My Glycemic Index
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Looking for an app that can easily provide you with the glycemic index and glycemic load of any kind of food? My Glycemic Index is the one!
-GI (Glycemic Index), GL (glycemic load) for each food item
-My Caddy: use it to build your shopping list, recipes, etc
-Advanced search engine
Good to know:
-Glucose is used as the reference food, giving it a glycemic index value of 100 by definition.
-Classification is done in this way: low GI foods are lower than 35,mdeiom GI are between 36 and 50 and high GI are 51 or greater.
-Several diet methods are base on the GI: e.g. Dr. Jenkins, Dr Michel Montignac, etc.

What's New in Version 1.71
bux fix on search
Pretty useless so far
Couldn't find mozzarella or agave nectar (except "light"), but has a plethora of obscure dishes that I've never even tried. I'll keep using it for the lack of better apps. One would think with so many people having to eat a low gi diet, someone would have already come up with a full list of foods. Better than nothing, i guess.
This is a very poorly written App. Author does not state which country specified food groups she is pulling from for her information. She did not even have tomatoes listed in her index. A basic vegetable! Do they not have tomatoes in Sydney? This app is a fraud for users who want to be genuinely concerned about their health and an insult to us as a consumer.
This thing isn't as expected. Items aren't categorized properly. Not helpful.
