For bread eaters...

I have written about this before: Stone ground whole wheat vs. Pumpernickel and the debate is OVER for me! I did my own experiment with this and after eating a lunch with both and having the same amount of carbs (even though the pumpernickel has more carbs per slice), I checked my sugar 2 hrs after both...
Stone ground= 137
Pumpernickel= 97

I think I know which one I will stick with. I was having a lot of hypoglycemic episodes with the stone ground too. Just FYI for anyone that cares

BTW, has anyone ever had widespread muscle spasms prior to being diagnosed with neuropathy?

Re: For bread eaters...

This is good to know - thanks! My frustration is that it seems like most breads have either added corn syrup, sugar or cane juice or all of those. Even pumperknickel. So I've avoided bread though I do miss it! Maybe I'll give pumperknickel a try.

Re: For bread eaters...

Funny thing is...the stone ground didn't have any of that in it, yet, it made my sugar higher. I don't honestly remember if the pumpernickel I use does or not...I get the pepperidge farm dark pumpernickel. Try it and just see what it does. I got very good results.

I just checked the package and there are about 25 ingredients and the very last one is sugar, so I am assuming it's a very small amount.
