: I am asking for a friend. How many carbs can you consume before it triggers insulin, same question about decaf coffee, will that small amount of caffeine trigger insulin. Thanks, Peg
Any amount of carbohydrate will trigger the release of some insulin, it is just a matter of degree. And I have read that caffine will trigger a release of insulin, but how much I do not know. Decaf coffee would probably be considered insignificant. Alan S.
