Default bread to test

Ive found what i think to be one of the best bread (taste - glycemic index), despite its 30 carb/79 gr (incl. 8 fiber). I think its sugars dissolve slowly.
Its sold only in the province of Quebec it think.
I would appreciate if somebody else would try and test it.
It is the st-Méthode club 12-grains without sugar nor fat. They have a site.

WE find it in supermarkets.

From what I've found, it's a nice bread and full of wholesome ingredients for non-diabetics at least. If you are diabetic, you'll just have to eat it and test to see if it spikes your blood sugar.

I don't see any kinds of sugar or sweeteners in the ingredients list, but be careful about products advertised as "no sugar added". That doesn't mean there isn't any sugar - it only means they haven't added any more than was already there.

Youre right but my tests are already done: 3 slices at 7.5, and im still below 10 two hrs later (most of the time).
Im looking for confirmation among other diabetic people.

Let me be sure I understand what you're saying: Your blood sugar was 7.5 (135) before you ate three slices of this bread, and two hours later you were still under 10 (180)? That is way too high for me, and I would think that you yourself might want to have dropped back down to your previous reading of 7.5 in two hours. No? Tell us more about how you manage your diabetes.

We do have Canadian members, but I don't know that we have anyone from Quebec.

Its impossible to be back to 7.5 mmol 2 hrs after eating. The norm is not to go beyond 10. The maximum for a non diabetic would be 7.8 if I remember.

Its not impossible at all. 10(180) after 2 two hours is simply too high. There is much research out now that anytime you are consistently staying over 140 for any length of time you are damaging your body. A non-diabetic would already be back down at least below 120, more likely at least 100. The closer you can keep yourself to non-diabetic levels, the healthier you are going to be.

Hi Jeanluc,

The advice normally given to diabetics is that the BG level be kept below 7.8 mmol/L (140 mg/dL) post prandial (that is, after food). A BG level of 10 is normally considered high. Non-diabetics are normally well below 7.8 (closer to 5) after two hours of meals. If you find difficulty in maintaining BG below 7.8, it is best to consult your doctor and tweak your medication, or diet or exercise(or all of these) to achieve BG levels less than 7.8 post prandial.

Regards,
Rad

This is very helpful, thank you, but what about the Canadian norm of 10? Isnt it recommended as the limit? Even having recognized that non-diabetic figures would be best? How must we understand the norm?

10 is the number that Canadian Diabetes Association gives as the upper limit, the worst case. It is not a healthy practice to allow BG level to rise to the worst case value on a regular basis. Research has found that BG levels higher than 7.8 on a regular basis begins doing damage to the body.

Here is a good website that offers sound advice on healthy BG levels and how to maintain them.

Regards,
Rad

Hi jeanluc,

As others have said already, the numbers that you quote are way too high to keep you healthy. I'd cut the bread and maybe you'll find a big improvement.

I've been a non-insulin-dependent Type 2 for ten years now and these days my readings hardly ever go above 7.8 (140) - in fact I can't remember the last time it did.

My advice would be to cut the bread!

In fact, I'm reading a book now entitled "Life Without Bread". It's well worth reading.

Best wishes - John
