The International Glycemic Index (GI) Database provides access to data tables containing the glycemic index and glycemic load of foods. The database tables also contain information on the location and type of testing, manufacturer’s details, participant numbers and types, who conducted the testing, and where available, citation details of scholarly publications associated with the testing of each food. Data is collected in spreadsheet format (MS Excel), imported into a Filemaker database, then presented in a searchable format on the Glycemic Index website. The Glycemic Index website is a nutrition and health information resource for students, researchers, nutritionists, and the community.
The International Glycemic Index (GI) Database was created by researchers in the School of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Sydney. The International Glycemic Index (GI) Database and supporting Glycemic Index Website are maintained by the Human Nutrition Unit, and the Sydney University Glycemic Index Research Service (SUGiRS).
Key contributors include Fiona Atkinson, Kay Foster-Powell and Susanna Holt. The International Glycemic Index (GI) Database and website are led by Professor Jennie Brand-Miller at the University of Sydney.
Data time period: 1993
