Guar-enriched pasta and guar gum in the dietary treatment of type II diabetes

Guar-enriched pasta and guar gum in the dietary treatment of type II diabetes

Phytotherapy research: PTR 1(4): 177-179

Guar gum in two forms of preparation decreased post-prandial glycemic profiles in patients when compared to controls. No differences were observed between the two guar gum preparations and no significant changes were exhibited in the FFA, lactate or pyruvate areas. From IRI and C-peptide curves the preparations containing guar gum produced slower and later responses when compared to controls. 30% of patients reported diarrhea after consumption of one guar gum preparation and 60% of patients found that one preparation was not palatable whereas the other preparation was considered to be pleasant.
