†25% lower than the average GI value of 84 for common all-purpose potatoes
*25% less carbs than an average of a group of commonly available potato varieties. To substantiate the 25% less carbohydrate content of the GiLICIOUS™ branded potato variety compared to a group of commonly available potato varieties, the analysis of carbohydrate from representative potato varieties was undertaken by laboratories accredited by National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA). This ensured that the composition of each potato analysed is accurate and valid to calculate the average available carbohydrate content to make the comparative claim. This data source is compatible with Standard 1.2.8 and is calculated using the Code definition of available carbohydrate.
