The participants were studied on two occasions after 10- to 14-hour overnight fasts. The two test cereals contained the same amount of carbohydrate but different amounts of fiber.
In both groups of men, blood glucose levels rose less after they ate the high-fiber cereal than after the low-fiber cereal, Wolever and colleagues report.

Also, in the hyperinsulinemic men, the high-fiber intake reduced the rise in peak insulin compared with that seen after the low fiber meal. In the normal insulin men, the rise in insulin after eating was the same with both types of cereal.
