I have reading a little bit about Quinoa and was wondering if anybody knew approximately what the glycemic index of Quinoa was (Good Carb/Bad Carb)? Since it seams pretty carb dense (6:1 carb to protein) I assume it must be pretty high.

Any other recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

It has a glycemix index of 35. Glymcemic index measures bodies response to 50 grams of digestable carbohydrate so it isn't related to how carb dense a type of food is. Glycemic load is what you are looking for to measure that
