A few questions about milk and the insulin index:
Are there any theories as to why milk places high on the Insulin Index? It’s placement on the glycemic index makes sense due to lactose being a disaccharide and needing to be broken down into two monosaccharides before being absorbed.
I milk is high on the insulin index, might also yogurt be high?
If milk raises insulin levels so high, wouldn’t milk be a great post-workout drink?
Does anyone know if the milk used in the insulin index studies was pasteurized and if so, would that affect the results?
