The essence of Dreamfields is 'how cooked it gets'. The instructions specify exactly how long, and when I was using it, I even reduced the specified cooking time by two minutes. If you just throw it in the pot & cook it like every other pasta, then it acts like every other pasta and prob'ly spikes. You can't cook it past the directed time. Just read the package, Magdalene.

p.s. as regards oats, we need to keep in mind that gluten-free isn't carb-free, and all grains are pure carbs. At my diabetic household there is no corn, no wheat, no oats, no rice, no barley or any other plants that fall in the grain category, including the new ever-so-fashionable ones like quinoa.

Yep. Resistant starch. Interesting stuff. Being an experimenter, I bought a bag of potato starch but so far, since I am doing so well with diet alone, I have been afraid to use it

Resistant starch is just another thing which humans cannot digest, like fiber. It proceeds right to the colon where it rots - i.e., is consumed by resident bacteria. This produces gas. Additionally, some of the waste products from the bacteria can actually be used by us, but none of them are vital to any process or needed. I prefer to live mostly on things I can digest with my own bodily processes, chemicals, enzymes, etc., "natively". I just fail to see the logic or benefit of consuming a lot of things I can't digest and which only yield any nutrients inefficiently and in small quantities.

We're not cows, who live on these bacterial waste products (which, by the way consist mostly of all the things we're told not to eat). They have to eat everything TWICE. They send it to the fermenting chamber then after a while they barf it back up and chew it again before letting it rot for a second time. Rabbits eat their own poop for the same reason.

If we need to eat these things, we have a bacteria colony which will break them down producing some nutrients, but there are more direct and efficient ways to get the nutrients we need. We only eat our food once, so we can never extract their nutrients as well as pure herbivores do.

Yuck Salim... I always said that was why I was a carnivore.. I let the animals eat the green stuff and I eat the animals after they have processed all the good stuff out of the green stuff and converted it to yummy red stuff, ie steak
