How well can our body digest whole and multi-grain foods? Like oats and bread. (Not white bread)

cack don't worry I already calculated it on my wheat digesto-meter. I came up with 0.4359393222g / minute. Is that about what you got?

"Some research indicates wheat products appear no different to the body than table sugar in creating a flood of insulin and the health problems associated with it."

So I ask again, 'How well can our body digest whole and multi-grain foods?'

the body can digest wholegrain. though some wholegrain will pass right through as the husk on the grain make it harder to completely digest. this will cause some to go undigested and straight out.

the wholegrain products are going to have more fibre in which will slow gastric emptying time so i doubt they will casue the same insulin repsonse as table sugar.
Table sugar = sucrose. Glucose is used as the standard though. which has a fair bit higher GI than sucrose.
