Spelt help

Does anyone know how Spelt affects diabetics glycemically? I am making cookies for everyone for Christmas but one of the folks is a brittle diabetic. I was hoping that I could make a batch of cookies with spelt and Splenda and not interfer too much with her sugar levels. What do you think?

According to Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load spelt breads are medium to high on the glycemic list. It doesn't give a ranking for spelt by itself. Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

I would try Quinoa flour, it's at 35 on the Glycemic Index (Low)
