Here’s another trial with Fuji apples–Conventional Growing vs. Biological “Beyond Organic” type growing methods. The conventional apples’ blood glycemic response (red line) spiked up quickly to its peak in only 20 minutes. It also descended quickly, going well below baseline and remaining there. These levels below baseline indicate a hypoglycemic response. Hypoglycemia can make one feel hungry, tired, and foggy-headed.
By contrast, the “Beyond Organic” Biologically-Grown apples’ blood glycemic response (blue line) had a much slower rise to peak–60 minutes. The peak was quite a bit lower at approximately 110 mg/dl, as opposed to the conventional apples’ glycemic peak at approximately 122 mg/dl. Furthermore, the “Beyond Organic” glycemic response curve dipped only slightly below baseline before quickly returning to normal levels.
I find this type of work absolutely fascinating and feel that it has great potential for not only diabetics, those with hypoglycemic and/or weight issues, but also for the health of our entire population.
