Those of us with Type 1 and others on mealtime insulin need to know that Dreamfields pasta does NOT have less digestible carbs, as advertised, but rather has carbs that are digested much more slowly. At first, I was delighted to discover Dreamfields pasta, but quickly discovered that while my 2-hour post-meal blood glucose was great, it rose after that to a level consistent with the carbs in regular pasta. After several repeats of this experience, I called Dreamfields and was told: 1) It's really for people with Type 2 who are not on insulin, and 2) we haven't tested it more than 2 hours after eating. !!!!
