Q. Are cornflakes good for health? I read somewhere that they have high glycaemic index, which makes them unsuitable for diabetics. Is this true?

A.  Glycaemic index of cornflakes is around 85. You can eat cornflakes for breakfast if you are not diabetic. If you are diabetic and if your blood sugar tends to spike after breakfast, you may want to select a cereal that has a lower glycaemic index.
