I would like to understand better the Glycaemic load.
Huel powder has a GI of 29. It contains 37g of carbohydrates per 100g, meaning the GL of 100g of huel is 29 * 37 / 100 = 10.7 which is great
What I don’t understand it that Huel contains a lot of instant oats and instant oats have a GI of 60.
Why does the GL of huel per 100g is not 60x37/100 = 22?
How is the IG of a recipe (= containing many ingredients) is determined?
For example, if i have 30g of carbohydrates with a GI of 50, it gives a GL of 30x50/100=15
What about the GI of a recipe that would contain 30g of carbohydrates with GI 50 + 30g of fat with GI of 0?
Is the GL 15 (carbohydrates) + 0 = 15 or does the fat reduces the GI of the recipe, meaning that the GI of the recipe would be 50 + 0 = 25, leading to a GL of 25 x 30 / 100 = 7.5 for this recipe?
What is the compute method?
It is just for my information, i’m curious
