Postprandial blood glucose areas under the curve (AUCs) after ingestion of meals consisting of wholemeal oat flakes, cereal bran flakes or corn flakes in twelve healthy subjects1. Significant differences of postprandial blood glucose AUCs were calculated with the Wilcoxon t-test. There were no significant differences between the AUCs.
