Has anybody blood tested the Oroweat keto tortillas?

Anybody monitoring blood glucose actively? They have the modified/resistant starch as a primary ingredient. Research around the web suggests pretty dramatic blood glucose elevation, though not as sharp a spike as normal starch. Would love to hear from people directly.

      I’m late onset type 1 and I did try these. Though they didn’t raise my sugar immediately, it did rise later, so I’d be a little higher than expected at bedtime but definitely high in the morning. It’s good the starch doesn’t convert and spike sugar immediately but almost worse that it shows up after fast acting insulin is gone. I think rather than be high for hours, it’s better to just eat the regular and dose for the carbs, even if that means a small quick spike that clears quickly.

      The thing to watch for also is that added fiber counted as carbs then subtracted in the manufacturers calculation of “net carbs” for the label can in reality convert to glucose. You just have to test.

      A big thick steak acts similarly.
