17 June 2005 Tesco admits errors in GI leaflet Tesco's recent GI leaflet listed minced beef, bacon and double cream as very high GI foods and fresh chicken as medium GI. Cabbage, mushrooms and pears were the only fresh vegetables, salad vegetables or fruits listed as low GI. Low Carb is Easy.com contacted Hamish Renton, Tesco's Head of Health & Diet and co-author of the Tesco GI Guide with Rick Gallop, to point out that the leaflet was surely in error. Tesco responded to say that there were indeed errors in the leaflet. They said :

In essence, you are correct in that foods with virtually no carbohydrate should not be included on a list of foods with a Gi rating and the leaflet was indeed missing the supporting information, which was so crucial for their presence to be justified.

This also affected the statement below the table stating that all testing was carried out by Oxford Brookes University - which is clearly not the case with the offending products.

To remedy the situation, all foods with too little carbohydrate to be Gi tested will be deleted from the table prior to the next print run. The pdf of the same leaflet will be changed on our website.
