Previously, we have had some dedicated users measure their blood sugar levels after consuming various versions of Soylent. However, 1.4 contains the largest number of changes we’ve seen since 1.0 that could have an impact on this, including but not limited to the significant reduction in fiber, introduction of new sugars, and substantial change in overall macronutrient ratios.
I saw someone in the 1.4 opinion thread mention that they don’t seem to have the same sugar rush and crash after a meal of 1.4 compared to previous versions, which seems promising, but I’ve yet to see any details from @Soylent or anyone else discussing this more thoroughly or providing any evidence of the impact that these changes may have had on the GI of Soylent.
Does anyone have any thoughts or feedback on this?
EDIT: This post from @generalblue1983 comes to mind:
There is less of the heavy heartbeating after consuming a heavy meal which you sometimes get with 1.3 if you consumed too much too fast. But there seems to be much less of this sort of thing with 1.4. It might be due to the switch from maltodextrin to isomal.
