Also the medics can correct me if i am wrong, but i seem to remember that once exercise has started insulin secretion is greatly reduced and thus High GI/GL carbs dont have a large effect on blood sugar levels.

Found out recently that Xylitol, which is excellent for dental health, can cause a noticable amt of intestinal gas if ingested in sufficient quantities. For this reason some ppl have switched to Erythritol which appears to have many of the dental health benefits of xylitol w/o the gassy-ness.
Am also looking into Glycerol (glycerine) which is used by some endurance athletes to counteract dehydration by "glycerol loading" before an event. However glycerol should never be consumed undiluted, as unhydrated glycerol will draw water (away) from tissues (where it is often needed).

I have read something about glycerol also, apparently useful for marathon runners etc in high temp/humidity races as it allows them to hold extra water in their system.
With the extra water also comes extra weight though and it can cause mild intestinal discomfort so the benefits way not outweigh the problems.
All very interesting though.
