Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study was to determine how blood glucose changes after eating energy bars containing resistant starch type 4 compared with bars made with puffed wheat in healthy older adults.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hyperglycemia Dietary Supplement: Resistant Starch Type 4 Dietary Supplement: Dextrose Dietary Supplement: Puffed wheat Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
To measure the blood glucose response, we collected blood samples before eating and 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes after eating each bar. The incremental area under the curve was used to calculate glycemic index.
