Certification Process

The Glycemic Research Institute® provides global Claim Substantiation and Certifications in the fields of the Glycemic Index, Diabetes, Cephalic Response, Adipose Tissue Fat-Storage, and Childhood Obesity (Kid-Friendly).

Products that are accepted for Certification are limited to orally ingested foods, beverages, Nutraceutical, and Pharmaceuticals.

Products that are accepted into the GRI Certification Program will undergo Board Approved Human In Vivo Clinical Trials. Test Foods (products) that pass the clinical protocols qualify to display the GRI Government Certification Marks on products labels and brochures, and to make specific claims. All Clinical Trials are based on FDA CFR21 Guidelines.

A Clinical Studies Coordinator will be assigned to work one-on-one with the client.
