how to cook in a rice cooker: pierce and keep them relatively evenly sized (http://www.livestrong.com/article/555329-baking-a-potato-in-a-rice-steamer/)

http://blog.soylent.me/post/112067551237/soylent-1-4-begins-shipping-today
the glycemic index is basically 100% made up/a guess; but it seems reasonable that a major ingredient is isomaltose which has measured GI of 32; and then some shrinkage estimation to the mean of starches from there to 40
