I have a question regarding the amount of simple carbohydrate one might ingest and the resulting insulin spike. If a solution contisting of say 80 grams of maltodextrin or dextrose results in a certain degree of blood sugar elevation, would a dosage half that amount create a relatively lesser insulin rise?
I don't intend this to be a math problem! What I'm trying to get at is this: is there a specific "threshold" to which one might ingest a glucose solution before a drastic insulin spike occurs?
If anyone can reference any studies to me, that would be great. Thanks!
