Research Project: Glycemic Response of Whole Beans and Bean Products

Location: Sugarbeet and Bean Research

Project Number: 5050-21430-011-012-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 15, 2018
End Date: Sep 14, 2022

Test the glycemic response of whole beans vs. foods made with bean flours.

Will develop bean pasta from the top four to six formulations and will determine the nutrient composition. The glycemic index values of these plus two controls will be determined using a standardized methodology in 15 normoglycemic adults who do not have diabetes or other chronic disease conditions and in a second study with 30 adults after consuming six bean pasta prototypes, two control pastas, and two controls of glucose.
