GI Diet: How do I work out GIs for non-listed items?

I've just put my portly frame on a GI Diet. I have books that detail what main ingredients are allowed, but how can I work out rough GI ratings for specific items that aren't on any lists? Also, is there a good free website that can help?

Ooops - premature cut off! Have you tried this GI calculator?

The University of Sydney has a searchable GI database. If you haven't already chosen a specific eating plan, may I recommend the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet? You can download a 16-page overview of the diet with 7 weeks of meal plans (and lots of recipes) here, or buy the book.

...and that'll teach me not to mousehover existing links on the page.
