Ok please explain....
Milo has a GI of 55 (low) and a GL of 8.8 (low).
When mixed in full fat milk it has a GI of 36 (low) and a GL of 9.36 (low).
So where is the "helluva a blood glucose spike" going to come from?.
But I do agree that if you want to lose weight then skip it...just drink the milk.
I stand corrected - thanks TLL.
I assumed that anything that was 50% sugar would spike blood glucose - much like eating 1.5 teaspoons of sugar, and hadn't checked the GI database. There must be something happening with the milk buffering it (maybe the milk fat) to slow digestion - milo in water has a GI rating of 55. Think 55 means it only just scrapes over the line of being in the low GI range. If you were at all heavy-handed with the three teaspoons, you would be in the bad spike territory.
It might just qualify as "slow burning", but it is otherwise not a healthy option. Too many kJ for someone who's looking to lose weight
