Low Carb Tortillas Too Good To Be True? A Blood Sugar Test!
Beat Diabetes!

Beat Diabetes!

Published on 2 years ago

In this video Dennis Pollock tests low-carb tortillas. These tortillas have 15 grams of carbs each, but 11 of those grams are fiber, leaving only 4 net grams of carbs per tortilla. But will this be reflected in a blood sugar test? Can we really trust the effect of "net carbs?" Are low-carb tortillas safe for diabetics?

Why donโ€™t you get a libre monitor? They are so convenient. Theyโ€™re small and not painful at all. Mine last 14 days before it has to be changed. I love it.

To get a sense of how much the numbers fluctuated, could you let us know what your glucose numbers were before having the meal?

They sell that brand of tortillas at my local Dollar General. The only brand that doesn't spike my blood sugar are the Joseph's lavash bread from Walmart.

I eat low carb tortillas all the time. I mostly use the Mission brand. A ham cheese bacon tomato sandwich with toasted tortilla instead of bread...heaven. Low carb tortillas are the very definition of gamechanger.๐Ÿ˜Ž

Dennis, I subscribed to your channel. Love all the BG testing you have been taking for the team. I am on diabetic med.. Without the med., two OLE tortillas raised my BG by about 90 points :-( Similar reading for the Mission brand carb-balanced tortillas. Still searching for store-bought tortillas that don't spike my BG. Hope someone here can help. Thanks in advance.

Could it be that the rise in blood glucose from eating low carb tortillas is due from how they are prepared? Maybe the high heat from baking them affects the fiber somehow and makes the carbs more easily absorbed by the body as opposed to eating them cold.

I just discovered the ole wellness tortillas. They tasted too good to be true so I did a search. You made my day! lol

I am subscribed but YouTube would not let me select the "All" option to get all updates. Right now it shows the bell with the slant through it whiich means "None". Is that something that you can get corrected? Thanks. Enjoy your videos. I have discovered low carb tortillas and have also been enjoying them while not having to watch my blood sugar go through the roof. I would be interested in finding some low-carb bread recipes I can make in my bread machine. Maybe you could do a video on that? Thanks.

Ya know I've eaten low carb for a while now and I can actually tell when I've had too many carbs. I guess my body has become sensitive to the effects of carbs or more likely I just never noticed the effects of carbs because my body was constantly flooded with them. My resting heart rate goes up. Not exponentially but I can tell. My resting heart rate in a low carb state is usually in the 60's. If I eat a bagle for instance it will go into the 70s for a bit

Toasted lightly and a little butter should make them tastier and not influence blood sugar
