THE POWERFUL EFFECT OF ACID ON GLYCEMIC INDEX 
(VINEGAR, LEMON JUICE, SOURDOUGH BREADS)

Within the last few years, several reports in the scientific literature have
indicated that a realistic amount of vinegar or lemon juice in the form of a
salad dressing consumed with a mixed meal has significant blood sugar
lowering effects.
As little as 4 teaspoons of vinegar in a vinaigrette dressing (4 teaspoons
vinegar and 2 teaspoons oil) taken with an average meal lowered blood sugar
by as much as 30 percent. These findings have important implications for
people with diabetes or individuals at risk of diabetes, coronary heart
disease or Syndrome X (impaired glucose tolerance, hypertension and high blood
lipid levels).
The effect appears to be related to the acidity because other organic acids
(such as lactic acid and prop ionic acid) also have a blood sugar lowering
effect but the degree of reduction varies with the type of acid. Our findings
show that among the various types of vinegar, red wine vinegar was the best.
And lemon juice was just as powerful. It is well known that acidity in food
puts the brake on stomach emptying slowing the delivery of food to the small
intestine. Digestion of the carbohydrate in the food is therefore slowed and
the final result is that blood sugar levels are significantly lower. Good news
for people with diabetes!
