Default I just ate pasta, with a 7 pt glucose rise

I just ate Dinner, I had 8 OZ of pasta, with a 7Pt BG rise after 1 hour , after 2 hours it was down 7 points lower than I started (no insulin used).

My BGL risses over 100 Pt's when I eat Dreamfield and that is with just 2 oz of the stuff.


It was Shirataki pasta, I had heard about it on forums. I found it in the grocery store and tried it. It felt like pasta, chewed like pasta. Tasted like pasta (I think, so long since I ate pasta I cant remember the taste)

5:00 PM BGL 71
7:00 PM BGL 88 started to eat dinner
8:00 PM BGL 96
9:00 PM BGL 81

I love this stuff.

I made a stir Frye, 1 part ground lamb, 1 part ground pork, 2 parts hamburger. add zucchini, onion, mushroom, garlic and cheese and SHIRATAKI pasta.


Take the pasta rinse well, par boil 2 minutes, dry on paper towls, mix in to the food.

These have been on my grocery list for ages, and I think I can get them at an oriental market nearby . . . I just have a question: Is there a difference in these noodles in that some are made of tofu and some are made from something else? Or are they all made of tofu? What exactly am I looking for?

these are not tofu. They are made from soluable plant fiber. They come in packages packed in water, so they are not dry. The package should say shirataki pasta on it somewhere
