|Active Comparator: glucose||
50 g glucose given orally 3 time in 250 ml of water. Blood glucose measurements will then be taken at time points, 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes.
|Active Comparator: sucrose||
50 g sucrose given orally 1 time in 250 ml of water. Blood glucose measurements will then be taken at time points, 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes.
|Experimental: palm sugar||
Other: Arenga Pinnata Sugar
50 g palm sugar given orally 1 time in 250 ml of water. Blood glucose measurements will then be taken at time points, 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes.
Other Name: palm sugar
- Blood glucose concentrations [ Time Frame: 2 months ]During the labratory visits subjects will ingest glucose (control), sucrose or palm sugar. At time points 0, 15, 30, 45, 60, 90 and 120 minutes post ingestion blood glucose concentrations will be measured by finger prick blood samples.
