Thanks for the all info. I tried it last night with dinner. BG before dinner at 100. One hour after at 126. Two hours later at 106. Three hours later at 96. Fasting this morning at 100.

Before I add it to my diet on a regular basis, I plan to eat it during the day so I can test after four and five hours to make sure there isn't a delayed spike.

I hope this works for me since I'm struggling to keep weight on with my current low carb diet. It's working to keep my BG in check but it's hard to eat enough calories in a day, even with additions of nuts, oils, proteins, etc. Living in South Korea, I don't have access to many low carb products, so I'm trying to find local products to help fill in some calories.

Some of the intact grains like millet, barley and quinoa even though they have carbs seem to digest very slowly, so are better for bgs. I can handle a small amount. If you need to add weight on increase your protein, especially beef with fat.
