    By GI do you mean glycemic index? It's a good idea to spell out acronyms when you first use them in order to avoid confusion.

    Most people in a medical forum will read GI as meaning gastrointenstinal,not glycemic index. I fixed it for you.

  • Cooking.SE will accept the question about them being cooked, but they won't accept health questions so the GI part of your question would be off topic there.
