Whey Low Thread 2
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
Because fructose is low glycemic, a blood test is worthless for judging whey low. It's not going to spike your blood sugar. What it will do will be a whole lot worse.
Here are a few studies that delve into the dangers of fructose:
Thank you for contacting us. I did not receive the links to the studies
you referenced below but I would be happy to comment about the pure
crystalline fructose that we use in the Whey Low products. It is usually
the high fructose corn syrup that everyone considers bad, not the pure
crystalline fructose that we use in Whey Low. If the concern is with the
pure crystalline fructose, please check out the abstracts of two recent
review articles in two prestigious nutrition journals about the effect
of fructose on insulin resistance in diabetics:
Regular consumption of Whey Low (< 80 grams/day) will certainly not
exceed the 15% threshold of energy consumption as fructose, which is
mentioned in this article. See
I think you will find that the above authors conclude there is no such
insulin resistance developed in human test subjects, especially at the
low fructose consumptions coming from Whey Low.
Listen to what they're saying. Basically they agree that whey low does indeed raise triglycerides, but they contend that as long as people don't use too much of it, they'll be okay.
Yeah, and if you believe that... I've got a bridge to sell you.
High fructose corn syrup is extremely unhealthy, but pure crystalline fructose is just as bad.
Btw, I don't care that much about fructose's impact on diabetics, I'm interested in increased insulin resistance in the obese. It's the obese that are at a high risk for insulin resistance/diabetes. Those are the people who should be avoiding fructose. Fructose = metabolic derailment.
You don't solve your sugar related health problems (obesity/heart disease/cholesterol) by switching from one sugar to another. There is no free lunch- anyone that tells you differently is trying to sell you something. If you want to lose weight, feel good, live longer, stop eating sugar. Any kind of sugar.
You heard it here first. Fructose, in 3 years, will be the next trans fats. Right now, you're eating the sweetening equivalent of margarine. Thanks to dated information and a general ignorance of fructose, quite a few people think it's a healthy option, but the anti-fructose studies keep rolling in. The public is just a few steps behind the scientific establishment.
Love,♥ love, ♥ love ♥ Whey Low! It was recommended by our doctor when my husband was diagnosed with diabetes.
Drawback: we do have to order the Whey Low online as it is not available locally so there have been times we had to resort to buying Splenda or other sugar substitutes. None compare to Whey Low.
The cost of Whey Low is not as expensive as Splenda - Whey Low's 2lb. bag is $11.99. The last time I bought Splenda at Wal-Mart it was a few cents over $7 and not even a pound (a little over 9 ounces). SO . . . when you calculate the cost, Splenda is higher.
I never pay shipping and handling because I have several friends that order with me. I just wish we could buy it locally so I wouldn't run out!
Baking with whey low is great! The consistency of whey low is so close to sugar. Not as powdery as Splenda.
We are Whey Low fans! Whey Low voted #1 in 2010 by Southern Living!
