Low Gi Mashed Potatoes! And The Resistant Starch Content Of Foods

Low GI Mashed Potatoes! and the Resistant Starch Content of Foods Yesterday we saw that beans are low GI and why (resistant starch), and how they even have a second meal effect into the following day where BG spikes are significantly blunted in subsequent, non-bean, high GI meals . Potatoes are high GI, typically causing significant spikes in blood glucosenot the best choice for diabetics. But is there a way to prepare, say, mashed potatoes in a way that would not only make them significantly lower GI, but creating a second meal effect as well? OK, so per Tatertot Tim, heres a list of the resistant starch content of various foods (he hasnt thoroughly verified some of these but believes it to be largely accurate). Legumes/Beans/Lentils: 5-10g per cup, cooked Regular Corn Starch 1g per TBS (or less) The Resistant Starch content of food changes. Its different when raw compared to cooked, and different when cooked in various ways, and different when cooked and cooled. Theres no official way to measure RS. The gold standard is the ileostomy method also called in vivo. They feed a person or animal a food, then examine the contents of the small intestine just before it dumps into the lar Continue reading >>

    Can anyone help me please? Is instant mash a no-no for diabetics?

    Depends on the type. Mash (instant or otherwise) contains a lot of carbohydrate. T1s can bolus for mash, and some T2s may be able to eat small portions without it affecting them. As a T1 I will eat mashed potato but I do have the flexibility to do so.
    Generally though, a better option for everyone (regardless of whether or not they have diabetes) is mashed cauliflower - taste and texture is the same but it has almost no carbs.

    ...or mashed swede and carrot, or, my personal fave......mashed celeriac MMMMMMMMMMMM
    mashed potato is really high GI/GL and low in fibre and, as Deus says, high in carbs. mashed veg alternatives are much healthier (and tastier too! I tried some mashed potato a while ago after a long time having switched to veg alternatives and it tasted really bland - quite unappetising).
    for the swede/carrot chop both into small cubes and boil for 40mins then mash as you would potato, for celeriac, the same but boil for about 20 mins.

Can I Eat Mashed Potato?

I ate a small potion of mashed potato yesterday, and the 1h number was just fine. Is that mean I can eat mashed potato next time even thought it is white ? I ate a small potion of mashed potato yesterday, and the 1h number was just fine. Is that mean I can eat mashed potato next time even thought it is white ? 1. Never think you can't eat something, just think there are somethings you either choose not to eat or to eat rarely/in small quantities. 2. Never base a decision on a single result You will find your carb tolerance will be quite an individual thing. I don't have as much problem with a potato as I do rice or regular pasta...but i'm not a huge potato fan, so I rarely eat them. Sometimes it will also be dependent on what you eat WITH a particular food. Adding protein or fat may slow the spike and make having a potato with cheese and broccoli on it a better choice than if you just had a potato. Dave makes an excellent point though...once you make something forbidden, you will want it more (human natu Continue reading >>

What Is So Wrong With Mashed Potato ???

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community I keep reading that boiled potato, new potato and jacket potato is ok in moderation but mashed potato seems to be a big no and i would like someone to explain why this is so ? After all mashed potato is just boiled potato with a bit of milk and butter right ??? The more you break a food down, the easier and quicker your body can process the carbs from ot so you get a "spike" in BG levels. Similarly, if you ate and orange, you would not get such a large rise in levels as if you'd juiced it. So, all carbs in moderation and the way they are processed affect how your body reacts. New potato is ok for me as a small portion but jacket potato spikes me the same way as mashed does probably a more starchy type but could be the length of time cooked to release the starch ? What 'Paul-1976' says is quite right. the more processed the Potato is, the easier the human body can break the strch structure down within the gut and hence give rise to rapid increases in B/G levels. For this reason the instant mashed potato should be restricted or avoided if possible. Adding Fat in th Continue reading >>
