This study hints at mechanisms for vinegar other than slowing gastric emptying and inhibiting carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, since subjects consumed only 1 ounce of a very low carbohydrate food. The fact that insulin was shown to be lower after meals containing vinegar suggests that the lower blood glucose is not due to increased insulin, and it may in fact be the reverse: insulin might be lower because glucose is lower. On the other hand, abstaining from caloric intake altogether, for an extended period of time, lowers insulin levels and allows lipolysis to be switched back o, thus, the body is permitted to break into its fat stores for energy. Studies on human cell lines in vitro have shown that vinegar decreases the activity of multiple disaccharidases (sucrase, maltase, lactase, and trehalase), which could certainly affect PPG.
