Useless Information

There has been some recent debate lately as to the GI factor of Baked Beans versus Weet Bix.

Thunder very adamently proclaimed that Baked Beans are LOW GI and have a far lower GI factor than the humble Weet Bix.

Well, thanks to Google. I'd like to set the record straight.

Baked Beans have a GI factor of 57, Weet Bix have a GI factor of 61. Hmmm, not a huge difference there.... also, to be a LOW GI food, the GI factor must be below 55.

Useless information??? Definately. www.glycemicindex.com
