Food processors-?are now using indiscriminate terms such as G?glycemic indexG? and using it to discriminate between a G?goodG? food and a G?badG? food is a danger to responsible processors avoiding such marketing deviousness as a G?Low-Glycemic IndexG? label or something similar.
NutriSystems Inc. provides an excellent example of blatant profiteering on public ignorance. The company currently is plastering national television with-?ad’s featuring well paid sports people and actors-?deceiving the public on the supposed claim that its meals and diet plan G?are based on the Glycemic Index G?? the science that separates G??badG?? carbs from G??goodG?? carbs.G? This type of deviousness groups such as the AACC, processors and nutrition writers must seek to halt.
Some carbohydrate experts deem the very act of creating such elaborate definitions errant.
G?This is G??overscience,G??G? says Mark Anthony, Ph.D., adjunct professor at St. Edwards University, Georgetown, Texas. G?ItG??s an attempt to take a very simple fact G?? starch that gets digested into sugar molecules that are absorbed and used as energy or stored can be measured G?? and make it into numbers that are predictive. Carbohydrates have already proven easy targets for a generation of nutrition confusion. Do we need to make them more confusing by overdefining them like this?G?
And it does beg the question of why such involved definitions were deemed necessary. After all, the glycemic index is simply a measure of the glucose content of a food, independent of the nutritive value of that food. WouldnG??t that have done it?
By declaring a need for weighty definitions, convening panels to develop them and formally announcing the conclusions, the AACC is acknowledging current and future misuse of the terms.
As the low-carb fad diet is now distant memory, Atkins has altered its “net carbs” method by using parts of the latest trend from Europe — a glycemic-index diet — to target U.S. food companies for products bearing the new “net Atkins count” seal.
