Did you know there’s 1.42 milligrams of Riboflavin in Cheerios? And 1,917 milligrams of Selenium of brazil nuts?
Yes, our food database is full of intricate details about your favorite foods, and yet, where’s the much hyped glycemic index!?
We’re working on it.
“The Home of the Glycemic Index” at the University of Sydney has a vast searchable database, but a full list isn’t available for download (which is a shame, because we could do such a better job than their search tool!).
The National Cancer Institute is far more generous. Their Dietary History Questionaire has its own food database which they’ve made available to the public. The database includes a list of GI values for a set of foods. The next challenge is to incorporate this data into our database.
Like I said, we’re working on it! Stay tuned.
