Hello,

I am looking for some advice in relation to Greenwheat Freekeh.

Nutritional information suggests that 100g of the stuff equates to 6-6.5 CP - however as a low GI food I'm not sure what to do with it - I can't find anything specifically related to this grain..

Any help greatly appreciated - lunch is calling!

Thanks,

Pippa

Just been doing a little googling and found below - working on this logic would it be fair to consider that I should consider halving insulin - might give this a go and see how I get on..

"Low carb" food. Resistant starch plus high in fiber (up to 16.5% fiber). Available carbs are about 45 units / 100.
