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.
