Is there a document, image, chart, graph, case study, or diagram which shows the insulin index for various artificial sweeteners? I’ve looked and looked but all I’ve found are rat studies and anecdotes. I keep seeing that Ace-K causes an insulin spike (which I totall believe) but where is the science? Everyone is different, I get that but seriously is there no real science being done in this area or am I just terrible at searching for answers. Thanks in advance.
The reason I originally asked this question is I’ve shifted towards slightly higher protein and lower fat recently but most protein powders have Ace-K. Since protein spikes insulin some anyway does this really matter? After all insulin is required to shuttle amino acids into cells along with glucose right? So does a little additional insulin spike from the sweetener just help that process?
