I purchased Hi Maize 260 from one of our Diabetic Connect members and finally gave it a try yesterday. I used it 50/50 with white flour to make noodles for soup. The recipe contained white flour, Hi Maize 260, eggs, water and a little salt. It was cooked in chicken broth with chicken, onion, garlic and celery. I limited my portion to 1 cup of the "pasta" and added a generous amount of the chicken, broth and veggies. Two hours later I tested my glucose and it was at 170. This is WAY too high for me. I normally test below 130 and often below 120 following a meal or snack with the appropriate (for me) 11 - 20 carb grams.
I don't know how many others have tried this product or if it worked for them but for what I wished to use it for, it has not benefited me. I am not slamming the product. I am just sharing my experience with it. I felt I should let people know.
