Diogenes GI Database

diogenes logoDiogenes is a pan-European Programme to tackle obesity from a dietary perspective: seeking new insights and new routes to prevention.

As part of the Diogenes intervention study, glycaemic index (GI) values were assigned to Czech, Danish, Dutch, German and UK food composition tables. GI values were also assigned to foods consumed by study participants that were not included in any of the above food composition tables. The study has made these GI tables available as a series of spreadsheets, which can be found here.
