I think most of us new it was coming (Dreamfield's pasta)

but they lost their lawsuit. Google "dakota growers pasta company dreamfields" Law360 was the site.

Now perhaps there will be more truth in nutrition labels.

I threw out my Dreamfields long ago, so I guess no rebate for me, but I'm not surprised at the outcome... I wondered why they never tried to say (or patent) how they made their carbs undigestable, and there were lots of comments by people who checked their BG and found it no different than after eating regular pasta.

Pity, wish it had worked like they claimed.

This was a settlement, and defendants rarely admit liability in a settlement. So whether the company's claims were legitimate or not has not been determined. It may be that the product was a scam, but it may also be that the product worked for some but not others due to metabolic differences in all of us. Who can say?

I've seen several people do blood tests on themselves... 2 I can recall exactly who... both had charts nearly identical to that of regular pasta. I also dropped like a stone out of ketosis with it. I recall reading someone paid to have independent lab tests done as well and they matched regular pasta nearly to a T.

I too am aware of the woman who had Dreamfields tested. She also had Julian Bakery bread tested. And I too am aware of those who have tested their blood after eating this and seen numbers spike. And those people should avoid this product, for sure. But stories like these do not rise to the level of proof needed to prove a case in court, any more than the Dreamfields claims would. Which likely is why the case settled. For myself, as I am not diabetic, I'm not going to throw my Dreamfields out. But when I do eat it, I will do so assuming that the carb count is the total, and not the "protected" number, and keep my portions small.

I'm another person whose blood sugar spiked after eating Dreamfields, and it stayed elevated for 3 hours (I'm pre diabetic). However, for the sake of full disclosure, I'm quite sure I ate a larger portion size than the box says is one serving. Anyway, I now stay away from all pasta (spaghetti squash is good enough for me).

While I am definitely not defending it, and I don't eat it because it gives me intestinal issues, my husband who is a hard core type 2 diabetic, can eat his measured out strict 1/2 cup cooked al dente only - and it does NOT raise his blood sugar, otherwise I would not serve it to him. So I am of the conclusion that every body is constructed differently.
