Hi,
I am able to eat a small amount of oat groats w/o causing a significant spike in BG. I am interested in adding flaxseed meal in the oat groats for the Omega 3 because I do not want to take the oil capsules. Does anyone know the impact of flax on BG? Will it slow the rise in blood sugar from the oats or raise it in your opinion?

Thanks--

Opinion - the fiber may slow how fast the carbs are converted to glucose. Flax seed has many potential health benefits.

Thanks mbuster for your reply. This is my thinking also.

Yes @ mbuster, the chia seeds constipate me for some strange reason, so I can't use those.
