    Hello,

    Does anyone know of a source for a database of Glycemic indexes of
    foods. Does a source exist that is linked to the USDA Standard
    Reference values?

    Thus far, can't seem to find a good source online.

    Thanks in advance.

    Google Glycemic Load. IMHO: GI by itself is meaningless.

    The latest database of glycemic index might be published in 2002 by
    Foster-Powell in Am J Clin Nutr, and there is a online database maintained
    by a lab in Australia,you can get the GI and GL of your purposed food
    item.
