Good morning! I'm finally brave enough to post questions. :o. What is hwc? I've had coffee with cream and stevia. Nothing else yet cuz I can't find an answer about stevia or caffeine spiking my insulin. Any thoughts?

It's a big question. The jury is still out about stevia's interaction w/insulin and blood sugar. And coffee is definitely a YMMV thing (Your Milage May Vary). Some have trouble with it and some don't.

From Mark's Daily Apple, but you'll find differing opinions.
Quote:

Does Stevia Affect Insulin?

There is one in vitro study that showed stevioside acts directly on pancreatic beta cells to stimulate insulin secretion and another which shows similarly insulinotropic effects of rebaudioside, which may give you pause. Insulin secretion sounds like an insulin spike, no? And since we tend to be wary of unneeded insulin spikes, maybe we should avoid stevia. Itís not so simple, of course. For one, this was an in vitro study, performed in a super-controlled laboratory petri dish type setting; this was not an in vivo study of animals or people eating stevia in a natural, organic way. The results of in vitro studies are notorious for not panning out when you try to replicate them in vivo. Secondly, insulin secretion isnít necessarily a bad thing. I mean, we need it to shuttle nutrients into cells, and weíd die without it. As I mentioned in the dairy post a few weeks back, insulin is millions upon millions of years old. Itís been preserved throughout history because itís an essential hormone. Itís not always the bad guy, especially if youíre insulin sensitive.

In fact, the evidence is mounting that stevia actually is an insulin sensitizer that can aid in glucose tolerance and clearance after a meal. The Japanese have been using stevia for decades in the treatment of type 2 diabetics. Letís look at a few recent studies. In fructose-fed rats, a single instance of oral stevioside increased insulin sensitivity and reduced postprandial blood glucose in a dose-dependent manner. The same study also found that diabetic rats given stevioside required less exogenous insulin for the same effect. Taken together, these results suggest that stevia may not just be a good sugar substitute for diabetics, but an effective supplement for treatment of their insulin resistance.

Another study looked at the postprandial effects of stevia, sucrose, and aspartame in human subjects. Compared to sucrose eaters, stevia eaters showed lower postprandial blood sugar levels. Compared to both sucrose and aspartame eaters, stevia eaters had far lower postprandial insulin levels. Furthermore, eating stevia did not induce increased appetite throughout the day, indicating stable blood sugar and satiety levels. Another strike in steviaís favor.

Emel,

Thanks for the article! I guess the only way to know is by studying numbers with a glucose meter.

Does your Wal-Mart not have it?

I bet you could make some apple herbal tea and use that as your base instead of almond milk, add a tbsp of hwc to make it creamy, and get that apple flavor. If you did that I would add a bit of lemon juice for tang, but I don't like super sweet things without tang.
