Does the breakdown of the cell walls of fiber cause the glycemic index rating to rise?

Since the Nutribullet RX breaks down the cell walls to make the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables more bioavailable, does that make the glycemic index rating rise due to smaller fiber pieces? I am on a low carb and sugar diet so this would make a difference to me if the fiber does not "negate" some of the grams of sugar.

Dietitian's Answer

To our knowledge, the glycemic index does not rise because fiber is still present that slows the sugars from entering the blood stream.

Breaking down cell walls does increase availability of nutrients, the vital components are still there: nutrients + fiber.
