1. raisins

    are raisins a healthy carb source?

  2. ~65 GI, mostly sugar, alkaline forming.

  3. yeah fairly quickly digestion, I like to add some raisins to my oatmeal in the morning but I wouldn't recommend them as a snack if your watching your carbs or carb timing.

    Also I remeber hearing they help counter an acidic diet, don't really know why or how just throwing it out there.

  4. Not a good idea if you are limiting sugar, which everyone should be doing anyway.
