Tate & Lyle can help diabetes


2019-11-22

Tate & Lyle PLC (Tate & Lyle) is working with customers worldwide to improve the healthiness of the food supply. Diabetes affects over 425 million people globally (Source: International Diabetes Federation) and recent World Diabetes Day provided food and beverage businesses with an opportunity to consider what more they can do to support global efforts to tackle Type II diabetes.

Given public health concerns surrounding the high incidence of diabetes and metabolic syndrome, managing blood glucose is very important. Tate & Lyle has published a white paper which explores the diabetes epidemic, dietary interventions and the role food and beverage manufacturers can play in developing products to help consumers manage blood glucose. It also looks at how Tate & Lyle’s innovative ingredients, such as fibres, rare sugars, and low and non-nutritive sweeteners, can help address glycaemic response in food and beverage products.

Tate & Lyle’s range of fibres and sweeteners can help food and beverage manufacturers produce lower calorie, high fibre options for consumers that can help keep blood sugar at healthy levels, without compromising taste, says the company, whose soluble fibre products have reportedly been shown to significantly lower postprandial blood glucose and insulin levels.
