This study investigated the effects of potassium gluconate (K), calcium carbonate (Ca) and zinc gluconate (Zn) on glycaemic response (GR), energy expenditure (EE) and glycaemic index (GI). At the current time, gastric emptying rate is attributed to GI value alterations - the faster the gastric release compared to the reference food, the higher the blood glucose concentration and therefore the higher the GI of the food. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether faster blood glucose removal from the systemic circulation influences the GR or the GI.
