About Glyx: Glycemic Load & Index

Glyx is a user friendly database displaying nutrition details for approximately 1000 various foods, focusing on the glycemic index, which are essential for low carb diets. Glycemic values are displayed by individual food in the summaries as well as on the detailed page for each food type, which also indicates the glycemic index. The Glyx diet is similar with the Montignac und Logi methods, which also are part of the family of low calorie diets. This app also assists diabetics to configure an optimal diet.

A summary page enables a sorting order to display nutritional values, or alternatively vitamin or mineral contents, as desired. The app can thus be used to identify foods to counteract symptoms of deficiency in nutrition. To facilitate the search, the various foods are grouped into categories, with individual buttons for direct access. The search function works either for all foods or within each category. Upon selection of an individual food, the list shows the nutrition facts and facilitates the calculation of the various values with individual quantities, as entered on top of the page next to amount.

The supported nutrients are: Energy, protein, alcohol, water, carbohydrates, sugar, starch, fiber, fats (saturated, cholesterol, poly unsaturated, mono unsaturated), vitamins (A, carotene, B1, B2, B3, B5, B9, B12, D, E), sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, iron, iodide, zinc.

Glyx is currently available in 4 languages, English, German, French and Italian and supports metric as well as imperial measurement units.

In the pipeline for future versions:
• Assembling various foods to piece together an entire meal.
• To save and share own menus with other users.
• Rate and ranking of menus
• Search for foods based on ingredients and nutritional values
• Calculation of nutritional data for entire meals.
• Direct comparison of foods

GuiltyBits is made up of two software developers and Glyx is the result of their efforts in their spare time. Our vision ist the creation of user friendly apps with high functionality. Your feedback will be very much appreciated and any help to improve Glyx is welcomed.

The database is provided by the Swiss Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office http://www.naehrwertdaten.ch/request?xml=MessageData&xml=MetaData&xsl=Start&lan=en&pageKey=Start
