Thanks for this. Very interesting – though have not worked out what it measn fro my eating habits yet!
Years ago when I got GI interested, I cam across a line of research and discussion (sue Holt & colleagues) that it should not be the GI, but the insulin response that we measure, as GI is seen as unhelpful in relation to the need for the body to produce insulin (with diabetes type two being related to insulin resistance). The researcher looking at this said that the II (I think they called it- Insulin index) did not map onto GI predictably (just as GI and glycemic load may vary with the mix of foods ingested (e.g. vinegar supposedly lowers GI I have read)). They now appear to be looking at satiety as well (e.g. http://www.mendosa.com/satiety.htm). Does anyone know of or have any thoughts on this?
