Atkins Diet Product Reviews: Dreamfields Pasta


Atkins Diet Product Reviews: Dreamfields Pasta

I have been asked about Dreamfields Pasta quite often by viewers, especially in my Italian low carb recipe videos. There has been quite a lot of press about Dreamfields and whether or not their method to listing digestible carbs is correct. A number of notable low carbs and one particular study specifically showed it having the same impact as regular pasta:

I had always accepted the fact that my response would have been the same. Today I wanted to test that assumption and was meticulous with my preparation, so that no one could say I broke the prebiotic matrix surrounding the carbohydrates by over cooking it. I tested for 2 hours after the first consumption, and I was surprised by the result.

My blood glucose did not change by more than 5 points from the initial 67 reading on the glucometer. I still don’t plan on featuring it in my recipe videos as I know many of my viewers can’t consume it yet being a latter OWL-phase food, but it is nice to know that the option does exist for my two Atkins-following kids who are not sensitive to gluten.

    I’m glad you posted this. I know the trend right now is to refute their claims, but my personal experience with it has been a positive one.

  • Thanks so much for sharing your BG testing on Dreamfields, Kent. Yet again, it would appears as if this product is another case of YMMV (your mileage may vary) and people just need to test their reaction to it to know how THEIR body personally reacts to it. I need to do that soon myself. My DH is T2 so there’s a meter in the house and no excuses. :)

    This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

    The criticism I heard about Dreamfeld is that the spike in your blood sugar happens several hours after consumption…3-5 hours later. Not sure if that is possible, but thought it was worth mentioning. Maybe try the experiment again and test blood sugar levels past the 2 hour mark to see if anything changes.

      I get that it might be delayed, but I tested out to 2.5 hours after consumption. If it was likely to hit me, it would have happened sooner than that. I mean I didn’t even see more than 10 increase on mine. Each of the prior experiments (Dr. Andreas and Jimmy Moore’s) saw an impact with 30 minutes and the largest impact within 1 hour. I’ll redo my test and do it with regular pasta, but the first one certainly surprised the results I expected.

  • Hey there. I discovered your blog the usage of windows live messenger. That is a truly efficiently created article. We’ll make sure to search for the item accessible back in get more information of one’s strategies. Information submit. I’m going to unquestionably come back.

      In looking at your website, your pasta is definitely seeking a different target audience that low carbers would want. Reading your description on why Carbs are necessary to justify their 30+g net carbs was filled was not in alignment with my way of eating.
