CEU Course Description
Rice is an important staple food for more than half of the world's population and is a major contributor to dietary glycemic load (GL). This CEU course explores literature characterizing the range of postprandial glucose (PPG) and postprandial insulin (PPI) responses to different rice types, and considers this alongside available data on rice grain and processing characteristics. The main emphasis is on in vivo studies conducted in human subjects.
