US: New research is good news for potato lovers

New research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) demonstrates that the glycemic index the basis of many popular diets may ultimately not be of high importance to those who already follow a healthful diet. “Proponents of the glycemic index claim that a low-GI diet can reduce risk factors for diabetes and cardiovascular disease” explained Katherine Beals, consultant to the United States Potato Board and expert on carbohydrate metabolism. “But these results showed that in the context of a healthful diet GI doesn’t matter. The low GI diet was no more effective than the high GI diet for improving insulin sensitivity HDL or LDL cholesterol levels or systolic blood pressure.”
