Description:

The glycemic index (GI) for a food is based on the area under the 2 hour glucose curve for a 50 gram carbohydrate load from the food versus the area under the curve for the same amount of a reference material. The 2 standard reference materials are glucose and white bread. A glycemic load using one reference material can be converted to the equivalent glycemic load based on the second reference material.
