    This is a good indicator of salivary amylase content, but that's about it. I wonder how well it reflects GI amylase activity...

    But still, the main problem with carbs is INSULIN SENSITIVITY. Just because you can break down starch into sugar, it doesn't mean you can handle carbs. You might as well just chug a bunch of glucose.

    Blood glucose testing is still king.
