Effect of alcoholic beverages on postprandial glycemia and insulinemia in lean, young, healthy adults

Am J Clin Nutr 2007 Jun 85(6) 1545-51, FIGURE 1

Study 1. Mean (±SE) changes in plasma glucose and insulin and incremental areas under the curve (AUCs) in lean healthy subjects (n = 10) after consumption of a 1000-kJ portion of white bread, beer, wine, or gin. *Significantly different from white bread, P < 0.001 (2-factor ANOVA followed by pairwise comparisons with Bonferroni adjustment).
