Does anyone know of a good (Apple) App that will give glycemic indexes of foods?
Since Norm’s fantastic FP calculator popped up, I find myself doing FP calculations far more often rather than just sticking to foods I know, since I can just take a quick look on my smart phone when I am out buying food or dining in a restaurant. If I could look up the glycemic index in an equally quick manner it would be great…Norm RobillardKeymasterJuly 9, 2014 at 12:39 pmPost count: 445
Happy to see you are using the FP calculator. I have the Monash University Low FODMAP app that is the “official” and best one I know of.hazymandolinParticipantJuly 9, 2014 at 1:58 pmPost count: 22
I have that App too, back from when I was trying the low FODMAP diet – and yet still having symptoms. Your book explains that one! I also bought Carol Sinclair’s book which I think was a great start to where I needed to be. I don’t wish to speak too soon, but finding the Digestive Health Institute might well be my holy grail.
I must dust off the Monash App though, it is very good for advising on the type of fermentable carbs in foods.Norm RobillardKeymasterJuly 9, 2014 at 3:18 pmPost count: 445
Oh no, senior moment. That app does not have glycemic index data!
Here are some references for GI data:
1. The 2002 published database.. You can download the PDF:
2. For updated info or searching by individual foods, here is the official GI site. I have used this to add foods and make corrections to the GI data I use for FP table updates:
