  • Methodology of the GI is well established and, despite inherent biological variability in the measurement, good agreement can be achieved between different laboratories.
  • A diet with a low glycemic load may not have the same physiological effects as a low-GI diet.
  • Research conducted over the last 25 years suggests that the GI has potential therapeutic utility.
  • To allow the GI concept to become a practical reality, the food industry will be instrumental in developing a wider range of readily available, acceptable, low-GI foods.
