Translating GI News and www.glycemicindex.com
If you would prefer to read GI News or a page from glycemicindex in a language other than English, there is a very easy way to translate them (or any site for that matter), using a service provided by Altavista called ‘Babel Fish’. Simply head over to www.babelfish.altavista.com and copy and paste a block of text into the first window (up to 150 words), or enter the website address to translate an entire page into the ‘Translate a Web Page’ box. Next, select which language you would like the English text translated to from the drop-down menu. Click the Translate button and Babel Fish will do all the work for you in just a few seconds.

Is it possible to make a low GI loaf of bread at home in my breadmaker? Do you have a recipe?

Unfortunately we don't have a recipe for a low GI loaf of bread. We wish we did. In The Low GI Diet Cookbook there's a Breakfast Fruit Loaf, but we imagine you are looking for standard bread that you can use for sandwiches and toast etc. The problem with creating low GI baked goods like bread in your own kitchen is the amount of flour. To reduce the GI you need to replace some of the flour with low GI ingredients such as dried fruit--which is what we did in the Breakfast Fruit Loaf.

I am really confused
The reference you made to the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition 2006 Jan 25 in the newsletter seemed to say that eating a fat reduces the GI of a food..(and thus would seem to be a good thing). In your answer to the first question in the newsletter though you seem to say that eating a fat does not reduce the need for insulin and thus presumably does not help one.

Please explain! Thanks!!
