Changes in blood glucose and insulin after an oral palatinose administration in normal subjects.


PMID 3914416

Abstract

Changes in plasma glucose and insulin concentration in response to palatinose ingestion were compared with those to sucrose in eight normal volunteers. When 50 g of palatinose was administered, the plasma glucose gradually increased to its peak of 110.9 +/- 4.9 mg/dl at 60 min after administration and maintained a plateau during the 120 min of the experiment. The peak value of plasma glucose to 50 g sucrose in the same group was 143.3 +/- 8.8 mg/dl at 30 min after administration and then the value sharply decreased to the fasting level. The cumulative increase in plasma glucose (sigma delta PG) to palatinose was significantly smaller than that to sucrose. The changes in the plasma insulin level almost paralleled those in the plasma glucose level. These results indicate that palatinose is more slowly absorbed than sucrose and therefore useful as a sweetener for diabetic patients.
