of the other Andy.

Most breakfast-style grains have a higher glycemic index than pure sugar.

For those who don't know what the glycemic index means...the higher the number, the greater the insulin fluctuation is after consuming these carbs.

Here are some grain foods. The "better" choices are in red.

Glycemic Index List for Breads Grains, Cereal Pasta With Glycemic Index Values

Glycemix Index:

Pure sugar: 65
Rice cake: 78
Wheat thins: 67
All-bran cereal: 42
Grape nuts: 71
Cream of Wheat: 66
Oatmeal: 58
Barley: 22-48
Brown rice: 66-87
Bulgar wheat: 48

If you want better choices, they are fruits:

Apple: 38
Grapefruit 25
Orange: 42
Pears: 33-42
Strawberries: 40

As far as rice style grains, quinoa is your best option.

Quinoa: 53
