Glycemica app will help you easily find out the values of Glycemic index (GI) and Glycemic load (GL), as well as the calories and nutrition facts of the foods that you eat every day.
The food database contains the following information:

+ Glycemic load (GL)
+ Number of Proteins, Fats, and Carbohydrates
+ Nutrition summary
+ Calorie burn time estimate
GLYCEMICA APP FEATURES:

The glycemic index (GI) is a value used to measure how much specific foods increase blood sugar levels. Foods are classified as low, medium, or high and ranked on a scale of 0–100. The lower the GI of a specific food, the less it may affect your blood sugar levels.
Here are the three GI ratings:
■ Low: 55 or less
■ Medium: 56–69
■ High: 70 or above
Foods high in refined carbs and sugar are digested more quickly and often have a high GI, while foods high in protein, fat, or fiber typically have a low GI.
Foods that contain no carbs are not assigned a GI and include meat, fish, poultry, nuts, seeds, herbs, spices, and oils. Other factors that affect the GI of food include the ripeness, cooking method, type of sugar it contains, and the amount of processing it has undergone.
Keep in mind that the glycemic index is different from the glycemic load (GL).
Unlike the GI, which doesn’t take into account the amount of food eaten, the GL factors in the number of carbs in a serving of a food to determine how it may affect blood sugar levels. For this reason, it’s important to take both the glycemic index and glycemic load into consideration when selecting foods to help support healthy blood sugar levels.
This app is ideal for people with prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or those who follow Keto, Atkins, Paleo, Mediterranean, Montignac, or low-carb diets.
The app includes an optional in-app purchase that allows unlocking of a Plus version with more functionalities available.

Ratings and Reviews
Great data but no tracking
I was looking for an app that would help me track my daily Glycemic Load. This app has great data and calculators but no place to record what I eat in any given day.
Unfortunately you have to pay to see. There is no preview or trial. I don’t quite understand how this is supposed to be helpful. You can’t track anything. The food is measured in 3 oz portions. What’s the point of putting your body information in if it’s not taking into account for burning calories. Yeah, I’m feeling pretty ripped off.
Developer Response ,
saswalker, It seems like your review is absolutely off the topic. First of all the app is free. There is an in-app purchase to upgrade to premium to unlock extra features, but it is optional. Secondly, the nutrition facts are provided per 100 grams which is the industry standard. Lastly, you only need to input your body information to calculate BMI which works perfectly.
It is missing a lot of foods
For example collard greens. However, the calculator sort of solves the issue. If we could add these foods then it could get fried sourced.
Using this to get the glycemic load and move beyond just net carbs.
