Example text

GI values for foods based on bread as a reference (GIwb) are higher than those based on glucose (GI). Therefore, when reading the literature on GI it is important to know what the reference food is. I showed in my PhD thesis that the GIwb values could be converted to GI values by simply dividing the GIwb values by 100/x where x is the mean GI value of white bread. 333. 65. The linear regression of the adjusted GIwb values on GI values produced a regression line which was virtually superimposed on the line of identity across the entire range of GI values (Fig.

Thus, IAUC cannot have a value < 0. It was initially used because it indicates the amount to which the food raises blood glucose above the fasting concentration. , 1989) includes all area below the curve, including area below the fasting concentration. Since it is calculated by applying the trapezoid rule to both positive and negative blood glucose increments, the effect is to subtract area below the fasting level from that above. IAUC Total AUC AUCcut netAUC AUCmin Fig. 4. Area subtended by different methods used to calculate area under the curve.

There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way of calculating AUC; indeed, different methods may be most appropriate depending on the purpose of the analysis. Unfortunately, in some of the literature, the method of calculating AUC is not indicated, and it can, therefore, be difficult to know if the magnitudes of the relative effects of different test meals found in one study are comparable to those found in another. For the GI to be a valid and useful property of foods, and for valid comparisons of experimental results with published GI values, a standardized method of calculating AUC must be used.
