Is the glycemic index adjusting for absorption when comparing food items? For example one type of food might be lower on the index, but it's not actually lower in terms of calories absorbed it's just that the absorption is lower. So a person eats say 100 calories of brown rice and saythat's comparable to 100 calories of banana on the glycemic index but perhaps you're only getting 60 calories absorbed because the rice doesn't digest as well. I don't know, but I'd like to find out. So I will.
