Many people looking to lose weight and drop body fat are looking for better bread.
Specifically, a bread that won't increase their blood glucose level.
The problem is that all grains significantly increase blood glucose levels.
But, what if we don't use bread at all?
How about a wrap made from coconut?
(Watch video: I ate Coconut Wraps and this is what happened)
I found Coconut wraps and wanted to put them to the test.
I wanted to find out how much it affects my blood glucose.
The wrap in its Western form probably comes from California, as a generalization of the Mexican and Tex-Mex burrito, and became popular in the 1990s.
It may have been invented and named at a southern California chain called "I Love Juicy" in the early 1980s.
The packaging reads:
Raw, Vegan, Paleo.
What does this mean to you?
Very little - ignore it.
Coconut meat (fancy way of saying coconut)
Protein - 1g
Fat - 5g
Carbs - 6g
The consistency feels waxy in nature.
If you were to put a liquid or oil on it, I do not believe it would absorb quickly.
But the good news is that it smells like bread.
Using the Dexcom G6 CGM (continuous glucose monitor) implanted into my shoulder, I measured my results.
Baseline Glucose: 104mg/dl
20 min: 103 mg/dl down 1
40 min: 105mg/dl - up 2 mg/dl
90 min: 98mg/dl - down 6 mg/dl
*No major changes at all across time.
What does all this mean?
It is possible to have a good-for-you, low glycemic wrap.
However, it's not a grain.
It's made from coconuts!
They can be used to incorporate into a low glycemic index, low insulin diet.
