Study Description
Brief Summary:
This study tested the effects of resistant starch type 4 on blood sugar and hunger in young adults with Type 2 diabetes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Hyperglycemia Dietary Supplement: Resistant starch type 4 - raw Dietary Supplement: Resistant Starch Type 4 - Cooked Dietary Supplement: Dextrose Dietary Supplement: Puffed Wheat

Detailed Description:
To measure the blood glucose response, after an overnight fast, blood samples were collected before eating and at 15, 30, 45, 60, 90, and 120 minutes after each each bar. The incremental area under the curve was used to calculate the glycemic index and insulin sensitivity via minimal model.
