  1. NS (Non Specific), not specified; type 1 and type 2, subjects with type 1 and type 2 diabetes; AUC (Area Under the Curve). Serving sizes in grams unless specified otherwise.
  2. x ± SEM (Standard Error of Mean). Two GI vlaues are shown for each food−one in which glucose sugar was used as the reference food and one in which white bread was used as the reference food.
  3. Estimated by multiplying the food’s listed GI value with glucose as the reference food by the listed g carbohydrate per serving and dividing by 100.
  4. Values based on 0.5 g carbohydrate/kg body wt.
  5. AUC measured over 3 h for only 5 time points (0, 30, 60, 120, and 180 min).
  6. Human Nutrition Unit (Sydney University, Australia), unpublished observations, 1995–2002.
  7. V Lang (Danone Vitapole Company, Le Plessis-Robinson, France), unpublished observations, 1996–2000.
  8. GI corrected for added milk and adjusted to represent a 50-g carbohydrate portion size.
  9. Made from raw oats that were cooked for 20 min.
  10. Portions of the test food and the reference food contained 25 g carbohydrate.
