    Possible mechanism to increase the speed of glucose absorption?

    Interesting article on the affect of Sucralose on the rate of glucose absorption.

    The latest info I have on this board says that pre,during and immediately post
    ride nutritional objectives are almost exact opposite of non-activity periods,
    i.e., instead of nutrient dense high quality foods it is actually best to intake
    the carbohydrate dense and quickest absorption. This would be an effective mix
    of (glucose andor sucrose andor dextrose), (maltodextrin), and very importantly
    fructose to maximize the absorption at 90. Apparently now sucralose may cause
    an even higher blood sugar spike, ironically what we are shooting for during activity.
    Someone correct me if any of this sounds wrong....
    All I said was that our son, the apple of our three eyes, Martha being a cyclops, our son is a beanbag, and you get testy!
