Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Glycemic Response [ Time Frame: 2-hours ]

Enrollment: 9
Study Start Date: August 2006
Study Completion Date: November 2006
Primary Completion Date: November 2006 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1 Dietary Supplement: Resistant Starch Type 4
Active Comparator: 2 Dietary Supplement: Dextrose
Placebo Comparator: 3 Dietary Supplement: Puffed wheat

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.
