Glycaemic Index testing service is launched.
The fact that the prevalence of diabetes is forecast to spiral in the future, combined with the dramatic rise in Atkin's popularity, means that it is important that food manufacturers establish the GI values of existing products ranges and consider developing new low-carb and low-GI products for the growing marketplace.
It is not possible to predict accurately the GI value of a product, making it necessary to test the GI value in vivo in human subjects.
LFI's new service is carried out according to the WHO/FAO 1998 protocol, which has also been approved by the University of Surrey Ethics Committee. All testing is monitored by GI experts, and undertaken by trained staff under medical supervision.
