Strategies that decrease postprandial glucose excursions, including digestive enzyme inhibition, and low glycemic index diets result in lower diabetes incidence and coronary heart disease (CHD) risk, possibly through lower postprandial oxidative damage to lipids and proteins. We therefore assessed the effect of decreasing postprandial glucose excursions on measures of oxidative damage. Fifteen healthy subjects ate 2 bread control meals and 3 test meals: almonds and bread; parboiled rice; and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Acute effects of pistachio consumption on glucose and insulin, satiety hormones and endothelial function in the metabolic syndrome
TLDR
Compared with white bread, pistachio consumption reduced postprandial glycemia, increased glucagon-like-peptide levels and may have insulin-sparing properties, which could be beneficial for individuals with diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
Effect of oral acetyl L-carnitine arginate on resting and postprandial blood biomarkers in pre-diabetics
TLDR
Supplementation with ALCA results in an increase in resting nitrate/nitrite in pre-diabetics, without any statistically significant change in other metabolic or oxidative stress variables measured at rest or post meal.
Effects of nuts on postprandial glycemia, satiety and hunger sensations in healthy individuals
TLDR
The results of this study show that the consumption of nuts reduces the postprandial glycemic response and increases the satiety sensation.
The glycemic effect of nut-enriched meals in healthy and diabetic subjects.
Acute effects of an isocaloric macronutrient-matched breakfast meal containing almonds on glycemic, hormonal and appetite responses in men with type 2 diabetes: a randomized cross-over study.
TLDR
Overall, results suggest that almonds' macronutrient subtype profile could have a beneficial impact on postprandial glycemic, hormonal and appetite responses in men with T2D.
Postprandial Effect of Almond (Prunus dulcis) Nut on Glucose and Lipid Levels in Apparently Healthy Individuals
TLDR
Almond nut consumption may induce postprandial reduction in human’s blood glucose, total cholesterol, and Low density Lipoprotein Cholesterol levels, thereby preventing the complications of diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases and so is recommended as an in-between meal snacks for patients suffering from these diseases.
Effect of a cereal and milk meal with or without fruits and nuts on the postprandial glycemic response in Indian men.
TLDR
Cereal with milk, along with fruits and nuts at breakfast, has a lower and stable glycemic response,Along with increased satiety among healthy male subjects.
Almond Consumption Decreases Fasting and Post Prandial Blood Glucose Level in Female Type 2 Diabetes Subject
TLDR
Almond feeding significantly reduced both fasting and post prandial blood glucose levels in female T2DM subjects, suggesting that the active principle and mechanism of its beneficial effects on glycemia needs to be elucidated.
Almonds reduce biomarkers of lipid peroxidation in older hyperlipidemic subjects.
TLDR
Almond antioxidant activity was demonstrated by their effect on 2 biomarkers of lipid peroxidation, serum MDA and urinary isoprostanes, and supports the previous finding that almonds reduced oxidation of LDL-C.
The impact of pistachio intake alone or in combination with high-carbohydrate foods on post-prandial glycemia
TLDR
Pistachios consumed alone had a minimal effect on post-prandial glycemia and when taken with a carbohydrate meal attenuated the RGR, suggesting that pistachios could be part of the mechanism by which nuts reduce the risk of diabetes and CHD.

Nutritional, dietary and postprandial oxidative stress.
TLDR
Postprandial oxidative stress is attenuated when dietary antioxidants are supplied together with a meal rich in oxidized or oxidizable lipids, and ingestion of dietary polyphenols improves endothelial dysfunction and lowers the susceptibility of LDL lipids to oxidation.
Activation of oxidative stress by acute glucose fluctuations compared with sustained chronic hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Glucose fluctuations during postprandial periods and, more generally, during glucose swings exhibited a more specific triggering effect on oxidative stress than chronic sustained hyperglycemia, suggesting that interventional trials in type 2 diabetes should target not only hemoglobin A1c and mean glucose concentrations but also acute glucose swings.
Effect of antioxidant vitamins on the transient impairment of endothelium-dependent brachial artery vasoactivity following a single high-fat meal.
TLDR
A single high-fat meal transiently reduces endothelial function for up to 4 hours in healthy, normocholesterolemic subjects, probably through the accumulation of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins, suggesting an oxidative mechanism.
Serum lipid response to the graduated enrichment of a Step I diet with almonds: a randomized feeding trial.
TLDR
Isoenergetic incorporation of approximately 68 g of almonds into an 8368-kJ (2000-kcal) Step I diet markedly improved the serum lipid profile of healthy and mildly hypercholesterolemic adults.
Nuts and plasma lipids: an almond-based diet lowers LDL-C while preserving HDL-C.
TLDR
Results suggest that the more favorable lipid-altering effects induced by the almond group may be due to interactive or additive effects of the numerous bioactive constituents found in almonds.
Effect of postprandial hypertriglyceridemia and hyperglycemia on circulating adhesion molecules and oxidative stress generation and the possible role of simvastatin treatment.
TLDR
Simvastatin shows a beneficial effect on oxidative stress and the plasma levels of adhesion molecules, which may be ascribed to a direct effect in addition to the lipid-lowering action of the drug.
Effect of a diet high in monounsaturated fat from almonds on plasma cholesterol and lipoproteins.
TLDR
When the consumption of nuts high in MUFA increases the fat content of the diet, reduction rather than elevation of plasma cholesterol has to be expected, possibly due to the MUFA content of these nuts.
