Mexican Tomato Sauce
 on 28 Feb 21 10:02 AM

Using the original Mexican tomato or Tomatillo is as effective as using the diabetic medication Acarbose. Both can produce intestinal gas which can be solved by taking the digestive enzyme Alpha-galactosidase with the meal which raises blood sugar and calories too little to make any real difference. That enzyme solves the abdominal gas and discomfort problems that come with low glycemic fibrous fruits and vegetables. This is my thank you to you, Tarla Dalal.
