Postprandial plasma glucose levels were measured in six healthy subjects at 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, and 120 min after taking 50 g of carbohydrate in the form of wheat, rice, bengal gram dal (channa dal), and rajmah (red kidney beans) and compared with the plasma glucose values obtained after taking 50 g dextrose. Bangal gram dal and rajmah, when compared with dextrose, were found to be more effective in reducing postprandial plasma glucose levels than wheat and rice. Moreover, the mean peak rise… CONTINUE READING
