Background: Glycemic index is a relative ranking that tells how fast or slow carbohydrates alter your blood sugar level, While Satiety index is a ranking that describe the feeling of fullness after eating specific food.
Aim: To determine GI & SI of different biscuits (chocolate chip, chocolato and candy).
Methods: The GI and SI of 25 people were tested by giving them 3 types of different local biscuits. Their blood glucose level was monitored for 3 hours. Same way their Satiety level was observed for 3 hours. For satiety level, 5 people were given white bread as standard value.
Results: Results showed that glycemic indices are 116.34±3.164, 108.93±3.874 and 110.99±7.18 of candy biscuit, chocolato biscuit and chocolate chip biscuit respectively. While their satiety indices are 52.66±6.38, 42.89±3.23 and 47.45±3.29 of candy biscuit, chocolato biscuit and chocolate chip biscuit respectively.
Conclusion: From experiments it is concluded that Glycemic indices of biscuits are 110.99±7.18, 108.93±3.874 and 116.34±3.164 of chocolate chip, chocolato and candy biscuit respectively.
