Question Rate of consumption vs. amount of increased insulin release

For all you technical health buffs, I was wondering, if you're consuming a fairly low GI food like oats/oatmeal, but instead of completing consumption in a matter of minutes, you spread it out over say 30 minutes...how will that effect the amount of insulin your body releases? Would it be even lower or would it be negligible?

What about if you ate something higher on the GI? Is it possible to manipulate insulin release on higher GI foods by a slower, more deliberate intake?

Thanks for your thoughts.

Well, the more you chew food, the more easily digested. And that ups the GI response...but not something I would worry about.

I would probably consider a 30 minute delay negligible. Most take around 10+ mins, anyway.

I agree with Venom... You take a certain amount of time to actually break down the food into usable glucose anyway, so if you ate 1 cup of oats in 30 seconds it would just sit in your stomach and be slowly transformed/broken-down into glucose. The flipside of course is eating 1 cup of oats in 30 minutes, where you would still take x-amount of time to break down the carbs and have them raise your blood sugar.

LOL! Interesting point...but technically, it wouldn't be that hard to do if you just drank it in some water or skim milk instead of actually chewing the oats

Well technically you could grind the oats to dust, mix them with water and down it in 30 seconds so I guess its possible.
