Wheat Albumin May Help With Glucose Control At Night

Previous research has found that our body is less able to tolerate glucose in the evening compared to the morning. A new study has found that wheat albumin may help better control blood sugar levels at nighttime.

Participants in the study included 20 Japanese males between the ages of 30 and 60. None of the participants were taking medication for hyperglycemia, lipidemia, or hypertension. During the first phase of the study, the participants ate a designated breakfast and lunch, then checked in to a clinic at 5pm. The researchers measured weight, height, body mass index, and body circumference, and took blood samples. At 10pm, the participants took either a tablet containing 1.5 grams of wheat albumin or a placebo, then ate dinner. They slept for 7 hours, during which time blood samples were taken. After a one-week washout period, the participants repeated the intervention, this time taking the other tablet.

The researchers found that the wheat albumin significantly suppressed blood glucose concentration during the night, compared to the placebo. No differences were found in insulin response between the two groups.

Researchers from Kao Corporation in Japan conducted the study. It was published on January 17, 2019, in Nutrients.
