  • Hello Ilidikó,

    We have come back to you with an answer from our house expert(s).  Please see their answer to your GI value below for our LeanShake and Energy Bars, respectively:

    • LeanShake - we do not have exact numbers for this product, but our LeanShake has a low GI and GL count (it is safe to use for diabetics).  The GI and GL glycemic indes and glycemic load describes how a food effects the blood sugar when you have eaten it. The GI and GL counts are very low in out LeanShake
    • Energy Bars - These also include a low GI index of 34.  Individual food classification for GI:  low 55 or lower, moderate 56-69, high 70+
    We hope this helps you, if not please come back to us and we will be happy to help you further.

  • Hello,

    I am very interested in the previous question. It's strange that you don't know the exact GI value of LeanShake even though you have tested and analyzed the products. The question on LeanShake GI is common among my customers, so I would like to appeal you to find it out and let me know back. If it is not possible to obtain this value, then I would like to know why (to I can fully inform my customers).

    Best regards,

  • Hello Tomas,

  • UPDATE June 14, 2019 to GI Value

    The Glycemic Index (GI) is calculated by measuring the change in the blood glucose which is triggered by eating a serving of the food to be tested that contains 50g of available carbs, against the change induced by 50g of glucose or white bread.

    The amount of available carbs in Leanshake is low: in a typical 2-scoop serving, there are 7g of dietary fiber, a carb which does not count, 5g of complex starchy carbs which count but not at 100%, and only 5g of sugars. This means that you would have to consume at least 5 servings (10 scoops) of LeanShake to be able to measure the GI.

    As no one would consume LeanShake in this way (and it would be very hard to do this in any case), it is effectively impossible to measure its GI. When the product was first designed, Dr. Paul Clayton approached a commercial lab who specialized in GI testing and they simply said they would be unable to test LeanShake, given its composition.
