The Latest GI Values

Edgell’s canned brown lentils
Although this is an Australian brand, it will probably be similar for other brands of canned lentils. Generally in our testing of legumes (pulses) we find that the GI values are a little higher for canned products than home cooked. Here are the results: GI 42

Sunrice Doongara CleverRice
This is the fifth time SUGiRS has tested this long grain rice in the past five years (they do it every time they are using this brand of rice in a GI study). This time Fiona’s team cooked it in a rice cooker. Here are the results: GI 48
