The notion of the Glycemic Index (GI) can be utilized to aid in the choosing of foods for a healthy
diet, leading to low GI claims that have been commonly found in various food products. The
convenience of the test subject could affect GI results, such as the type of reference food and how much
of it to be consumed. Therefore, the goals of this research were to see if white rice (Pandan Wangi) could
be used as a reference food and to compare GI result obtained from a different portion of available
carbohydrate. The recruited subjects ranged in age from 21-36 years old with BMI of 18.5-24.9 kg/m2).
Glucose measurement and sample testing (white rice and cookies) were conducted in the experiment.
Overnight fasting was required of volunteers, and blood samples were obtained using One Touch Ultra
Lifescan. There were seven points of blood sampling with triplication of glucose testing GI values were
calculated with Incremental Area Under Curves (IAUC). The result means of GI were 74±16 (white
rice), 60±24 (wheat cookies), 38±14 (NS-cookies), and 39±16 (HMT-cookies). The correlation between
IAUC glucose and rice was significant with r=0.834 (n=10, p<0,01). GI of white rice based on 25g
available carbohydrates (AVCHO) was significantly different from GI based on 50g AVHCO (n=10,
p<0.05). Pandan Wangi white rice can be used to substitute glucose or white bread in GI tests with a
conversion factor of 0.74. It needed further study regarding the use of 25g AVCHO as the basic portion
in GI test.
