Glycemic Index

Q.  What is the source of the glycemic index information?


A.  The glycemic index/load data that is currently in the database was adapted from this source:

Foster-Powell K et al, International table of glycemic index and glycemic load values: American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, 2002; 76:5- 56

Glycemic load = [glycemic index x (total carbohydrate grams - total fiber grams)] / 100
