Kashi Beats Cornflakes in Time to Exhausion Test
This small study suggests an increased time to exhausion on a treadmill following a meal low on the glycemic index scale. "Prior to one exercise test each subject consumed a Low Glycemic meal (LG = 40) consisting of Kashi® GOLEAN Crunch® (Kashi®) and prior to the other exercise test they consumed a High Glycemic meal (HG = 72) consisting of Cornflakes (Kelloggs’ Co.) with low fat milk 45 min before testing." RESULTS: The results showed there was a statistically significant difference between the trials of the High Glycemic (12:05±0.05) and Low glycemic meals (13:57±0.03) in the time to exhaustion (p=.008). THE EFFECTS OF HIGH AND LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX MEALS ON ENDURANCE PERFORMANCE.
