A range of healthy and tasty low glycemic index pastries
Looking for a healthier alternative to traditional baked goods?
Our products are made with the finest ingredients and are designed to offer an unmistakably measured response. We use only natural sugars, such as agave syrup or coconut blossom sugar, to provide a more balanced taste.
With Oh Oui! baked goods, you can enjoy the full flavor without the guilt. They're perfect for anyone who wants to indulge in something sweet while staying healthy! And they come in different flavors, so there's something for everyone!
Consumed in reasonable quantities, sugar (glucose) is not bad. It provides the body with the energy it needs.
But its overconsumption can be dangerous. The problem comes from current consumption patterns that bring too much sugar.
The consumption of sugar leads to an increase in blood sugar that the body will manage by secreting a hormone: insulin.
Its role is to regulate blood sugar levels at a balanced level by transforming excess sugar into glycogen (stored in the muscles, liver...) and triglycerides (fats). The blood sugar level will then drop, sometimes causing the feeling of "barbeque" after the meal.
Our collaboration with the Pasteur Institute of Lille
From the start, Oh Oui ! wanted to create pastries that would provide an undeniable answer to diabetics and all those who watch their diet.
Our choice to evaluate the glycemic index and the glycemic load of a product seemed to us to be THE solution to provide accurate information on its healthy character. This is why we chose the Pasteur Institute of Lille as our partner from day one of this project.
How do we calculate the GI of our pastries?
Before being included in our assortment, all our pastries are tested in vitro in an independent accredited laboratory. Enzyme solutions are used to mimic the digestion process in the laboratory by artificially simulating the passage through the stomach and intestines. Samples are taken at different "digestion times" to measure the carbohydrates released quickly as well as those released slowly.
