Keywords: Nutritive value, Glycaemic index, Burger, diabetes,

Prevalence of diabetes mellitus has increased all over the world particularly in the developing countries including Pakistan. A study was designed to determine the nutritive value and glycaemic responses of 5 different test and control meals including chapatti + eggs and three varieties of KFC burger (Zinger, Chicken, Sub 60) and local burgers. To determine the nutritive value approximate analysis (CHO, Protein, fat, ash, fibre contents) of 6 different meals were done and to determine the glycaemic responses blood was taken by Finger Prick method and glycaemic responses were noted after 0, 30, 60, 90, 180, 120 minutes for diabetic volunteers on 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, 120 minutes for normal volunteers. It was observed that all the five burgers included in the study possess high glycaemic indices. It is conceivable; therefore, that diabetic patients and obese individuals should not take all these burgers in their daily routine
