glycemic index of syrups?
 
Does anyone know the glycemic index of syrups, particularly maple
syrup?
I was looking at Mendosa's spreadsheet this morning and found nothing.
http://www.mendosa.com/common_foods.htm, then open GI spreadsheet for
a list of 1700 foods listing glycemic index and glycemic load.
Thanks

Kent

glycemic index of syrups?
 
syrup is made with sugar or corn fructose (oh,
what is the name of it)

so i would imagine it's close to 100

Maple syrup is made by boiling the sap of the sugar maple until it is
67% solids. (It takes about 40 gallons of sap to make one gallon of
syrup.) There is no corn or beet sugar in it at all. The garbage you
can buy in most grocery stores is corn syrup with caramel flavors.

There should be a major difference.

It's still loaded with sugar. I'd imagine it's over 100.
