If one ingestes sugar, we all know inulin is released to take the sugar and utilize it where the body see's fit.
So the sugar ingested causes an insulin response.
However, what happens when you chew on sugar free gum ? Or diet soda?
Does insulin get released the moment you start chewing on something sweet? Does your body control the gates of insulin dependent on what's actually digested or what your mouth is tasting ?
Basically, in a simple question, does sugar free substances initiate an insulin response? or does it have to be tangible sugar ?
