double that of the GI standard of 50 g. Although GI is relatively constant across different populations (lean, obese, impaired glucose tolerance, diabetes), the insulin responses vary widely . Postprandial insulin responses to isocaloric amounts of food are not closely related to either the carbohydrate content or the glycemic effects of food; the glycemic response accounts for only 23% of the variability in insulin . Thus, GI may not be a good marker to predict insulin response.
