A Centre for Glycemic Index Testing Opened in Chennai

The Madras Diabetes Research Foundation (MDRF), in collaboration with the U.K.-based Oxford Brookes University, has opened a new Glycemic Index Testing Centre in Chennai .

The direct purpose will be to collect a GI database for common foods, the way they are cooked across Indian households, provide GI evaluation training for clinical nutritionists.

The role of GI in influencing the diabetic status of patients is well known. Now, we have a method to make a more accurate correlation, said Jeya Henry, Head of Food Science and Nutrition, Oxford Brookes University. Dr. Henry said there was a clear need to gather empirical data on the GI value of Indian foods, both because of their being a totally unknown entity, and of the changes, such as milling technology, that had robbed food grains of their essence.

He pointed out that in the typical Indian diet, carbohydrates formed the bulk of calories and the fiber came from unrefined carbohydrates from whole cereals. But the milling technology, along with the need for longer shelf-life, led to the populariz
