beer contains maltose, can beer consumption be detected by analyzing the maltose content of a blood sample?


Expert Answer

Step 1

To solve this problem, we need to understand the meaning of the term “Glycemic Index (GI)”. Glycemic index is a relative ranking of carbohydrates in food basing on how they affect blood glucose levels. Carbohydrates with a low GI value are more slowly digested, absorbed and metabolized and cause a lower and slower rise in blood glucose level.

Step 2

The concentration of maltose in beer is high. Maltose has high GI that means it i...
