Mung bean; Rice; Food--Carbohydrate content
Moong beans are widely used in Asian-Indian diets in various forms and make an important contribution to the protein content of a vegetarian diet. Since they are consumed with rice which is less favored in a diabetic diet, we planned to determine the glycemic index of two forms of moong beans, whole . GI for WM and DM are similar to most available GI for the beans. The data show that the fiber component in legumes may not be important in determining the glycemic response of individual legumes. GI of rice is reported to be 72. Calculated GI's from individual GI of rice and whole moong <51) and for rice and dehusked moong <52> are close to the observed values for the combined meals. The data show that reasonable estimation of GI for mixed meals from the GI of Individual meal components may be possible.
