I"m wondering how you are reacting to having buckwheat noodles twice a week.  There are no specific foods that one is required to eat.  

The World's Healthiest Foods website, whfoods.com, does not take any consideration for blood type customization but here are many interesting tidbits about buckwheat:

Quoted from jksl
Lola, you gave a non-answer.  

This -
"the most important consideration is what a food item does to blood sugar levels since this then impacts insulin....so depending on BT or GT, as well as secretor status and personal health issues....."

is NOT an answer to this -
"whether or not GI values were actually different for different blood types"

@Jenny, thank you very much.  That's all i needed to know.  I'll be checking out the diabetes handbook anyway, sometime in the future.


The GI remains the same whatever your blood type. It is a scientific, repeatable measure. Even though it does not seem that way! Different methods and different batches will lead to slightly different numbers. The methodology is repeatable though.

What Lola is saying is that the different blood types/indiduals react differently to a specific GI level or a specific food.

Also, the combinations of food you eat affect the total GI of the meal. Eating the buckwheat with liberal amounts of ghee would have a lower overall GI than the buckwheat alone.

That's what i thought (or knew all along).  Thanks for the answer.

Maybe that's what she meant, but that's not what she said (initially, at least).  In any case, it was pretty much irrelevant to what i originally asked.

I might try it with ghee next time, but i usually pour 1.5 tsp of toasted sesame oil on the noodles and sprinkle a little bit of red chili peppers on it.  I only prepare half a fist size of noodles for a serving and i'll always have some salad and some kind of meat with the noodles.

I'm doing absolutely fine with them.  I'd have them more often, but these 100% buckwheat noodles are pretty expensive.  They're like 8 dollars for a small package.
