I wish I could remember the source, but I read something about converting the GI to a Glycemic Load based upon the serving size which made it a more helpful figure when trying to figure out how a food impacted your diet. Again, sorry I can't remember the source.
So a food with a typically larger serving like spaghetti would have a higher GL than grapes (15 spag. vs 7 grapes), even though grapes have a higher GI (43 grapes vs 32 spag.), because we typically don't consume the same amount of grapes as pasta.
