Spanish term or phrase: glucidos
El texto viene hablando de dietas hipocalóricas e hidratos de carbono. “Glucide” no me cierra ya que al español es glucida o sacarina. La frase en sí dice “los hidratos de carbono o glúcidos, que aunque uno en la dieta hipocalórica los restringe, son necesarios en el organismo...”

\"Los hidratos de carbono son una clase básica de compuestos químicos en bioquímica. Son la forma biológica primaria de almacén o consumo de energía; otras formas son las grasas y las proteínas.

Sinónimos:

* Carbohidrato: Este nombre para los hidratos de carbono es poco apropiado, porque estas moléculas no son átomos de carbono hidratados, es decir, enlazados a moléculas de agua, sino de átomos de carbono unidos a otros grupos químicos. El nombre de cabrohidrato se mantiene por razones historicas ya que se creía que estas moleculas tenian la fórmula de Cn(H20)n (donde \"n\" es un entero=1,2,3... segun el número de átomos) y de ahi \"carbonio-hidratado\", aunque posteriormente se ha visto que no todos los glucidos se corresponden con esa denominación.
* Glúcido: Este nombre proviene de que pueden considerarse derivados de la glucosa por polimerización y pérdida de agua. El vocablo procede del griego \"glyc<breve>s\", que significa dulce.
* Azúcares. ...\"

\"Glycaemic index concept and metabolic diseases.
Bornet FR, Billaux MS, Messing B.
Eridania Beghin-Say, Nutrition and Health Service, Vilvoorde, Belgium.
Glycaemic response is not just a function of a compound belonging to the class of simple sugars or to the class of starches, or in other words, the size of the molecule. Glycaemic response to carbohydrates depends on several factors, particularly the chemical nature of the ***glucids***, their origin, their mode of preparation, the physical form under which food is consumed, the presence of other nutrients (lipids, proteins) and fiber. Glycaemic and insulinemic indexes can be used to semi-quantitatively classify types of food as a function of their power to raise glucose and insulin levels. A recent mera-analysis of a dozen clinical trials has shown the utility of replacing high glycaemic index carbohydrates with low glycaemic index carbohydrates to improve different metabolic parameters in patient subgroups at risk (DDM, NIDDM, high triglyceride levels, etc.). In addition, this knowledge can eliminate the need to systematically forbid all sugars and sweet foods, and thus in an apparent paradox, to respect both food behavior and enjoyment alongside compliance with dietary advice. ...\"
