Hi Magic, Jaeme’s explanation is correct. You obviously have the new book, which adds this comment under the table:
“The glycemic index for dates was originally reported to be over 100, yeilding a very low FP, but subsequent studies show it’s much lower, thus the FP correction to 27 grams for a 2.1 ounce serving.”
Thanks for pointing out the discrepancy in the text. Something to fix for the next printing.
