Yeah, that makes sense. I did a blood sugar test with it and it was no good for me.. it raised my BG slowly, but it still got to almost the same point as regular pasta.

I read somewhere recently that Dreamfields pretty much lives up to its low carb claim if you don't cook it too long (very much al dente). Anyone know if that's really true or not?

I read some of the 'Dreamfields' 'fraud' links - very interesting.

What I find even more interesting though, is that it seems the low carbers were claiming they got great results on what turned out to be very high carb food.

The consensus on the lowcarbfriends forum is that Dreamfields works very well.
Maybe the meter was telling you something, and you didn't want to listen?

Not good for the credibility of 'many people'.
