Barley Beats Oats in Glucose Response Study
USDA researchers fed barley ﬂakes, barley ﬂour, rolled oats, oat ﬂour, and glucose to 10 overweight middle-aged women, then studied their bodies’ responses. They found that peak glucose and insulin levels after barley were signiﬁcantly lower than those after glucose or oats. Particle size did not appear to be a factor, as both ﬂour and ﬂakes had similar eﬀects.
