Apparently it is the whey in milk that produces a high insulin response. She directed my attention to an article by Swedish and Danish scientists that The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition recently published, “Glycemia and insulinemia in healthy subjects after lactose-equivalent meals of milk and other food proteins".
So, should we avoid milk and chocolate or eat more of it? I would hardly recommend one or the other until we learn more about the significance of the high insulin responses that they trigger. But it’s clear than the glycemic index remains as relevant as ever for determining which carbohydrate foods trigger high blood glucose levels.
