    GI is absolutely ridiculous and impossible to plan around dude. If youre carb sensitive which anyone whos overweight is limit your carbs to post workout. Otherwise it doesnt really matter

    no, because sugar (maltodextrin) is the first ingredient there after oats & whey, and there's only one gram of it

    go sugar up boys...all the f&n gurus say its ok

    Health Effects of Simple, Refined & Complex Sugar / Carbs:

    Medical problems developing as a result of consuming refined or complex carbohydrates are generally
    of a digestive nature, such as longer transit time (refined carbs), or abdominal bloating (complex carbs),
    or they adversely affect mineral uptake and balance (iron, calcium, zinc...). With the exception of dental
    caries that can be linked to the consumption of various types of carbs, medical problems resulting from
    ingesting simple carbs (sugar, honey, molasses, syrup, candy, pop, cakes, any sweet / overripe fruit...)
    are much more significant:

    • In contrast to complex carbs, simple carbs require more resources of specific nutrients such as biotin,
    Vitamin C, manganese and chromium.

    • Manganese is unaffected by complex carb intake, but simple carbs lower manganese levels in those
    with hypoglycemic (low blood sugar) tendencies, and they raise manganese levels in individuals with
    an inclination for hyperglycemia (high blood sugar).

    • Simple carbs (including fructose from fruit) promote the formation of VLDL triglycerides, while refined
    or complex carbs don't, so in contrast to complex carbs, simple carbs raise the risk for cardiovascular
    disease.

    • Simple carbs decrease omega 3 Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs) and germanium levels (which have
    blood thinning properties), and complex carbs support or enhance both.

    • Unlike simple carbs, complex carbs are fiber-rich, which:
    - improves digestive health and transit time,
    - may result in lower absorption / bioavailability of specific minerals, particularly calcium, iron, zinc...
    - slows glycogen conversion, which better stabilizes blood sugar.

    • Unlike complex carbs, simple carbs (sweets) can cause pain when in contact with exposed dental
    roots.

    • Simple carbs can promote osteoporosis in trabecular bone through the chromium / parathyroid
    mechanism, while complex carbs can promote osteoporosis in cortical bone through a calcium-
    lowering effect, which they have in common with high protein / phosphate sources.

    • Simple carbs - unlike complex carbs - trigger more medical symptoms such as headaches, fatigue,
    depression, drowsiness, skin eruptions, mucus / throat discomfort, or sugar withdrawal symptoms.

    • Simple carbs - unlike complex carbs - can be a causative, or contributing factor with mood disorders,
    and - particularly with children - behavioral problems. (see also Acu-Cell Disorders "ADD / ADHD"
    and Acu-Cell "Chocolate").

    • According to some research, simple carbs - unlike complex carbs - promote free radicals.

    • Simple carbs - unlike complex carbs - effect an opposing change in hyper / hypoglycemics, resulting
    in a higher sodium / potassium ratio with hyperglycemics, and a higher potassium / sodium ratio with
    hypoglycemics, which can subsequently lead to an increase in blood pressure with the former, and a
    decrease in blood pressure with the latter.

    • In contrast to complex carbs, ingesting simple carbs reduces the WBC's ability to destroy bacteria
    (phagocytosis). In sugar-intolerant types, this can lead to increased pus formation, and in patients
    with leukemia to an increased WBC count. There is also an inhibiting effect on the immune system
    by the formation of AGE's (advanced glycosylation end product).

    don't mean to sound rude, but these are mostly whole grained rolled oats, which we agree are low GI (right?)

    the only other ingredients in this product in any sufficient quantity are whey and sugar (2% by weight)

    for this to be a high GI product, then either a) mixing whey with oats, b) mixing sugar with oats, or c) mixing whey & sugar with oats have to make this high GI. most other ingredients are 250 mg or less. if you specificaly cite one and tell me why it turns the whole thing into a high GI food, i'll believe you.

    my original comment was in regard to the fact that normal flavored oatmeal with ~13 g of sugar is usually high GI when you look it up on a GI chart. the addition of 13 g of sugar is likely what increases the GI of those products.

    will 1 g of sugar do the same thing? i assume the answer is no.

    GL = 66/100 x Net Carbs(23) = 15.8

    GL is affected by net carbs not total sugar, also look at fruits most are low on GI/GL but are high in sugar. A peach is a 33 on the GI and is 13g of sugar
