& Glycemic Load
At INQUIS, our scientists have been determining the Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load of foods since 1995, and have determined the Glycemic Index of hundreds of food products over this time Our senior scientists were part of the research group that introduced the concept of the Glycemic Index to the scientific community in 1981 and have continued to contribute to its research ever since.
When you determine the Glycemic Index or Glycemic Load of your products at INQUIS, you test with confidence that your research is carefully conducted by experienced and globally-renowned experts in our ISO-certified clinical research laboratory.
