The purpose of this workshop was to facilitate an exchange of scientific and technical information with stakeholders involved in selecting science-based indices to use in communicating physiologic effects of carbohydrates in foods.

The outcomes of this workshop are scientifically based summary statements for use in programs that communicate about carbohydrate quality, with the intent that future programs harmonize approaches by authoritative organizations throughout North America.
