Low GI pasta?

WoahDomino | Jan 26, 201201:59 PM

I'm posting this here as a favor to my father, who is trying to make a Low Glycemic Index pasta.

The science --> When you have glucose intolerance or diabetes, your stomach can empty too quickly, which makes your blood sugar go high, and that makes your pancreas make extra insulin, which causes you ultimately to gain weight faster than a normal person.For more information, here's wikipedia:

My question to you all is do you know of any types of pasta (or recipes for that matter) that are catered around people with glucose issues?

He also mentioned something about "Guar gum", but I know very little about low GI foods period. Any and all advice is quite welcome!
