What was the first beverage to be certified Glycemic Index Tested?

Under a license agreement with Glycemic Index Ltd, a not for profit company composed of the University of Sydney, Diabetes Australia and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of Australia, Syzmo™ will now prominently display the international seal for Glycemic Index Tested products and will also display the GI rating along with an explanation of the Glycemic Index rating; GI is a ranking of carbohydrates and their effect on blood glucose levels.

"This new certification gives consumers the ability to choose healthier beverages based upon GI ratings and provides additional credibility to our beverages in the market" say's Jeffrey O'Neal, President, The Organic Beverage Company. "While we've been recognized as the leader in USDA organic energy drink category, we've now advanced that a step further being the very first carbonated beverage to be certified Glycemic Index Tested".

I am guessing it was the Thorpedo sports drink from Australia. :confused:
